I am a MOVER; I have a love and passion for movement, creative expression and adventure. I love hard work, fun, play and new challenges.
.
I know that I am not my body but its where I live and its an incredible teacher; to be able to move daily in a healthy thriving body is a gift.
.
Being an athlete, a competitor and a “driver” has meant that I’ve typically operated at full speed, taking many of my interests to the extremes; living at a rapid tempo in all areas of my life - slowing down has been my life challenge.
.
Yoga has taught me presence and to celebrate daily rather than getting fixated on end results. The BIG thing for me, is that I move to get still, to quiet the mind and feel a spark that provides a creative presence; its working from the outside in; working the body to connect mind, body and soul.

What continues to be most impactful for me as a student and is the foundation for my yoga teachings is that when we participate with the intent of tuning into our bodies intelligence we learn how to connect to ourselves in a deeper way.

We begin to understand it has less to do with what the body can do and more about the happiness that unfolds in learning about ourselves - so let’s dive in, get messy, move, sweat, stretch, breathe and allow some fun hard work and play to teach us something more powerful and purposeful.



Michelle Nicol instructs the following:
  • Vinyasa Flow Yoga
  • A class of exploration for syncing movement and breath. We will uncover the magic of non-sequenced flow, and how the wide array of postures linked with pranayama will help support and build a strong mind, body and heart. Each class will be a different experience based on your teacher’s creative choice and background to bring you to new depths and your edge on that particular day. Vinyasa yoga is an opportunity to challenge yourself while accessing a non-traditional flow and the way in which you show up on your mat. How we do one thing is how we do everything. We can’t wait to meet you on your mat, and see where our movement takes us. Everyone is welcome to this class. It will meet you wherever you are in your own personal practice.

    “A class that is always slightly different and inspired by what I am working through in my own life and personal practice. Each class is like a fingerprint, unique and different… just like us...” Kate W. Mak

    “I adore this style of yoga as it helps us to remember our inner strength through the manifestation of the physical body. I’m inspired to teach this because it brings people to the edge of their perceived limitations and encourages them to get curious.” Stacey Irvine
