Yoga Teacher


Nicola first came to yoga as a 17 year old dancer wanting to improve her flexibility, and soon found it becoming an increasingly important part of her life, helping her to deal with the high pressure environment of dance school and professional auditions. “There was a lot of external pressure and I was always striving for physical strength and unrealistic perfection. Yoga was the one movement outlet which enabled me to escape from this. I fell in love with the psychosomatic element”. Deciding to pursue yoga professionally “came naturally; I felt liberated when teaching it.”

Nowadays, Nicola likes to take a yin / yang approach to classes, integrating body, breath, expressive movement and meditative awareness; whatever best helps her clients feel reconnected with the body. “It’s such a great feeling to help people feel better and more resilient, and able to cope with their day-to-day lives.”
