Bikram Yoga Boise
Nicole was born and raised on a farm in Caldwell, Idaho where she attended grades K-12, as well as her first year of college at College of Idaho. She transferred to Linfield College to study Finance and Economics and to play college softball. Upon graduation in June 2002, Nicole returned to live in Boise, where she still resides.
After a few years of exploring different jobs and career avenues, Nicole found her love, her passion, in Yoga....specifically Bikram Yoga. After years of being an athlete, many hours in the gym, Nicole found great solitude, peace, and well-being in her yoga practice. Not only did she find all of this, due to consistent efforts with her practice, she was able to rid herself of all chronic back pain that had stemmed from a car accident. No longer living with back pain, finding new peace, strength and vitality from the inside out, Nicole knew it was time to become a teacher and spread what she had found. To be part of the cure and not the disease. One year after beginning her Bikram Yoga practice, Nicole went to Teacher Training for 9 weeks in Palm Desert, to study with Bikram, his wife Rajashree and his senior staff. She graduated in June 2009 and has been teaching this therapeutic hatha yoga series at both Boise studios for the past two years.
It is with great joy and honor that she has been able to teach hundreds of students this yoga, to help them find the path to self realization, to believe in themselves, to heal their bodies, create a harmonious body/mind/spirit connection and to make the world a better place one more yogi at a time! She recently started a kids yoga class, and is having so much fun guiding them in creating the body-mind connection, as well as bringing awareness to parents and their children about making yoga a lifestyle choice at an early age.
