Teach Inclusive + Mindful Yoga!
At Bella Yoga, we know that there is a myriad of reasons why people begin a yoga practice, all of them deeply personal. With that understanding, it is our intention to share our passion for yoga with the community by providing a warm, safe, inclusive environment to develop the tools needed to incorporate yoga into everyday life. We also know that sometimes, as one’s practice grows, the desire to learn even more, dive deeper, and share this profound practice with others begins to awaken. This is when it is time to explore a Yoga Teacher Training Program.

In this fast-paced world, Niki increasingly sees the need to slow down and to appreciate the present. We spend a lot of time reminiscing and looking ahead but not much time in the here and now. In her teachings, she gives you the opportunity to do just that. To experience the breath, our life force, and how our breath can help to guide our bodies into movement, into meditation and into stillness.
Her foundational 200-hour training was Integrative Yoga Therapy. An approach which took a number of different styles of yoga, and developed them into a gentle approach, with accessibility in mind for everyone. Since that time, Niki has completed a comprehensive prenatal teacher training. Niki is RYT-500 with continuing studies in the field of Yoga Therapy which will help her to provide a holistic approach to many challenges and illness we face today, using the methodology of yoga to assess and support.
