Classes entail deliberate, focused, and free movement beginning with a guided meditation for grounding purposes and ending with a whole body relaxation. Intentional breath work and tension release play a major role in each class. Classes are designed and facilitated by Nicole to meet each person where they are at, and to bring all out of the mind and into the body.
Nicole currently calls her practice Moving Insight, as she bounces back and forth between being a Psychology bookworm and being a professional mover. In 2008, she earned a BA in Psychology and went to work right away as a Therapeutic Mentor and Family Case Manager in Massachusetts. She eventually uprooted and moved to Utah and began training vigorously to satisfy her dream of becoming a Professional Dancer. While working at a therapeutic day care and studying to earn her Personal Training certificate, she brought that dream to life by performing with the Utah Grizzlies Ice Girls in 2011-2012. Later, during a brief transition as a Personal Trainer, Nicole's fierce curiosity about developing therapeutic tools to help herself and others through emotional (and physical!) healing pulled her deeper into the yoga world. Her training for professional dance, and exploration in acrobatic circus arts, began to slow down a year after she traveled to Bali, Indonesia to earn her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certification in 2014. She has since quit her "day job" in the Human Services/Social Work field as well as her "dream job" as a performer to dedicate time to her personal healing journey. She hopes to share her impactful discoveries and insights with others because she believes in the art of movement as a tool of healing through life's circumstances.
