Detox Yoga and Meditation
Nichole’s yoga journey began here in Miami over a decade ago; inspired by the beautiful views, she was finally able to breathe deep, relax and feel her body. After relocating to LA for work, she began taking yoga classes for exercise and detoxification and as an outlet for stress. When she realized that yoga practice could be a metaphor for life, it inspired her to delve deep. She began exploring different styles of asana and meditation techniques soon after. Eventually, she left her corporate job and followed her dream to become a yoga and meditation teacher. Nichole has never looked back.
Nichole teaches variations of alignment-based vinyasa flow, a fusion of the styles that first inspired me. And she looks for ways to incorporate meditation and breath work techniques into the practice. her classes are reflections of her yogic journey – a mind, body, and soul experience that beginning and advanced practitioners alike can connect to.
She has drawn inspiration from the many teachers, trainings, workshops and classes she had the good fortune to discover all around the world. Some styles include Anusara, Power Yoga, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Kundalini and all kinds of Flow. Her meditation practice has been shaped by various methods and traditions: Vipassana, Vedanta, Bhakti, Breathwork and Yoga Nidra to name a few, and she continues to investigate the many wonderful techniques that can lead us down the road of transformation. But mostly she teaches from the heart, because it’s what she loves!
