WHAT ARE OTHERS SAYING?

โ€‹

Wellness without The ARTS  is like only accessing one brain hemisphere.

โ€‹

Yoga Science gives us intellectual tools, while Nikki's signature dance class, The MOVEMENT  provides an expression of these teachings through the ARTS, known as Natya.

Yoga Science meets Artistry

HOW DID IT BEGIN?

No MUD, No Lotus

๐—ก๐—ถ๐—ธ๐—ธ๐—ถ ๐—•๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐˜€๐—ต: ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐— ๐—ผ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜® birthed during a time of deep personal healing. 

โ€‹

I took a sabbatical from the professional world of commercial Dance & Acting to focus inward and allow the fragmented pieces of myself to find each other. The marriage of Yoga and Natya (The Arts) allowed my life to become a beautiful array of new Artwork, like Japanese Kintsugi.

โ€‹

๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐— ๐—ผ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜® became my truest ally, where I met and united all of the various parts of myself.

โ€‹

Use the body to transcend the body.

Use the mind to transcend the mind.

โ€‹

Use this practice to reconnect the landscape of your emotional subtle body to your beautiful physical body.

The Journey is the Reward
