Nikki discovered yoga and meditation shortly after the birth of her son approximately 12 years ago as a way of reconnecting with her body, mind and spirit. The practice of yoga intrigued and inspired Nikki to receive her 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification from Alignment Yoga in Madison, WI in 2015 and received additional training in chair yoga form Kripalu School of Yoga in Stockbridge, MA from Lakshmi Volker in 2016. Nikki has attended numerous yoga conferences and has practiced with various teachers throughout the US. She will continue her yoga studies in March of 2018 at YogaOne Studio in Cedarburg, WI to receive her 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification, as well as travel abroad in October 2018 to New Delhi, India to continue studies in mediation, yoga and kirtan. Nikki strives to bring her humor and energy into her classes and works to create a combination for dynamic but mindful movement accessible to all students.
