In the early years, asana was the main ingredient of Nikki’s practice. Her studies with Pattabhi Jois in India set her on a course of a daily vigorous practice as well as towards her first teacher training with Sarah Powers and Erich Schiffmann. The Ashtanga practice sustained her interest and provided the foundation for what was to come. Her thirst for deeper teachings lead her to Rod Styker and the path of Tantra. She currently studies with Professor Vinod Nath, a yogi of the Khapar Dhari Nath yoga lineage. This family lineage dates back hundreds of years in India and includes tantra, dakini, mahavidya and bhairav tantra yoga.
Nikki has more than 20 years teaching experience and has been leading 200 and 300-hour teaching trainings for more than 12 years. She is 500 E-RYT and was Director of Trainer Development for YogaWorks for more than 7 years where she supported and mentored teacher trainers. She leads intensives, immersions, and workshop series in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Most importantly, she is happy.
