Nicole Lynn Hooley

About The Teacher

Brooklyn based Yoga Instructor & Reiki Master, Nicole Hooley specializes in teaching Personal Empowerment & Self Healing inspired Yoga Classes, Workshops, Trainings & Retreats. Her Reiki & Intuitive Healing sessions have been called “an hour of unconditional love”.  Nicole has been highlighted by Huffington Post and YogaCityNYC.

Nicole’s offerings come from her connection to source. She takes from her Reiki practice, her life long astrological education, her background in eco-feminism, philosophy & religion, years of teaching yoga asana, a foundational understanding Ayurvedic Food Science and Chinese medicine, as well as her intuitive wisdom. Her goal is to create a sense of self-reliance in all of her students and clients. She wants to awaken the natural healing & self-empowerment process in as many people as she is blessed to work with. She believes in being guided by a personal awareness of subtle energy and does not follow any particular dogma or creed other than that which has organically risen from direct life experience. She believes that this process allows for one to live from a place of personal awareness and accountability, without harboring unnecessary shame and guilt.

Nicole’s intention as a healing guide is to assist in releasing ancestral wounding and lifetime conditioning. Her goal is that through this subtle work, she and those who work with her can live their best lives and pass their blessings forward to those they love, the world and future generations.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
