Niki teaches Slow Flow Yoga


I tried yoga for the first time in 2009 because I was pregnant and knew at some point I’d have to get the baby out. And yoga supported me during my second pregnancy and childbirth. Yoga was a physical practice for me then. When I returned to yoga in 2011, yoga offered something deeper. Yoga was a tool for me to develop a relationship with myself, my breath, my anxiety, my truth. I participated in a beautifully supportive yoga community, which gave me the courage to commit to Vinyasa Flow Level 1 Teacher Training in 2014. Teacher training offered me the opportunity to delve deeper into yoga and its various aspects, which transformed my life in no small way. I found the wholeness yoga encouraged to be deeply healing. I find teachers, like Shiva Rea, Judith Hanson-Lasater, Lizzie Lasater, Sarah Powers, Amy Matthews, Vanda Scaravelli, Catherine Annis and Paul Grilley inspiring but equally I find the students who show up inspiring too.

Niki believes yoga is a way of life. Yoga teaches us about our relationships with ourselves, others and the world around us. Yoga offers tools and insights for physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Yoga helps us to cultivate the habit of awareness. From awareness, we are best placed to know ourselves deeply and to bring consciousness to our responses to life’s joys and challenges.


Niki completed foundational Level 1 Viniyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga Trinity in 2015. Niki broadened her understanding of yoga with post-graduate teacher training at Yoga Trinity, including: Core Yoga Instructor Training, Ayurveda and Yoga and Adjusting, Assisting and Partner Yoga. Niki studied Yin Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher Training with Sarah Owen in 2017. Yin Yoga offers such a beautiful complement to dynamic yoga sequences and practices.While in London from 2018 to 2021, Niki met and studied with Catherine Annis. Catherine’s teachings have been revolutionary for Niki. Niki learned about Vanda Scaravelli, about slowing down and about moving through the whole being in a new way. Niki studied Sanskrit with Lucy Crisfield, Original Wisdom. Niki also studied with Shiva Rea. Through Shiva’s teachings, Niki has learned more about the elemental body, moving with our essential flow and returning to the Self.


Niki’s classes are well-rounded, creative vinyasa flow yoga. We start by slowing down to observe the body and mind. With delicate awareness we connect with the breath. Then gently continue by moving through a series of warm ups to feel into the body. We move through a few rounds of Mandala Namaskar, a circular pattern of flowing movements, or practise Surya Namaskar, Sun Salutations, to build strength, heat and focus. Once the hard work is complete, we slow down to stretch and release. Our final pose, Savasana, is a quiet moment to receive the benefits of practice. Niki’s classes offer several intensity levels and many options, which means all bodies, from beginners to more experienced students, are welcome to adapt the practice to their moment-by-moment needs. Niki also teaches slower yoga styles, including slow flow, yin and restorative yoga.
