Nikki Smithson

Yoga is a place to unwind and let go in order to discover your true self. The more you learn about yourself and tap into the divine light inside us all, the brighter you become each and every day.

Nikki discovered Yoga through Bikram at a studio around the corner from her apartment in Colorado. At first, she loved the heat and the physical challenge. Over time, she began to notice changes beyond just her physical body. She began to unwind more and more with each Yoga class. Having anxiety and asthma much of her life, she never thought that anything could calm her mind and allow her to take deeper breaths. When she moved back to California, she fell in love with flow based styles and the gentler styles of Yoga. Nikki completed her initial 200-hour certification at Yogasource in Los Gatos and her second 200-hour energetic flow training under her mentor, Jillian Glikbarg. She is now studying with Yogarupa Rod Stryker of ParaYoga.
