Nicole began her yoga practice in early 2015 in an effort to relieve anxiety and build core strength – “I could throw my back out with a good sneeze.” She was immediately hooked and started regularly attending vinyasa flow classes. After a few months of practicing, she attended a Baptiste class. “I had no idea what it was and to be honest, it kicked my butt. I was spent and sore and a bit overwhelmed, but something about that practice spoke to me and I knew I wanted more of it.” As she found the power available to her on and off her mat, Nicole felt an itch to become a yoga instructor. She enrolled in a 200-hour teaching training program and received her certification in 2017. She is overjoyed to be on this teaching journey, sharing the magic of yoga with others.
