HEAD YOGA INSTRUCTOR
Nicki has been in love with movement of the body since she was a young girl. She was a ballet and Jazz dancer as a kid and dancing actually became her full time career. Nicki started her yoga journey in 2004 when she was recovering from a dance injury and could not perform. Her mom suggested she try a yoga class and the rest is history. She used the yoga as her rehabilitation and has never looked back. She instantly fell in love with the effects of the practice and noticed the positive benefits not only physically, but yogic philosophy became her lifestyle.
Nicki’s yoga background includes Annie Carpenters Smart Flow, Vinyasa Flow, Yin, Restorative and more. Nicki is certified in Trauma recovery yoga as well as Pilates and Bootcamp. With over 1,000 hours of training experience, and over 5,000 hours of teaching experience, she and her yoga partner Kelsey Sellman now lead 200 RYT trainings with their school The Mojave Yoga Collective. When Nicki is not doing yoga, she dives deeper into meditation, reading, journaling, and is in love with self study or “self work”. She attends 10 day vipassana retreats, and loves to continue to learn. Something you might not know about Nicki is that she completed her first 200 RYT training with her mom and her brother.
Some of her influences are Alan Watts, Abraham Hicks, Eckhart Tolle, Paul Selig and for a good laugh JP sears.
