Nikki Martin (She/Her)

"Yoga has taught me to explore, to laugh after I stumble or fall, and then pick myself up again.  It has taught me to push myself and not let fear dictate my path.  It has allowed me to be gentle and kind to myself, and it reminds me, always, to live with authenticity and passion.”

Nikki is a 200hr E-RYT yoga teacher who has been teaching at various studios in the HRM for the last 4 years. She has completed a 50hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training as well as having assisted a full 200hr Teacher Training. As a teacher she has become passionate about providing space, permission and guidance for her students to connect with and listen to their own bodies and what they might need in the moment while still challenging them to step into, or out of, discomfort when it serves. To that compassionate teaching style she adds her love of fiery and challenging vinyasa yoga, arm balances and playful transitions, and the time and space to land, experience the breath and be present in the body despite the distractions of the mind.

She is a full time yoga teacher, Lululemon Ambassador, and a writer having just released her first fictional novel and that creative side often shows up in her classes and what she speaks to and offers.
