Like many of her great teachers, Nikki’s yoga journey has taken her throughout the United States. From developing her own personal practice during college to her time as a fashion buyer in New York City, Nikki desired to explore the deeper aspects of yoga. By showing up on her mat and allowing there to be space, the true gifts of the practice were revealed to her. Nikki’s practice has enabled her to find the strength and balance to persevere through life’s challenges.

Nikki has been practicing yoga for fifteen years and teaching for over five years. She has completed two intensive teacher trainings, a 200-hour program at Sanctuary for Yoga, Body & Spirit and the second, a 300-hour program at Ritam Healing Arts. In addition to her dual certifications, Nikki has over 1,300 hours of teaching experience. She continues to deepen her practice by traveling to California and India, to immerse herself in practice of yoga.

Nikki specializes in teaching Gentle Yoga, a unique blend of Hatha and Vinyasa, and Restorative Yoga. She currently resides in Alexandria, VA where she shares her teachings through a weekly class, private classes and seasonal workshops. Nikki is the founder and maker of Nourish & Refine, a line of all-natural and conscious products.

Nikki is known for her warm heart and incredible ability to guide her students through their own personal practice. If she could provide just one verse to others, Nikki hopes you find that single force in life that inspires you to be your best self each and every day.  Just like yoga, life is a practice, and even during our most challenging times, we can always come back to our mat and start anew.
