With an extensive training background in competitive gymnastics and professional dance, Nikki’s love of motion, curiosity about the human body, and desire to heal led her straight into the arms of yoga, where she first experienced authentic connection. Yoga, with its emphasis on breath and mindfulness, brought equilibrium across the entire spectrum of her life. Nikki is an E-RYT and currently holds 450 hours of yoga certification including Power, Hot Power, Vinyasa, Yoga Sculpt, and Restorative formats. During class, she guides students though a physical practice that pushes beyond one’s body and drives into the deeper metaphysical properties we all possess. The strength cultivated in her classes helps one to grow his/her asana practice, but that same strength can be translated directly into all aspects of life. Nikki believes that yoga is much more than the shapes we create with our bodies. A genuine yoga practice is one that transcends the confines of a mat or studio. True yoga is found in how we see ourselves, how we choose to view the world, and how we interact with others. It is ultimately a lifestyle and lifelong practice that anyone can pursue.
