London, United KingdomJivamukti YogaNicole is a certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher from Switzerland. Her playlist is just as eclectic as her roots: Nicole is the daughter of a Greek / Hungarian mother and a Swiss / Dutch father, and she aims to implement those different cultures into her teaching. Nicole believes that yoga can unite body & soul but it can also bridge different cultures and languages.
Nicole started practicing yoga as a means to strengthen her neck & back after a series of back injuries she had sustained over a period of 15 years:
From a snowboarding accident in the Swiss Alps, a boating accident on the Turkish coast, to a motorbike accident in Greece: her back had been severely injured. Numerous therapies followed, but nothing seemed to help. A series of fortunate events then took her to London where she started practicing yoga. What she found during the classes was much more than she could ever have hoped for.
Not only did the yoga practice strengthen her back, but she also found inner strength & peace through her asana practice, and that is what Nicole strives to pass on in her classes.
Her assists are gentle but forceful and very much inspired by her mentor, Lady Ruth.
