About Nikki

Nikki I went to my first yoga class many years ago, and although I enjoyed it at the time, it didn't really take root with me.

Wise Words

"Behind the strength of the body, there is an energy that is spiritual and that is what keeps us alive. To gain access to the spiritual you need to understand the physical. That body is our temple and inside that temple is Atman, and that is God." - Sri K. Patthabi Jois

"Constantly question and search within." - Sri Ramana Maharishi

"Gather courage - the journey has already started. Even if you go back you will not find the old shore again. Even if you go back, those old toys will not be of any help anymore; you are finished with them, you will know they are toys. Now the real has to be found, has to be inquired into. And it is not very far away either - it is within you." - Osho
