Instructors

Nicole Schiavo
Nicole is a certified Hatha yoga instructor. She has been practicing yoga for over 20 years. The search for comfort during a grief and a difficult life experience, led her to open herself to meditation and her first yoga class in 1994. The expansion of body awareness, developing deep roots within your own being, finding self-acceptance, and most importantly, self-love, are her main focus as a yoga instructor. Nicole teaches groups, as well as one-on-one classes.
