NICKI DOANE

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.
Nicki teaches at yoga studios and conferences across the globe. She is featured in two Ashtanga Yoga DVDs from Gaiam Inc. and recently produced her own series of Maya Yoga DVDs in collaboration with Eddie Modestini. Nicki and Eddie live in Maui, HI, where they co-direct Maya Yoga Studio.

July 10 – Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga, with Elizabeth – This is what we practice at CAPY! We’ll look at what distinguishes this practice from other modern schools of yoga, the classical lineage of BPVY, our methods, practices, and principles. This will be a lecture combined with some journaling, discussion, and breathing practices.

*This lecture is a great opportunity for those who are interested to find out what our “power yoga” is all about, without having to jump right in to a class.

 

July 17 – Meditation, with Patricia O’Brien – Experienced meditation teacher and Gloucester native Pat O’Brien will lead a practical “how to” session. You will get clear guidance and tips for meditating based on age old Buddhist wisdom. Pat is a long time practitioner of Baptiste yoga and meditation teacher.

July 24: Anatomy & Alignment I, with Elizabeth – With a working knowledge of basic anatomy you will gain confidence and ease on your mat. We’ll look at the skeleton, muscles and fascia, and the main joints. You’ll experience the stability and insight that comes from working with your body.

July 31: Yoga Philosophy & Energy Management, with Elizabeth – Classical yoga is a complete system for elevating your life through health, study, and action. In this session we’ll look at the 8 Limbs of Ashtanga yoga, basic psychology as presented in the Yoga Sutras, as well as some basic practices of energy management based on breathing and posture.

August 7: Anatomy & Alignment II, with Elizabeth – With an understanding of how our main joints move and work together you’ll see your poses in a whole new light. We’ll look at the elements of standing poses, balancing poses, back bends, forward bends, and twists.

August 14: Health from the Inside Out – Our own bodies have amazing powers of healing when we can remove blockages and let energy flow freely. On this evening you’ll enjoy a set of mini presentations from local health practitioners. They’ll explain the physical systems they work with, what techniques they use, and when their modality is best suited to support your healing. We’ll have: acupuncture with Bill Crosby, Chiropractic with Don Tgettis, Reiki and energetics with Silvie Lockerova, and Structural Integration.

August 21: Wholistic Nutrition, with Ron McKinnon – In this modern world we are surrounded by products and foods that are filled with chemicals and empty of nutrients. Ron will help you identify hidden toxins that block your health and give you tools to maximize your well being and fitness.

August 28: Anatomy & alignment III, with Elizabeth – In this final session of the summer we’ll take time to see how body, mind, and soul come together as our seat in this world. You’ll do poses, get assists, do journaling, discussion, and meditation. “Asana is perfect firmness of body, steadiness of intellect, and benevolence of spirit.” B. K. S. Iyengar


For each class please wear comfortable clothes, bring a notebook, extra pen, and something to sit on (two blocks, cushion, or camp chair). For the anatomy and alignment nights please dress to do poses and bring your mat; these alignment sessions are not full practices and are not heated.

Yoga Alliance registered teachers will get CEU credits for attending the lectures.

mondayschool

  Once again – we had an absolute blast in the 2017 Fishtown Horribles Parade and the Rockport Firemen’s Association Parade. Thank you to everyone who tried out a yoga pose (many for the first time ever), all of you who shared pictures online, and most importantly to the countless volunteers and public safety officials who make these events the huge successes they are year after year. A lot of work goes on behind the scenes to make them a reality, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to participate.

Andi Egmont!

This photo captures 3 generations of what looks like a really fun family enjoying their holiday. There is focus and determination, balance and grace, and most importantly big smiles, laughter, and lots of fun. For me – this captures the essence of what our studio and this contest is all about.

Congratulations, and thank you for sharing your light with us!

Additionally…

we want to recognize Rockport Elementary School student, soccer player, and karate green belt (almost brown) Gerardo for this three-legged-dog with our teacher Nicole! We heard that if he won he would be donating the prize to the Rockport Firemen’s Association to help pay for next year’s parade – and we think that’s just awesome so in recognition of his enthusiasm and good will we are donating $100 to the association on his behalf. Good work, Gerardo!

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.

 

  Nicki Doane had a wanderlust that led her to India in 1991 to study yoga. She went to Mysore to meet Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and immediately realized she had found her teacher. Nicki started teaching in 1992. She cites Pattabhi Jois, along with Eddie Modestini, Gabriella Giubilaro, and Tim Miller among her most influential teachers. She is an authorized teacher of Ashtanga Yoga. Although rooted in Ashtanga, Nicki‘s teaching goes beyond the traditional. Her Vinyasa classes combine asana, pranayama, philosophy, and poetry. Nicki’s emphasis is on awareness: creating integrity within each pose that can be carried beyond the mat into daily life.
