About Nicki: Although rooted in Ashtanga, Nicki‘s teaching goes beyond the traditional. Her Vinyasa classes combine asana, pranayama, philosophy, and poetry. Nicki’s emphasis is on awareness: creating integrity within each pose that can be carried beyond the mat into daily life. Nicki strives to teach each student that yoga is about being fully present in the moment and discovering that we are truly all One: One Love, One People, One Heart, One Destination – Our Higher Self.

*Detailed Class Descriptions:
THURSDAY MORNING- 6pm-8pm Feet, Hips & Knees-
FRIDAY MORNING- 9am-Noon Maya Yoga Vinyasa Flow-This is a strong dynamic yoga class that incorporates all aspects of Maya Yoga including asana, pranayama, chanting, meditation, prayer, and deep relaxation, to leave you feeling recharged and inspired about your practice. Nicki likes to start the class slowly with poses that support the parasympathetic nervous system and then move slowly into seated chanting and pranayama. From there we will wake the body from the ground up, starting at the feet and moving through the legs, trunk, arms, and head. Sun salutations will be practiced to build internal heat and establish the harmonious flow of breath and movement known as “Vinyasa”. Standing poses are linked with the sun salutations to create the dynamic flow that is both detoxifying and rejuvenating. What happens from there is organic and may include backbends, forward bends, arm balances, inversions or hip openers depending on the students and the energy of the day. The end of the class will bring you back to yourself and leave you feeling more centered and grounded, especially after a long savasana with Nicki reading poetry to you.
FRIDAY EVENING- 6pm-8pm Head, Neck and Shoulders
So many of us hold a tremendous amount of tension in our heads, neck and shoulders. Learn how to open these areas of your body safely through aa series of yoga poses designed to address these critical zones in your body. Especially here in Hawaii where so many people surf and do water sports, there is a lot of tightness and stress in the neck, upper back and shoulders. Nicki will teach you poses that can help in receiving some of that stress in your upper body. This class will include Sarvangasana ( shoulder stand) with the awesome yoga gym mats at the Sunset Beach rec center! This is a class that can benefit everyone from beginners to advanced students and is open to all. We will use yoga props as necessary.
SATURDAY MORNING 9am-Noon With Faith Comes Courage – A Yoga Practice to Build Confidence and Grace
SATURDAY AFTERNOON-2pm-5pm Adjustments for Yoga Teachers (all students are welcome, you do not have to be a teacher).
