Her aim is always to share joy in the simplicity of moving the body freely and feeling the breath and she believes that anyone can do yoga and benefit from it. Having been teaching a long time, she feels that the most important aspect of her teaching is in ensuring that she always remains a student, always learning.

As a creative writing teacher, she also incorporates journaling and writing into her workshops. Nikkie teaches yoga trapeze and has qualified with Shiva Rea to teach prana flow yoga, which integrates yoga and free form dance. She has also completed the Michael Stone certificate in teaching meditation with YogaCampus and Yoga Alliance. She values the deep transformative effect of meditation and its ability to create steadiness in the face of life’s challenges.
