This was my first yoga session, EVER! I never would have dared do that in a room of experienced people, but found so much comfort in the live Zoom version of class! Your instructions were easy to follow and I appreciated your continued posture reminders while in-pose to keep a true, day-one beginner focused and encouraged to see it through all the way. Seeing my classmates with videos on helped tremendously too. Thank you, Mia!
Nicole started practicing Bikram Yoga in 2008 while she was in graduate school for Opera Performance. She found that yoga offered her a way to connect to her body and her breathing that was incredibly helpful for her singing. Over the years, she stopped going to class from time to time, but always felt the pull of the hot room and she would find herself back in the heat before too long. Around 2014 she realized that a regular practice made her feel more like herself, both mentally and physically. Since then she has worked on making her practice a priority. Nicole attended 105f's teacher training in the fall of 2017 in her beloved city of Chicago. Nicole also teaches private voice and piano lessons. She feels that teaching is an important part of who she is and she thrives on finding ways to explain difficult concepts in easy to understand terms.
