Every morning that I practice yoga at Spirit of the Lake is a better day! After trying 3 other yoga studios, I knew the first time I attended class here that this was the place for me. The atmosphere, the quality of teachers, the feeling of community and the variety of classes and workshops are what keep me coming back. Thank you!
Nicole Lovald is a Certified Yoga Instructor and Life/Wellness Coach with a Master's degree in Counseling. She has spent over 15 years working in higher education, social services, non-profit, and for-profit settings. Her love of yoga began many years ago when her husband was deployed and she was looking for a self-care practice to ease her worried mind and untangle the stress induced knots in her body.
What she found was that yoga provided amazing benefits that not only impacted her body but also relaxed her mind and allowed her to get in touch with her inner spirit. After realizing the wonderful benefits of her practice, she decided to embark on a yoga teacher training program so that she would be able to bring it to others. She has now been teaching yoga for over 4 years and is thrilled to be able to help others live healthier and happier lives.
As the new owner of Spirit of the Lake Yoga and Wellness Center, Nicole is excited to continue to support the Excelsior and surrounding communities. In addition to teaching several classes at Spirit of the Lake she also provides individual wellness and life coaching sessions.
Nicole lives in Shorewood with her husband and two kids, who bring her constant smiles. She enjoys running, spending time on the lake, gardening, and hanging out with all the great people she is blessed to have in her life.
