TESTIMONIALS

"I have been taking private yoga lessons with Nicole for the past 18 months or so. I’m a physician and 51 years of age. Even though I started my yoga lessons a bit late in my life I feel much younger and energetic since I started doing yoga on a consistent basis with Nicole. She is the best yoga teacher I have ever had. We are now a group of women who look forward to our weekly or biweekly lessons with Nicole.  I have worked out most of my adult life, yoga has had the maximum ROI in my life. 

Nicole is very patient and customizes her lessons based on our needs that day. She is very knowledgeable and I love the fact that she explains everything to me at an anatomical level. 
Even my kids look forward to Nicole’s lessons when they are in town
Without a doubt, Nicole is one of the few people in my life who makes a big difference. 
I have recommended her lessons to some of my patients. We even have her on our office YouTube channel"

"I highly recommend Nicole's meditation teachings to everyone, whether they are new to mediation or looking to deepen their practice.

 

Classes start with gentle movements in preparation for the body to sit comfortably.  Once ready to sit, Nicole emphasizes the importance of finding your seat and demonstrates several ways of sitting.  When the guided mediation begins, Nicole stresses the importance of focusing on different sensations, whether it be the breath, sounds or feelings in the body.  She incorporates concentration aspects into class like alternate nostril breathing, vocal practices and sound therapy. 

 

I've found that I'm more relaxed after attending one of her classes. I've also been able to incorporate different parts of her teachings into my daily life"

"What is the experience of meditation?  Am I doing it right—What should I be feeling?  Why are my thoughts so fleeting?  

As a beginner to the practice of meditation I have found that Nicole's classes and instruction have helped me set a direction and foundation for my practice.  After sitting for meditation only once, it becomes quickly apparent that like a surfer who unsuccessfully attempts to control the ocean, one cannot simply control their inner thoughts.  At first this realization is disheartening.  But with time it becomes freeing. 

Nicole's meditation class help facilitate this realization.  Her classes focus on more than “only” sitting and breathing.  Instead she goes deeper and explores how your thoughts and thought patterns contribute to how you live and experience your everyday .  Perception is reality.  If you can train your brain to alter your perception of your world you can change your reality. 

Nicole’s guidance and instruction have been instrumental in my attempt to facilitate my own personal change."

"Nicole is an extraordinarily gifted yoga teacher.  She is able to balance rigor with intuition and compassion and her ability to read and respond to the needs of the room are incredible.  She is playful and generous and takes her students right to their edge. Nicole knows the body and the history and intent of each asana.   

 

I consistently leave her class feeling I got exactly what my body and my soul needed.  I have been to all levels of Nicole's classes, including meditation and Yoga Nidra.  She has an uncanny ability to stay focused during various breathing exercises and her voice is perfect for calming the nerves and can trick you into moving into the most challenging of poses with that sweet Aussie accent. 

 

Just writing this has my body yearning for the next class!"

"Nicole Shaw is truly an extraordinary instructor of yoga. She has a deep knowledge of the art and science of yoga and is incredibly positive and clear in her instruction. She works with her students one on one to help them correctly achieve yoga positions and modify as needed. 

 

She makes all members of her class feel confident, yet challenged every session. She is in tune with my abilities, and my skills are growing.  Her instruction has changed my life. I truly look forward to every session. Nicole is by far the best yoga instructor I have ever had. "
