Nikka has been dancing since age six and began her yoga teacher training in high school to supplement dance, prevent injury, and find peace of mind amongst the anxieties of adolescence. Yoga has now become a way of life for her. Since completing her certification in Hatha Yoga she has explored and accomplished further training in Vinyasa, Ahstanga, Iyengar, Chinese Yoga, and Anusara. She is fiercely passionate and continuously curious about the mind body connection as well as working with all ages kids through senior citizens. Nikka graduated from UW Milwaukee with a BFA in Dance and a Somatics minor. Her fascination with the mind-body relationship has compelled her to study the Alexander Technique intensely throughout college while also taking yoga and dance classes, workshops, and intensives throughout the country and Europe. In addition, she now works as a leading behavior therapist for autistic children and is a student at LMU for her Yoga Therapy Certification.
"As I pursue my journey towards union, balance, and bliss within myself I joyfully and gratefully guide others to reveal their inner wisdom, light, and contentment."
In her free time, Nikka enjoys taking modern dance classes, choreographing, writing poetry, traveling, learning Russian, teaching belly dance, enjoying the beach, watching cartoons, and eating ice cream!
