“Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are a hundred ways to kneel and kiss the ground.” ~Rumi
Nicole learned to read and balance chakras at the same time she was learning to tie her shoes. The spiritual realm has always been a part of her life. Raised around yogis, healers, and wild women, Nicole has a strong background in all things Sacred.
Kundalini Yoga was a natural fit when she discovered it in 2003. It took all her childhood learning and training to another level. It was here she experienced all the trauma and drama melt away from her nervous system. She felt the “kiss of Spirit on the body”. Nicole now dedicates her life to celebrating what is sacred (everything) and helping others reclaim and reconnect with that sacredness within them, cell by beautiful cell.
Her offerings are filled with the heart, passion, and joy of someone who has truly come alive. She delights in lovingly coaxing people to the edge of their comfortable cages and feeling them leap into uncharted territories of expansion, joy, and creative flow. Her classes combine deep grounding with cosmic expansion, the physical and the infinite, laughter and deep reverence.
Nicole lives in Minneapolis where she worships the moon and talks to trees.

Above all, I am guided by the One who lives within, the One who pours all wisdom. Most of my greatest teachers live between the worlds, and this is how it should be.Source: oceanforestecolodge.secure.retreat.guru
