As a single mom of two amazing boys, I’d found a sense of calm, peace and order – along with an incredible workout. I found myself supported physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually by my yoga practice. I started to realize that yoga was leading me down a path of not only physical well-being, but emotional healing, and I knew it was something I wanted to share with others. I learned more in my 200-hour teacher training than I could ever imagine, and am excited to continue my journey as a teacher and a yogi.
I am grateful for my incredible network of family and friends and love spending time with them. In addition to practicing yoga, I also love circuit training, running, CrossFit, and kickboxing. I have a passion for art, music, travel, and baking. I am grateful for, and passionate about life, and enjoy living it to the fullest!
To this day I still remember sitting in my car in the parking lot, thinking about not going to the class, and crying. I was so scared. What if people judged me? What if they looked at me weird? I don't know anything about Yoga! I can't touch my toes! Although taking a yoga class was something that was completely out of my comfort zone, I'm so glad that I went. It was life changing. The moment I stepped into the classroom all my worries went away. I didn't feel judged and I didn't feel like anyone was staring at me. Although I couldn't hold half of the poses, I felt like I was doing everything right and that I was in the right place. It was a wonderful feeling! From that point on, I knew that I wanted to keep yoga in my life forever and show others what I have felt.
You often hear people say "you don't have to be flexible to take a yoga class". Guess what? THEY.ARE.RIGHT. Yoga will transform you mentally and physically, so come start your journey with me! You'll find yourself coming back for more. When I'm not teaching yoga, you can find me on the Lyra Hoop, Silks, or at a group fitness class ( I love to try to new classes now, lol! ) I have a wonderful Fiance, 4 cats (#catlady), and a dog. I'm a morning person, I like to keep myself busy, and I am a clean freak. You can find me listening to Christmas music in April, Oldies, Disney Music, and hits from the 2000s (in the class room too!!).
I'm so grateful to apart of Nina's Studio and I hope we have a chance a meet!
I have found that I connect with Hatha Yoga and I like to explore meditation in the same sense, exploring dark and light, sun and moon, yin and yang.
Creating classes that are for all levels and that consist of a guided meditation followed by a gentle yoga flow to decompress, destress, and relax is what I really enjoy. I invite my students to just enjoy an opportunity to move their body, breathe deeply and simply feel good.
Guiding people through gentle yoga and meditation as a really great way for them to slow down, connect with their body, and calm their mind is what it’s all about for me.
I am also a big believer in people’s need to reconnect and live as one with nature and so I enjoy using nature imagery, and sounds.
Nature can really support us in settling down, so maybe we’ll begin with a five-minute grounding meditation in nature ..or, maybe we’ll take a mindful garden walk together 🙂
In Nicole’s heated vinyasa classes you can expect to link mind and body with ujjayi breath in order to flow through postures from basic to advanced. The challenges you may seek can be found through differentiated poses and countless options for advancement and play. Discover where your powerful, steady breath may lead you.
When I saw how peaceful yogis were practicing yoga and in meditation, I knew I had to have that in my life. Peace was what my heart was screaming for, I just didn’t know how to find it through all the noise. In 2012 I began practicing yoga watching YouTube videos at home. I found a teacher named Adriene and fell in love with her teachings. Throughout the years I practiced but the healing I needed just wasn’t there. I found a studio called Elemental Om in Montgomery and through the studio enrolled in yoga teacher training. I graduated from Elemental Om in November of 2019 with my 200 RYT and that’s where the real transformation happened. Yoga has given me so much and continues to heal parts of me I didn’t even know needed to be. Through teaching I’ve found a community of like minded people who are all on the same journey as me and that’s to heal and find our peace. I can’t wait to meet and get to know each and everyone of you! See you soon.
