A California native, Nikki grew up in the horse world, riding, training hunter/jumpers and dressage. A middle school science teacher, Nikki found her way to the yoga community in search of a way to relieve stress. She fell in love with mental and physical challenge she found in Ashtanga. After developing her own practice, Nikki attended Birmingham Yoga’s Yoga Teacher Training in 2016 focusing on Ashtanga and Kundalini yoga. Now certified, her mission is to encourage others to develop a personal relationship with yoga, and find their own expression and joy in it as she did.
