NICOLE G.

Yoga Coach

Nicole grew up near Pittsburgh, PA and lives with her husband and 2 children in Westwood, NJ. Nicole’s yoga journey started in 2004. Originally starting her practice to support her physical health, she quickly realized it was the mental aspect and true mind, body connection that drew her in. The mat became a place where she was able to calm her mind and she found peace. Nicole became a certified instructor specializing in mental health, trauma, chair and children’s yoga. She is also a certified Reiki Master and shares her practice in hopes of helping others heal, find peace and acceptance within themselves and shine more love and light into the world.
