Yoga is a 5000 year old practice, for the Body, Mind & Spirit

BOOK YOGA COURSE BELOW

Nikita trained in traditional Yoga from a young age, with a Swami (Yogi) at her local Hindu temple in Slough.

By the time she was 20 years old, she was practicing for several hours a day and attending classes a multiple times a week. The physical postures helped to make her body strong and supple, which supported her as a professional dancer. The breathing techniques helped her to feel calm and connected to herself, which ultimately led to her spiritual quest, of going to India by herself to discover her life’s purpose.

Nikita spent an intensive period of time at Sivananda Ashram in Kerala, South India to achieve her 200 hour Teacher Training qualification. During this solitude Nikita had a calling to share her experiences with others and she started teaching adults in 2010 and later went on to qualify as a children’s Yoga instructor. In 2021, she completed 100hrs Meditation Teacher Training qualification.

Nikita has since built up a depth of knowledge and wisdom which she brings to her group Yoga classes. Each session is structured, with a desired outcome of leaving participants feeling completely rejuvenated. Many students say their 1hr weekly Yoga class is the highlight of their week! Most report that they sleep better and feel less anxious in the following days after their class.

Nikita’s classes are recommended for anyone with or without health problems. She can tweak the postures, according to individual needs. Whether you are a complete beginner or have done Yoga before, you will be made to feel at ease with Nikita’s relaxed approach in a calm and atmospheric setting. The sessions last 1 hour and include a series of Asanas (postures), which develop STRENGTH, FLEXIBILITY AND BALANCE. There is also a strong emphasis on postural alignment, ideal for anyone suffering with skeleton problems or looking for pain management.

 
Through regular classes, you will be introduced to the concept of controlling your mind with your breath to bring yourself into the present moment, through the contrast of movement and stillness. After a prolonged period of practice, you will notice profound benefits such as better digestion, improved sleep patterns and increased concentration. Alongside Yoga, Nikita is a Reiki healer specialising in chakra balancing for emotional harmony.
