Nikki Baksh is a multi-hyphenate artist. She received her black belt in Shotokan Karate and became a sensei at age 8. She is an undefeated 2x National Champion and a record holding Actor in N.C.F.L.'s Dramatic Performance, a published Poet, Activist, the Mother of Movement Alchemy, and a respected Celebrity Yoga Teacher. She is a healer and yoga science advisor, working with Creatives in Film, TV, & Fashion. Her clientele includes spiritual seekers, conscious minded artists, yoga teachers, and wellness practitioners. She is currently sharing her wisdom at ISHTA Yoga Studio in NYC.


Her professional career as a dancer, choreographer, and producer coupled with leading worldwide yoga and meditation retreats, earned her the reputation of being “‘transformative’, ‘out of the box’ and ‘having cracked the code on Modern Wellness.’” She is an active member of Amnesty International and has been a champion of human rights activism, since she was 8 years old, having met UN Ambassador and esteemed actress, Audrey Hepburn. She has been an activist for gender equity throughout her career and personal life and is the founder of OUT of the BOXSH, a colorfully curated lifestyle wellness community.


She has been interviewed by national and international news and several publications, helping to lead the empowerment of feminine autonomy through Dance in Denmark. She is a founding member and creative director of Dolls of Eden, a Performance Collective of dancers, musicians, writers, and choreographers in NYC. She speaks and guest lectures at workshops, corporate events, and Arts programs on the topics of working with Feminine Energy within Yoga Science, which includes the fundamental embodiment of Kriyas through Dance.


She is an awarded prose and poetry performer, regionally and nationally. She simultaneously pursued her undergraduate studies in Theatre Arts and Comparative Religions, under a Dean’s scholarship, while also studying with the Studio Arts Central International Academy of Art in Florence, Italy. Her formal dance education at Joffrey Ballet School, served as a solid base for her attendance in professional programming in Advanced studies of Street Jazz, Theatre and Broadway, Contemporary, and Jazz at Broadway Dance Center, Steps, Alvin Ailey, and New Dance Group Studios. She continued her pursuit of spiritual understanding, religious ceremonies, and scared rituals, following the path of Yoga Science, Tantra, Kriya Yoga and spiritual wellness.


She studies with ISHTA Yoga Master teachers, Sarah Finger, Mona Anand, Peter Ferko, and Douglass Stewart, including Tantric Master Yogi Raj Alan Finger. Her embodied nature, as a Yogini and Movement Alchemist, garnered her to become the Yoga Advisor for the Apple TV+ Series, We Crashed. She is the private teacher to Oscar winner, Annie Hathaway, and continues to write, dance, and paint as part of her dharma and artistry.



Breaking the boundaries of traditional Yoga and traditional Dance classes, the Movement, is the place where the realms between feeling & knowing become one.


Sharing this space, where the vessel of the physical body communicates beyond the instruments of sense perception, has led me to travel and teach workshops, retreats and international classes in  Paris, Tulum, Croatia, Greece, Bali, Miami, Los Angeles, Paris, Switzerland, Bosnia and Denmark. I look forward to sharing my offerings and gifts with you.


In addition to my professional artistry, I have trained under distinguished teachers in their respective fields, including:


  • โ€‹Mentorship under Dr. Karen Pechilis Prentiss

  • Internationally Certified 500 hour Yoga and Meditation Teacher ISHTA lineage NYCโ€‹

    • Wendy Newton, Tantra of the Yoga Sutras

    • Mona Anand, Ayurveda and Yoga Nidra

  • Reema Datta, Yatriโ€‹ 

  • Manorama, Jivamukti 

  • Domenic Savino, Yoga Vida

  • Dana Trixie Flynn, Laughing Lotus

  • Marianne Wells, Really Real Yoga

Using the tools of Kriya techniques, meditation, my artistic proficiency, and musical abilities, the Movement was created.
