We’re honored to be hosting a teacher who we consider to be one of the greatest living yoga teachers to our home town. What makes her great? Well, for one – if she read this she’d probably take umbrage at the fact that we’re calling her one of the greatest living yoga teachers. But that’s part of what makes Nicki great.
As students and teachers of this practice, and now owners of a studio – Elizabeth and I make a sincere point of going and taking class and learning from the best. Most of the time it’s pretty good, sometimes it would have been better to save the money and the trip, and even more rarely than that – it exceeds every expectation. Without fail – that’s what you get from Nicki Doane.
There’s no smoke and mirrors and you won’t learn how to do a fancy handstand or a cool party trick you can post up on Facebook. What makes Nicki great is that when you come to learn from her, it isn’t about her – it’s about the practice. That’s what she’s all about. And that’s what we’re all about.
Devotion to yoga and the desire to share with and give back to the world are what motivate the teaching of Maya Yoga with Nicki Doane. Yoga is spirit in action, and as Nicki teaches, she inspires people to find a place of spirit inside themselves, recognizing the profound connection between the self and spirit.
Nicki has been studying yoga in India for years and has been deeply influenced by the teachings of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and B.K.S. Iyengar. Her unique approach to Vinyasa yoga strengthens all aspects of your being through dynamic structural alignment, conscious breathing, and practical yogic philosophy; helping students find the deeper life of yoga. Nicki strives to teach each student that yoga is about being fully present in the moment and discovering that we are truly all One:
One Love, One People, One Heart, One Destination – Our Higher Self.
On Wednesday, July 13 Nicki will be with us here in Gloucester at Cape Ann Power Yoga.
This class will sell out so we encourage you to sign up now.
This will not be a hot class.
