TESTIMONIALS

“Nicole is the medicine you didn’t know you needed.

Her energy, wisdom and big heart were hard won and she generously shares it with others without losing herself. An excellent model for a way of living and being in the world. I’d never laid eyes on her until I showed up for a week retreat and I got more than my moneys worth. I felt challenged on many levels and I knew I was in good hands from the word go. Thank you for providing the perfect practice, balance and encouragement for what I was needing. I found my way back to myself during this retreat. Thank you!!”

“It was my first time going to a yoga retreat, and I was not sure what to expect. But I knew the fact that Nicole was organizing it, it could only be great!

Being taught yoga by Nicole is hard to explain with words. You can feel that she has so much love and passion about yoga that it is echoing through her teachings. You feel all the positive and comforting energy she has, and her love of life and joy are contagious. Nicole’s sequencing is always prepared with care and with an objective to surpass yourself or, like she puts it, lean into your edges! She also has the best choice of music to go along the sequences!

During the retreat, she had many questions to help learn more about ourselves to begin on a journey of self-love and happiness. She was always there to listen, to talk with or give encouragements through the week. You can see that she truly wants everyone to find their joy in life like she did!

The retreat in Croatia was AMAZING. The food was great (all those delicious meals prepared for us every day), the island was gorgeous (beautiful beaches, crystal clear water, wonderful view from the villa) and the yoga practice was so much more than I thought it would be! The best part was sharing all of that and connecting with wonderful people! Thank you for being an inspiration for everyone. You are an amazing human being with so much love and compassion!”

“This was my first retreat ever and all I can say is Nicole you are AMAZING! The destination was beautiful Croatia ! I could not have asked for a better week filled with exciting adventures ! We practiced yoga twice a day , ate like champs ( the vegetarian meals were delicious ), experienced the breathtaking blue cave , explored their beautiful beaches , indulged in their famous grilled octopus all while making meaningful and lasting friendships. Throughout the week, Nicole would ask us many questions that we got to reflect upon. I learnt so much about myself through these intimate and soul searching questions. Nicole’s positive and electrifying energy as well as her ability to make everyone around her fall in love with the art of yoga ( just watch her !) make her in my books a master of her work! Thank you so much Nicole for truly allowing me to lean into my edges and discovering that there is a lot of yumminess inside!”
