Nichol started practicing yoga at a very pivotal moment in her life. She was pursuing a career as an Opera Singer, and had even planned on attending San Francisco Conservatory for graduate studies in vocal performance. About a month before she was set to move to San Francisco, she came to the painstaking realization that this was not what she wanted to do with her life. Ironically, she had not been in touch with her own desires; her own voice. Feeling lost and searching for answers, she came back to something she had dedicated a great deal of time to growing up — dance. One of her dance teachers inspired her to take her first yoga class and she was immediately taken with it. The more she practiced yoga, the more empowered she felt. Gradually, practice by practice, she began to hear her own voice. This is why Nichol wants nothing more than to inspire and empower others through teaching them yoga.
Nichol feels very fortunate to have trained with three of the most accomplished yoga teachers in the field today: Darren Rhodes, Christina Sell and Noah Mazé. And, like her teachers, her influences are vast and eclectic. She has extensive experience with Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, and Bikram yoga. Her classes are well informed, intuitive, precise and fun! She hopes to see you on the mat soon.
