Yoga Bio

Nichole’s yoga journey began in 2006, as an effort to bring more movement and focus into her life. It wasn’t until after her transition to motherhood in 2011 that lead her to a steady practice to reconnect back to her body, and to inspire self growth and stillness. With a passion for intentional setting and energy work, Nichole discovered that yoga moves beyond just physical strength, but also of the mind/body/spirit connection, and cultivating more love in all that you do. A practice of tuning into your awareness, learning to quiet the mind, and opening yourself up to infinite possibility.

Nichole’s formal yoga training includes:

  • 200 hours of yoga teacher training with Ryan Leier and One Yoga in 2019
  • Prenatal intensive (10 hour) with Inner Peace Yoga
  • Yin Yoga Teacher Training (50 hour) with Bernie Clark in 2020
  • Meditation Teacher intensive (15 hour) with Carolyn Budgell
  • Spa Yoga Teacher Training (20 hour): a blend of hatha, restorative, therapeutics with Carolyn Budgell in 2021

She has a love for the dualistic practices of vinyasa and yin yoga, and is passionate about connecting her practice to the 8-limbed path found within the yoga sutras. You will commonly experience the connection between yoga philosophy and mindfulness weaved into her classes.

YOGA OFFERINGS

Virtual Yin Yoga

Join us every Thursday evening for an hour of yin yoga from the comfort of your own home via Zoom. Classes take place from 7 to 8pm CST, and recordings are available should you be unable to join live. 

Classes are geared towards all levels. You can expect an opening discussion/theme, followed by meditation/breathwork, and yin postures with modifications to meet your body where it is.

Yin classes are a beautiful way to nurture your physical body, to bring deep relaxation. The yin practice involves holding yoga asana (postures) for a longer length of time, it serves to stress and release the connective tissues, while improving joint health. As we slow the body, we slow down the breath, and slow down the mind.

The Zoom link and details will be sent out within 24-48 hours.
