Nikki Hayes ~ RYT 200, B.S. Ed

My mission is to provide a serene, safe, and welcoming environment for people of all ages, sizes, shapes, and abilities in order to bring greater health, happiness, and well-being into the lives of those in my community.

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.

When I'm not teaching yoga, you'll find me working with honeybees. My husband, Danny, and I established a 501c3 non-profit educational organization and honeybee sanctuary in 2013. All pollinators should be cherished and celebrated and we teach this in our educational center for families & children. I am a 2004 graduate of Peru State College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education, and my RYT 200 yoga certification was earned through Lighthouse Yoga in Omaha, Nebraska. I am currently pursuing my 500 hour certification. Danny and I have been married for 18 years and have three children ages 17, 13, and 11.
