About this trip

Helping yoga teachers and dedicated students use seasonal alignment and yoga to support themselves, influence their community and build their practice.

This Program is for Yoga Teachers, Studio Owners, and Dedicated Practitioners. 

Why Choose This Program?

 

As a dedicated yoga practitioner, you LOVE how you feel from your yoga practice and you are ready for more. Maybe you’ve dabbled with meditation but never gotten consistent, or you are curious about deeper breathing practices but not sure where to start, or you feel disconnected in other areas of your life and you are ready to feel strong, healthy and personally empowered. You want to live in a way that feels fulfilling and in sync with yourself.


As a yoga teacher or studio owner, you spend a lot of time giving of yourself. You create your classes and workshops, pour out your time and energy to your students and try to maintain your own personal practice. It can leave you feeling depleted, uncreative and just stuck on how to best practice or support yourself and therefore your student community. I know this sounds crazy but it’s true, a lot of yoga teachers are not living balanced lives!


With this 4-month online mentorship program, you will learn how to seasonally align yourself, your personal practices and your teaching (if you are a teacher) to best support you and your community. When you feel good, everything you do is better and your yoga practice positively spills over into all aspects of your life.

What We Cover

  

Month 1: We start with a Body Audit

We start with an intake to determine your Ayurvedic Constitution and your current imbalances. We take inventory of how and what your yoga practice looks like physically. What issues, injuries or physical challenges do you have? We determine misalignment patterns and areas of weakness, tension or compensation that need adjusting. We create a seasonally based practice for yourself incorporating functional movement, asana and sequencing. Body is the 1st Pillar of Yoga. Asana should be pain free, balanced and energy giving, not depleting.

Month 2: We move to Seasonal Breath

How are you breathing? Breath is life and pranayama is the 2nd Pillar of Yoga. Different breath techniques are appropriate for different people and at different times of the year. We dive deep into pranayama and the energy body to create a breath practice for you and cover how to teach it to your students. Everything is energy and how we breathe directly shapes our energy.

Month 3: Mind Mapping

Your mind is one of the most powerful tools you have. In yoga, deeply ingrained mental patterns are called samskaras. Some samskaras are helpful, they create positive habits that move us along in our personal evolution. Some however are not. Some mental habits keep us stuck and mired in negative or untrue thinking. We can reprogram our mental habits and create focus and clarity through meditation. Using the Yoga Sutras as the backdrop to our study of the mind we can integrate yoga philosophy and technology into our daily lives. Mind is the 3rd Pillar of Yoga because it’s so influential in our lives.

Month 4: Constitutional Nutrition

There are a million fad diets and a ton of conflicting information about what is the best way to eat. There isn’t one way for everyone, but there is a good way for you and it varies throughout the year. We cover seasonal eating and responsive dieting so you can feel your best. Diet is the 4th Pillar of Yoga because it directly impacts our health and well-being.

You Dont Have To Be A Yoga Teacher

 Are you dedicated to your yoga practice and want more? Do you need help with what to practice and want to know the more subtle techniques of yoga? Do you want your yoga practice to spill over into all areas of your life? Are you ready to make changes that feel in alignment with your unique nature? This program is for YOU. This program is for anyone ready to put in the time and energy to go much deeper with the practices of yoga and Ayurveda to create lasting change and vibrancy.

Nikki discovered yoga in 1992 while studying Sociology & Math at UC Santa Barbara. During her college years she fell in love with yoga and was lucky enough to find her life-long passion at such an early age. She committed herself to a regular and dedicated practice right away. Her first and most influential teacher at the time was Sarah Powers. Upon graduating from UCSB she went directly to India to study with Sri K Pattabi Jois in Mysore for three months. Upon returning home she continued studying all things yoga and practicing Ashtanga. In 1996 she teacher trained with Erich Schiffman and Sarah Powers and began her full time teaching career. Since that time she has taught thousands of students both privately and publically as well as developed teacher trainings, workshops, retreats and intensives in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. In 2007 she joined the reputable YogaWorks Teacher Training team and began leading both 200hr and 300hr programs. She is currently the Director of Trainer Development for YogaWorks Northern California. In 2004 Nikki met Rod Stryker and found her “roots” in the tradition of tantra yoga- a system that integrates spirituality into all aspects of one’s life cultivating more peace, joy and personal success. Nikki continues to study with Rod Stryker and Pandit Rajmani Tinugait in the tradition of the Himalayan masters as well as integrating Ayurveda into her personal and professional life. She resides in northern California near to nature with her husband and two daughters.

Nikki's yoga was lovely as was Laconda Del Gallo.
Nikki & Hillary created the most fabulous day retreat at Solage. The yoga classes were fabulous, the pool dipping was great and lunch at the Resturaunt was memorable. The setting at Solage is magical and easy to relax in. The minute you walk in the door you’ll feel the stress melt off. It was a perfect amount of time to feel renewed! I’ll definitely be back for another one!!
Had a lovely day at Solage with Nikki and Hillary! The yoga was perfectly grounding with a gentle cross breeze and the facilities are amazing! It was so nice to have sun and heat, escaping the fog and cold of Marin. The pools were amazing to soak in before and after yoga and lunch was delicious (good sized portions too). Overall a great way to spend a Friday :)
Great venue, awesome teachers - so much fun!
What a beautiful resort! Great view out of the studio, Good food and Wine. Love that my friend and I were able to sneak away from our daily juggling of 3 children to relax you ladies... Commitment to self ❤️
