About the Instructor:
Nicole was first introduced to yoga while working as a substance abuse counselor to San Francisco’s incarcerated and homeless population. She saw firsthand the powerful healing effects yoga had on her clients. After becoming a dedicated practitioner herself, she wanted to be able to share the practice of yoga with others. Nicole took her 200 hour teacher training, in 2012, with Master Teacher Alice Riccardi. She went on to study Yin Yoga under Josh Summers, Restorative Yoga under Margo Rosingana, Yoga Nidra with the Shiva Shakti School of Yoga and is also a certified children’s yoga teacher, chair yoga teacher, Reiki practitioner and Integrative Energy Healer.
Since 2016, Nicole has also trained extensively in trauma informed yoga. This has influenced her approach to teaching tremendously. Nicole’s classes are led in an inviting manner. Her philosophy is that when you come to your mats, it is your practice, your body and you hold the wisdom to what is appropriate for you and your body. You are invited to listen to your breath and the sensations in your bodies and to move from that space.
When not teaching yoga or taking a class, Nicole is the Wellness Director at Portland Community Squash. She lives in Portland with her girlfriend, two teenage children and two puppies.
