Yoga with Nichole is exactly what my mind and body need and I look forward to re-grounding myself every week. Her calming teachings, beautiful music selection, and radiating energy are the perfect combination and I always feel more connected to myself after one of her classes.

I thoroughly enjoy my yoga classes with Nichole. I appreciate how Nichole brings her wisdom to each class, sharing snippets of sutras as we move through poses. This is unique to Nichole, and shows her genuine love for yoga as a whole holistic lifestyle.
Her yin classes are especially magical, I’m always left feeling utterly transformed and relaxed. The little community she has cultivated offers a sanctuary of support that is much needed in the modern fast paced life we lead. I truly can’t thank her enough. Namaste, my sweet friend!

I’ve been practicing with Nichole for the past two years and find myself looking forward to every class! Her down-to-earth approach to yoga philosophy paired with the relaxing yin poses create the perfect environment to lean in 😍 plus her support for props and alterations help me feel comfortable in my unique body ❤️

Nichole’s yoga classes are always a highlight to my week.
Whether it be a slow flow or yin yoga class I always leave feeling better. Better settled in my mind and body. Nichole’s classes are informative and inclusive. There is always something I take away from her classes. Whether it be a new way to do a physical posture, a breathing technique or a quote that resonates with me to carry with me off the mat. Her classes allow space to be still and mindful which is something I don’t always find for otherwise. The option to do classes online has made finding time to do yoga so much more accessible. I’d highly recommend trying a class, your body and mind will thank you!

Nichole teaches yoga with the sense of wonder, curiousity and inquiry of a student . She offers thoughtful and intelligent readings at the start and end of each class , often with a theme or guiding principle which is woven through the postures. A short guided meditation provides grounding and breath work to anchor the practice to follow . The song playlists are curated beautifully to align with the postures and energy of the practice . Each posture is described with detailed expression allowing the ability to transition seamlessly without need to open the eyes , or look at a screen throughout the movements . I appreciate Nichole’s innovation in creating fresh new sequences for each class. Her clear and creative vision inspires and challenges my perception in the supportive and safe space provided , allowing for growth and renewal to naturally coexist .

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.

First come first serve (it is suggested you show up 15 minutes in advance). Check out Motion Fitness' schedule here. Quick tip: filter your search by "Brighton" location, and instructor "Nichole B". (You may also catch me subbing other yoga classes, too!).
Flow classes are geared to all levels (beginners, advanced yogis alike). This class takes foundational inspiration from vinyasa yoga with repetitive + therapeutic movements for mobility, strengthening asanas + some longer held stretches to release lingering tension. Throughout the class, there will be a strong emphasis on connecting with the breath (merging pranayama as our focus point making this a beautiful “moving meditation”) — the ultimate gateway to regulate + soothe our nervous system.
