My name is Nicki, an RYT200 Seasonal Yoga teacher and I’m passionate about Yoga and what it can do for your body and mind. Yoga makes me feel like I can do anything, it makes me calm, eases the chatter in my mind, it moves my body and I feel open and relaxed and I want to share that feeling with you all. I want you to feel like a superstar, because you are!
Seasonal Yoga combines Yoga, Tai Chi and Qi Gong, breathing techniques and meditation, which along with some lifestyle tips will help you get the best out of the time of year and what’s going on in nature. Think of it this way, do you sometimes get the ‘winter blues’? Then Seasonal Yoga can help you overcome that. Why is summer the season of love? It’s because our energy is high and our hearts are open. Join me and become in tune with the seasons.
Many people have turned to Yoga and wellness during the pandemic and like the convenience of practicing at home, so classes are available face to face in the studio and online at the same time. Whether in the studio or online you can be part of our ‘Seasonal Yoga tribe’ and feel the wonderful energy, yes, even through the screen.
