Instructor Nicole has been practicing yoga for more than 10 years. Her studies led her to a dynamic Hatha style of yoga that focuses on internal and external alignment. As she shares the physical and emotional benefits of yoga practice, she encourages her students with her inclusive and sociable personality, cultivating a family-like environment within the studio. At Ann Arbor, classes are held inside a classical studio built in the 1800s, characterized by maple floors, exposed brick, and high ceilings.
When she isn’t teaching at the studio, she can be found spending time with the young women at Vista Maria, a center that houses 160 girls aged 11–18 who have been removed from their homes because of violence, neglect, or trauma. Here, Nicole works to inspire the youths with yogic breathing and journaling classes.
