Nicky turned to yoga as a refuge during her teens and got her 200hr certification in 2007 from Yoga Mountain. Her practice deepened with yearly retreats to Kripalu focusing on meditation and philosophy, and advanced teacher trainings with Kula For Karma and Nikki Myers. Her classes reflect her Reiki Master training by weaving in approaches to balancing the chakras, or energy centers in the body. As a Licensed Massage Therapist she knows the importance of proper alignment and provides modifications for limitations or injuries. Nicky believes strongly in the mind, body, spirit connection and that all three should be addressed for healing and growth. Mindfulness, compassion, and acceptance are the foundations of all her classes and she is grateful to be able to share her love of yoga with her community.
