Nischalã Lindsay Johnson- Yoga Therapist, Facilitator, Light Worker
Nischalã is a lifelong Lover, Seeker, Student, Artist and Writer who has been practicing yoga for 12 years and working with Plant Medicines for over a decade. She was led to yoga in her early 20’s, seeking a way back to her Self and out of deep depression and alcholism . The disciplines of yoga gave her a path back to her Heart, a connection to the Wisdom of the body, and the realization of the importance of Honoring Life as Sacred. Through purification practices of breathwork, meditation, yoga postures, mudras, sacred song, sacred dance and spiritual study she rediscovered her BodyMind as an instrument that is designed to be tuned in to the Divine Source and Mother Earth. The disciplines of yoga provide us with tools to bring stillness to the mind so that we may rise beyond human consciousness and into Cosmic Consciousness: the Highest and Purest Vibration which is LOVE. By learning how to efficiently operate and purify the Sacred BodyMind Instrument we are able to expand our sense of awareness to encompass the more subtle aspects of our Divine Being and the Universe. Nischalã beleives strongly that True Healing requires a Holistic approach.
In addition to her yoga practice, Nischalã has been working with Sacred Plant Medicines for over ten years. Working with Plant Medicines has opened her up to an even deeper awareness and exploration of consciousness, spirituality, assisted in the healing of her body, heart & mind, provided a deeper connection with Mother Earth & Great Spirit, and has given her a more intimate and active understanding of the Nature of the Universe and how to work on a deeper level with Prana (the vital life force energy). Six years into her yoga practice she was certified in Hatha Yoga and Meditation at Holy Cow Yoga Center in Charleston, SC in 2011 and began her teaching journey. Once training was over she realized how much of her lifestyle was imposed and not in alignment with her Heart and Soul. So, in the Spring of 2012 she let go of her life as it was and followed her Heart out West to study sustainable living and to continue her focus on holistic healing. Fate led her to Los Gatos, California where she spent 9 months at Wind Tree, an Organic Farm, Healing Retreat Center and Native American Ceremony Ground. It was here she learned of Ayahuasca and shortly after was offered to sit in Ceremony by a trusted friend. Working with Ayahuasca led her to powerful, profound and direct avenues to face, move through, cope with and heal from deep emotional trauma that her spiritual disciplines had not able to access. Ayahuasca deepend her abilty to Remember and Embrace the Beauty, Power and Necessity of Communion with with Mother Earth and the Divine Source Creator. Her Trust in and Union with The Great Spirit dove to a much deeper level and she gained the the confidence and faith to continue on her Path of leading others back to their Hearts in order to empower others to lead lives in alignment with their own Hearts and Souls.
She returned home to Charleston, South Carolina in 2013, when her teaching expanded to working with children. She was certified to share yoga with children through Kids Yogaverse and began working with a unique nonprofit called Wings for Kids. Wings for Kids is a powerfully positive organization with a focus on emotional and social awareness that Nishcalã Lindsay feels Blessed and Honored to have worked with for 3 years. In order to share her Spiritual practices and beliefs on a deeper level Nischalã also began leading Yoga Retreats in 2014 to Sacred Destinations such as Lake Atitlan, Guatemala and Sedona, Arizona. Nischalã is deeply passionate about the importance of healing and nourishing our relationship with inner child. She is equally passionate about embracing, integrating and balancing the Divine Feminine Aspect of our selves with the Divine Masculine, acknowledging that the essence of our beings consist of both. She believes in the necessity of emotional intelligence and healthy emotional expression as vital communication channels for Spirit to move and work through us.
