Slow down. Be Present. Give Goodness.
I'm a conscious creator, human rights activist, spiritual guide, meditation + yoga teacher, transformative artist and writer. My name, Nikki Baksh, translates to Giving Goodness, which is what I aim to share with humanity....goodness.
As a scholar and yoga teacher with over 1000 hours of in depth comprehensive knowledge of meditation, dance, yoga and interdisciplinary studies, my teachings are a unique combination of modern spirituality, steeped in ancient wisdom.
Combining ease, grace, laughter, love and acceptance, I love to breathe light and humor into deep roots through each class, workshop or artistry that I create.
As a dance and movement aficionado, my asana + movement flow classes, allow freedom to explore what each individual truly* needs without needing to approach practice in a dogmatic way. As a gateway inward, we learn to connect breath and body* in a meditative state through dynamic creative asana work and the introduction of tantric kriyas.
Kriyas are purifying techniques for the subconscious and energetic blockages manifesting as disease, discomfort, anxiety, depression, addiction, image + identity dismorphia, and more.
My online classes, workshops and international retreats focus on personal healing, union, finding true bliss and evoking internal balance. Healing happens by calling forth pure consciousness, unbound, unlimited potential into every cell of the body.
This union and harmony with our highest potential and pure limitless capabilities allow for integration of our true nature ---ONE-NESS--- to be breathed into everyday living.
Through planting and cultivating new seeds for deeper gratitude, love, humility and compassion, we essentially start to rewire new neural pathways, creating new patterns to create the life truly desired.
I'm ready to...
Slow down. Be Present. Give Goodness.
Slowing down is now being re-integrated, just as we once learned to multi-task and speed up, now we must learn to pause...be patient...slow down....reflect. Certainly, as a human race we experienced the effects of what slowing down meant to us, when nature presented us with CoVid 19. Hopefully, humanity can now be changed in a positive light moving forward.
However, this up-speed that is taught to human brings, goes against our very nature and the nature of the entire world, which often leads to burn out, fatigue, imbalance, depression. Balance, which requires stillness, slowing down and learning how to be present is a vital tool taught in my personal development courses.
My Conscious Awakening© Training Program: A Transformative Journey Inward, gives students necessary tools to heal and evolve by acknowledging energetic trauma and releasing residual blockages in the chakras, vortexes of accumulated energy stored within the human system. This complex in depth program is available with á la carte options for individual progress.
The Movement© + Soca & Yoga, my latest contemporary offerings, are dynamic twists on dance based movements. Drawing internal passion and pure rhythmic energy into a safe nurturing environment, the soul meets the soles of the feet for an experiential, grounding, sacred, primal, healing class. Movement is taught and then de-constructed to draw your personal intrinsic ancient wisdom into your physical being. This class is based on my ancestral lineage and every class is fused with mantra (call and response), breath work (pranayama), movement + releasing and concludes with savasana (rest).
Weekly classes, available with a weekly or monthly membership, are highly recommended, for all seeking answers to the soul burning questions. Drop in rates are also available for those just visiting.
You can also join me at ALO Yoga NYC and The Yoga Room NYC, for group classes exploring meditation and asana work.
To experience a class, workshop or transformational journey, please reach out to receive a pass and experience healing love, joy of ancient wisdom, pure goodness from my soul to yours.

My gift to you
Light has always existed within the shadows; the key is learning how to clearly see in the darkness, NB
We are often told TO DO things, but now shown HOW.
Let it out.
Release the past.
While these niceties are helpful, they can also be confusing when awakening.
In order for true change to occur, we must be able to identify some of the emotions (feelings carrying seed energy of trauma)
we embody without shame.
My first collection of poems,
is a highly recommended tool to awaken + identify several shadow aspects that often present themselves throughout our lives. Getting familiar with these hidden dragons, bearing light, helps to give goodness through identification & acknowledgment.
With the purchase of my book, comes a complimentary 20 minute virtual dharma session. Simply send me a message showing your order.
Movement begins in the mind.
Move the mind from its conditioned pattern, and the body will follow.
Healing, doesn't have to be heavy.
Even though, there's heavy lifting involved to heal, it doesn't mean that laughter, joy, and happiness have to come afterwards. In fact, true healing involves a healthy dosage of movement, dance and fun!

Interested in Healing through Movement?
"He who heals himself, heals his ancestors."
This transformative healing arts method uses mantras, meditations + kriyas from yoga science, fused with specifically formatted non-linear movements. This allows the body to release stagnant + dormant energy for healing.
These simple yet profound techniques I've created, draw attention inward, creating awareness + insight to bring vitality to the mind/body temple.
Workshops + classes provide a sacred space for true inner explorations. There are no mirrors, no judgment, no right or wrong way to move, be or feel.
Nikki's programming opened my eyes... I feel like this 3 month training continues to reverberate throughout my life...It has taken me quite awhile to break some of the patterns I had established that I thought were valuable, but realized were no longer serving me at this point in my life. Things that seem so simple...
The reiteration of these positive, holistic concepts daily has been truly helpful in making a conscious shift.

Nikki teaches with a generosity of heart, soul, and spirit. With Nikki, I'm experiencing a seismic shift in my practice and moving into something much more expansive than a 'check the box' yoga class. Nikki shares her extensive knowledge as she guides students toward multi-dimensional, meaningful, and exploratory practices, resulting in greater clarity on and off the mat. She is truly special.
Jessica Kruskamp, National Manager - USTA Foundation
Nikki’s beautiful practice has been a wonderful gift to our staff. We were able to open up her class to hundreds of staff across the country virtually and this gave people who don’t normally have access to these workshops an opportunity to experience the restoration and wellness that comes from these methods. Our staff work with individuals who face social and economic hardship. It is rewarding work but can be emotionally challenging. Nikkis class infuses our day with vitality so we can become connected to our purpose and be revitalized for ourselves and our work.

Thank you for your intuitive words.
For me they activated the healing, wholing, and kindness of the practice. I
think you have a real gift for it, and in my experience the only people who have that kind of power are those who have agreed to carry forth their unique gift into the world.
Nathaniel Dolquist, Actor - Actors' Equity Association
Training with Nikki - it's the greatest thing, I've ever done.

You are a wonderful teacher, and I feel very at peace in your classes.
