Nikki finds herself drawn to the path of yoga to cultivate Self-knowledge, connection and expansion as she persistently works on living her life through the lens of the heart.
Drawn to the purifying fire and strength of asana, the revitalizing practice of pranayama and meditation, and the playful joy of Bhakti, Nikki is known for her strong, transformative, devotional and compassionate teaching style that focuses on stabilizing the body, breath and mind. Her guidance empowers the students to cultivate prana (power or life-force) and supports the students in the process of burning through any limitations that may prevent the experience of trust, joy and sacredness in all things.
Passion and infinite curiosity for exploring Eastern philosophy, and the science of yoga drives Nikki to share these ancient healing and transformative teachings with others who feel drawn to these also.
Mia first found yoga as a full-time ballet dancer at a
performing arts school. Some days Mia found that she enjoyed yoga
more than ballet itself. As a ballet dancer, you are told to stand
behind the person you want to be better than and to be better than
you were the day before. This encouraged improvement, however it
can bring up negative thoughts about yourself.
In yoga, you are moving in a way that benefits your body that day. Listening to the body and how it's telling us to move. The goal may be to improve but it does not matter if you don't. In yoga, you move in a way that reflects how the body is feeling in that moment. It is all about living in the present rather than obsessing over your next goal for the future.
Alongside teaching and managing Connect The Dots, Mia also teaches yoga and dance to people of all ages, is a disability support worker and a preschool entertainer. Mia is currently also at uni studying primary school teaching. In her busy life, Mia is always able to come back to stillness and quietness on her mat.
Mia is always participating in teacher trainings and is continuously deepening her yoga practice on and off the mat.
