After city hopping from coast to coast, Nicci has finally found her home in Portland! The perk to city hopping was the immense exposure to different yoga teachers and styles, and she brings that and more to her classes. She found her practice in Athens, Georgia, in 2007, and by the time she made it to Los Angeles in 2012, she was ready to dedicate her self to the practice. Under the mentorship of Dani Ibarra and Risa Albertson, Nicci completed 200 hours of teacher training at YogaWorks in 2015. Later in the year, she picked up and moved to Portland, inspired to teach and share everything she could!
Nicci teaches a Vinyasa flow practice, that connects breath and movement in a direct and fluid manner, in order to create strength, balance, and ease in the body and the mind. She has a love for working the core (all 360 degrees) as well as different muscles of the body to prepare for the more challenging poses of arm balances and inversions. Nicci’s classes are built around a theme or pose and can be accommodated to all levels, so come one and come all for a sweaty, fun flow, that will be sure to leave you feeling good!
Nicci can usually be found in southeast Portland, practicing yoga or studying new alignment articles. She prefers to be on her bike or on her mat, but can also be found in the kitchen dancing to her favorite tunes and cooking or baking vegan treats, and yes, she loves to share.
Nicci is honored to be a part of the Flex and Flow community and hopes you can join the team in the studio or on the trails as much as possible. This community is fun-loving, open to everyone, and will always provide a good, sweaty time! See you on the mat!
