About The Teacher

Niki Saccareccia, E500, teaches to empower others to be the main agent of positive change in their lives by reconnecting to the inner healing intelligence that tends to get buried under responsibility. She does this by facilitating first-hand experience of true relaxation and complete mental focus. Her background as a Clinical Behavior Therapist makes her teachings accessible to everyone, without watering down the timeless wisdom of yoga's rich technology. She leads classes, workshops and trainings around California that create an embodied experience of our one true nature: relaxation, strength and focus. Niki is deliberately practical: Students learn about their anatomy and the mentality moving them from one action to the next, while cultivating a deep sense of presence and support. She focuses on breath-based physical alignment and then blends the sacred philosophy of yoga's holistic teachings into the physical experience. Her habit-changing yoga practices have been featured on (contact info blocked), (contact info blocked), Sivana East, We.Travel and (contact info blocked), at rehabilitation centers around Los Angeles County, and at lifestyle festivals in Oregon and California. Niki has a down-to-earth approach that has gained her the reputation of “bringing the important, mental health of yoga into a physical practice.” Her mission is to guide students to realize how incredibly powerful they are, to discover the light inside!
