Nicole has been a meditation and yoga practitioner for over 15 years. Her meditation and mindfulness experience is extensive, as she has been studying very closely with her main teachers, and others for over 13 years. This study involves close contact with the teacher on a regular basis, service work (karma yoga), personal and philosophical instruction from the teacher, and extensive retreat work. As well as her yoga practice and study, she has a daily hourly meditation practice and has participated in 2 week to 1 month long silent retreats once or twice a year for the last 13 years. Her greatest passion is to introduce students to the ‘true heart’ of yoga through its deeper aspects of meditation and mindfulness practice.
This is a wonderful and precious opportunity to get away from everything, have some quiet reflective time for yourself, and deepen your practice with a supportive community, in a setting where others have been practicing for thousands of years. Hope you can join us!
