Yoga @Work

Since most job sites don’t offer designated nap times and smoke breaks are so 2001, imagine having a Yoga Happy Hour in the conference room. It’s the best next alternative!

Testimonial

You will float out of the room!

An expert at safely guiding you into and out of poses, Niki offers optional modifications if you need them, and encourages you to go deeper if you're ready. She opens her class with a guided introduction to the breath, which sets a wonderful meditative foundation for the practice. If you're a more advanced practitioner, this class allows you to back off and go into deeper exploration of breath and body, perhaps illuminating certain habits and tendencies that have crept into your practice.

If you're coming back from an injury, Niki is quick to give you options and help in every pose. And, most important, if you are pretty new to yoga she will help you begin to understand your body and the poses with the right attention to alignment so you'll be ready to move into more challenging asana (should you choose to) in a safe way that makes sense in your body. Better not to develop those bad habits in the first place.

I am most impressed by how she is able to weave the breath, key yogic concepts, and alignment without making you feel overloaded. If she is using Sanskrit (ancient language of yoga) she always follows up with the English translation or explains why you're doing something in a certain way. This is good foundational yoga!

On top of that, her background in clinical psychology ensures a sense of safety and security in class. She is committed to giving her students a healing and therapeutic experience. You will float out of the room!
