We spend our lives in search of ourselves. As if 'it' was something outside of us, we search for it everywhere except within ourselves - in our careers, our relationships, our status.

The real journey is inward.

At Nomad, we design products & experiences that expand the mind & inspire self- discovery through Self-Awareness and Emotional Intelligence workshops and spiritual wellness retreats.

We help individuals step outside their current experience to gain new awareness, in order to rewrite their story in a way that opens up new choices and possibilities. Using the principles of Design Thinking, Mindfulness Meditation and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), we help you become emotionally intelligent and self-aware. All the answers you seek are within you - we just help you find them.

The more self-aware you are, the more you are able to understand others because you will see some of their behaviors in your own behaviors. This, in turn, will lead you to a greater acceptance of others, empowering you to effectively lead and motivate people, and develop mutually beneficial relationships.


Ivana, Founder

My name is Ivana and I'm the founder of Nomad. I am an NLP Master Practitioner, a Meditation teacher certified by the Canadian Yoga Alliance, an experienced Design Thinker and workshop facilitator, and a former NCAA tennis player.  I’m curious and open-minded and look for experiences that allow me to explore the aspects of myself that I have long forgotten. I’ve been on a journey of uncovering my truth, and differentiating between my true needs from the needs and opinions of others. I want to inspire others to do the same: to unlock energies inside us, get in touch with our higher self, to activate change and come out of hiding. I’m inspired by experiences: music, books, art, nature, yoga, meditation, and travel. Personal discovery and learning are a never-ending process.



I try to live my life rooted in empathy, seeking to understand first. I have a high desire to help others learn, grow, and develop, and through that process, I contribute to my own personal development. I believe that we are all inherently good, and that our communication is made easy once we understand where we are coming from, and through which filter we are looking at the world.


I look for new ways to tackle problems creatively, and I try to use a variety of approaches, whether it be through the lens of NLP or design thinking. I believe that looking at problems from different angles, positions, perspectives, or with an entirely new lens allows more information to come into our awareness, generating new ideas and even re-defining problems. I welcome experimental and non-routine types of options and want to provide myself and others with enough creative space to express our uniqueness.


Perhaps the most important value. For me, it is the ability to express my truth, to respect my boundaries, and to allow others to do the same. It is the feeling of purity in my heart and soul, knowing that my thoughts and actions are aligned, free of self-doubt, guilt, and self-sabotage.
