Vayia Nafees

Hi I’m Vayia, I inspire spiritual growth as a teacher, coach and author.


I am so excited by life right now; I am finally living my soul purpose. I recognise that life is a journey and we are born to experience contrasts but the power I have discovered within myself, through my deep yoga, meditation and Reiki practice has enabled me to find inner contentment and peace in this life. I am now on a mission to create a powerful ripple effect of positive change across the world.



My Story

On the outside, I had everything; a dream job, fabulous friends, a great social life and an abundance of money. But it wasn’t enough.


I realised that this inner sadness was because I had been living someone else’s dream, even though at the time I thought it was my dream life. The life I had created wasn’t in alignment with my spirit but I had no idea how to connect with it or allow it to guide me to happiness. 


So I did what any young person does when they feel a bit lost; I went travelling.


At the age of 25 I was in South East Asia travelling and under no coincidence, I found a little healing centre in a little village in the northern valleys of Thailand.


From this day my life started to unfold in more magical ways than I ever could have imagined. I met and learnt from many experienced teachers within different subjects within the spiritual holistic and personal development field.


I started to see and experience how all of my experiences of the past had made me who I was today. I also noticed how experiences from the past were holding me back from being the best I could be in the present. I wanted to change this, I wanted to release all limiting beliefs I had picked up along my way, I wanted to forgive myself and all other people that had ever caused me to hurt. I wanted to discover who I really was, take away my experiences, take away my beliefs, take away my emotions and personality then what is left?


I spent three winters in Thailand learning Reiki Level 1, 2 and my Reiki Masters Course. I undertook my basic 21 days silent Vipassana meditation followed by four more 10-day retreats (over 600 hours of meditating in the temples in Thailand). I spent one year working with an acupuncturist. I learnt EFT, tapping, dance and started my journey with Yoga. I started to understand that there are many different aspects/levels/dimensions to a human being and these different parts of ourselves all integrated with each other.


Eight years on and I have been teaching what I learnt to others through Reiki, Yoga and Meditation. I continue to learn and teach as that is life, we never stop growing, we never stop furthering ourselves. I wish to share all the knowledge and tools I have gained with all the lovely souls that wish to advance themselves in the area of personal and spiritual development.
