Nicole Driscoll; 200 hr Yogaspirit®, LMT, Reiki II
Nicole’s journey of yoga began when she was a Dance major at The University of Massachusetts and during her studies she attended a holistic- healing dance retreat. While she was there, she was introduced to yoga, meditation, and massage as a way to increase flexibility and strength, and also as a way to reduce tension and open up the body in order to become a more dynamic dancer and performer. Through that experience she also began to understand the body’s capacity for self healing both physically and emotionally through yoga and body work. After graduating college and spending 4 years in NYC studying dance and performing, Nicole decided to continue her studies in yoga as well as become a Licensed Massage Therapist and Reiki 2 practitioner. She has been a Licensed MT for 17 years and through her work with her clients relieving their daily stress and injury, she has become more convinced of the power and necessity of yoga. She believes that it is an incredible tool that can be used to heal the body and mind!
Nicole is a graduate of the yogaspirit® 200-hour teacher training program and is currently continuing her studies with workshops and philosophy study groups. Her teaching style promotes a non-competitive and healing atmosphere that focuses on technique, proper form and alignment, and injury prevention. Her yoga styles include flow, form, and restorative. She promotes the use of props and assists to allow the body to relax deeper into the poses. She also adds elements of essential oils, gentle massage, and some meditation to help the students to have a more centered and grounded connection to their body and mind. She wants every student to leave class feeling 100 percent better than when they arrived… feeling revitalized, relaxed, and in tune to their body, mind and spirit!
