Nicole’s yoga journey began in 2000, when she started taking classes as part of her Dance Education minor at Illinois State University. As she began to feel the transformation yoga had on her life, she felt inspired to share the gift of yoga with others. She began teaching yoga in 2011 and became a Registered Yoga Teacher in May 2016 upon completion of a 200 hour training program at Yama Yoga, through Yoga Alliance. Drawing upon various styles including Vinyasa, Hatha, and Power yoga, her classes are an energetic and reflective expression of yoga, that emphasize alignment based movement led by the breath. She believes that the mind-body connection teaches us how to live a fulfilling, healthy, and happy life on and off the yoga mat. She encourages students to play with their edge, while providing a safe, encouraging, and nonjudgmental environment where each individual can achieve their full potential.
