I am fortunate to have practiced yoga around the world for nearly a decade now.
The yoga journey is a continual one, but last year I found the courage to follow a lifelong dream - leave my job in London, become a Yoga Teacher, and move to a new country....
So here we are - my husband, daughter and I relocated from London to Boulder, and I now teach Yoga at my home in Downtown Boulder - see 'Classes' section below.
Yoga & Meditation have quite literally ‘allowed’ me to be more grateful, more grounded and most importantly a happier person. It might sound like a cliché, but how can I not help others discover these awesome life changing paths?
So this is what I do now. It’s a whole world of discovery - all leading to:
- Improved Health
- Improved Sleep
- Flexibility & Mobility
- Improved Emotional Health
- Mental Clarity
- Improved Circulation
...and I have my own unique English ways of opening those doors!
(The longer version of 'About Me' if you're interested...)
Some shots from recent Boulder life...
I teach Vinyasa Flow Yoga - a dynamic practice allowing a natural flow of movement to develop through 'moving meditation'.
I teach a flow which allows you to come away from an overactive mind, and help you establish a healthier relationship with your body, strengthening your muscles, working on postural alignment and balancing your energy so you are better able to cope with life’s stresses.
I start classes with a Dharma Talk - these bring a wonderful opportunity to practice mindfulness and meditation - even if you are completely new to it. My classes and talks will inspire your inner energy, build strength, stamina and flexibility, and challenge you to find and hold your centre. It is a wonderful feeling - trust me! The practice will likely be different for you each time, bringing up different emotions and thoughts, but either way, the practice has the ability to both ground you and lighten you depending on the demands of your life at any given time.
My style caters for those who want the benefits of a physical practice, while also creating an environment for a calmer mind with meditation and breathwork woven in. I think it’s important that after a practice such as Vinyasa Flow there is time to restore, and reconnect to your inner-self, so I build in some Yin postures and meditation at the end of classes too.
Everyone has a 'first' yoga class, and I pride myself on being able to take you on your continued journey...
Rio de Janeiro
“As a Mama of a busy toddler, it’s hard to slow down and give my body the movement it needs for optimal health. It was a treat to take time in the morning to pause in the lovely space Niki has created. Amidst the subtle aroma of essential oils and Niki’s gentle encouragement, by body and mind were rejuvenated and refreshed. I encourage Mama’s to carve out this time for yourself, even once a week!”
Genevieve Doll, Natural Chef
“My weekly classes with Niki are my time to reconnect from the constant pace of London life. She has knowledge of the postures right through to meditation, relaxation and spiritual practices; she weaves in knowledge about how the postures are serving your body which I find greatly helpful, giving me focus and allowing me to know how my body is benefiting from the practice as well as my mind.”
Laura Beck, Founder Pickle & Fizz
"I would highly recommend Niki as a yoga teacher. She is calm and articulate in all aspects of her direction. Niki clearly cares about your overall experience and strives to help you achieve the best out of every session. Her passion for a healthy mind and body is inspirational and makes you want to go back for more. Don’t be afraid if you’ve never done yoga before, you are never too old to start."
Hannah Moore, Specialist Physiotherapist
“My yoga practices with Niki have been inspiring, refreshing, challenging and fun. She is generous in both her teaching, and mentorship, and ensures the whole class get the most out of the practice. I like her educational yet relaxed style and have learnt a great deal about myself as well as the postures themselves. Her classes are inclusive and welcoming to all levels - I would highly recommend her for beginners looking to start their yoga journey, through to experienced yogis looking to refresh and develop their practice.”
Kim Rhodes, Business Director, Havas Sports and Entertainment
“Niki is able to deliver the whole yoga package - she ties in the Chakras, postures, breathwork, and her Dharma talks truly allow me to personally interpret what is going on for me on the day. She has a way of making me realise I need to achieve confidence in myself by exercising my body together with focusing my mind, and how it reflects the way I'm interacting with the world. I feel refreshed and rejuvenated after my sessions with Niki, and I hope I can continue to develop my skills with her sensitive guidance"
Kathy Watters, Belfast City Council
“I’ve been attending Niki’s weekly classes for a few months now, and as yoga was totally new to me I am so thankful for the calm introduction Niki has given me. She always offers me with alternative postures which allow me to start to open up my body after some long-term injuries.”
Angela Spirit, Skills for Care
"Being an incredibly inflexible male I always assumed that I wouldn’t be able to do yoga. Niki has taught me that yoga is more about understanding what I feel in a posture as opposed to simply trying to replicating what a posture looks like. After several sessions I really noticed that my body was more open and my mind clearer. Thank you Niki!"
