Nicole led a workshop for our advanced Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Training course on Mental Health and Addictions. She taught with incredible energy, knowledge and commitment to the students and the subject. Every evaluation form from our students asked for more of Nicole! Nicole has the rare gift of captivating a group with stories and real life experience, using humor and compassion. We are lucky to have her as part of the Ajna Yoga faculty.”
