Nicole first tried yoga as a former competitive dancer who was looking for a new movement practice. A consistently on-again and off-again practitioner, she dabbled in various yoga classes and styles throughout the years. This exposure fuelled her curiosity to gain a better understanding of the underlying principles of the practice and alignment-based movement.
A Kitchener-Waterloo local, Nicole discovered Queen Street Yoga and enrolled in the Intro to Yoga course as a way to brush up on the fundamentals. This course was a turning point for Nicole, introducing the concepts that she would later explore in more depth as part of QSY’s 2016 teacher training program.
Today, Nicole’s yoga practice is a mix of slow & steady with a hint of vigorous and a healthy dash of finding mountain pose while brushing her teeth, waiting in line at the grocery store, and standing at her dynamic desk at work. Nicole enjoys engaging with students and facilitating a class that accommodates varying needs. Her classes develop at a steady pace with clear cues, and she encourages students to participate at the level that makes sense for them on any given day.
