Nikki Hayes ~ RYT 200 , B.S. Ed

My calling to become a yoga instructor came after years of working closely with the environment. The Earth has been my greatest teacher of all and I honor all she has given me through my service as a yoga teacher. Yoga is about energy and movement. Through holding various poses we calm the mind, engage the body, and awaken the spirit. I enjoy practicing all types of yoga and find that a thoughtful balance of all the various styles is a wonderful way to combine peace and fun into my journey as both teacher and student of yoga.
