Registered Yoga Teacher
Nicole was born and raised in rural southern Ohio, where her Appalachian roots fostered a love for learning and creating, a respect for nature, an appreciation for simplicity, and a strong faith in God. Initially drawn to yoga for physical healing, she soon experienced a deeper practice that resonated with those roots. Yoga became a valuable tool for connecting and enriching her mental and physical wellness, and because of the impact, she chose to deepen her knowledge of yoga in order to share the benefits with others.
Nicole has completed a 200-hour teacher training at Yoga Landing in Chattanooga, TN, under the instruction of Jessica Jollie, and has received RYT-200 status with the Yoga Alliance, of which she is also a registered instructor. Additionally, Nicole has studied through continuing education workshops in the areas of Yin yoga, Ashtanga yoga, Pranayama, Self-Alignment, and Yoga Anatomy. She also holds certifications as a Level-1 Certified CrossFit Coach and certified CrossFit Endurance Coach.
