During this class, students can expect a unique and accessible yoga sequence, linking breath to movement to increase strength and flexibility often while integrating mindfulness techniques. Nicolette especially enjoys teaching outdoors amidst the sights, smells, and sounds of nature, which often aid students in cultivating presence and peacefulness on and off the mat.
