Nicole E-RYT Yoga Alliance (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher) since 2014. Nicole has certifications in Yoga, Nidra Meditation and Yoga Therapy Facilitation. She grew up all over the U.S. in a Navy family, but she graduated high school and college in Minneapolis, MN. As a former premier youth soccer player, she experienced several injuries -- including an acute knee injury as she was entering the collegiate level. This experience helped her understand the importance of conditioning the body, along with consistent movement and stretching whether it’s for higher performance, post injury, or preventative care as we age. Her passion is sharing various mind, body and stretch therapies to help others feel happier, healthier and more alive. When she’s not at StretchLab, she’s either studying for something, on her yoga mat or spending time at the beach with her fiancé and the 2 best dogs in the world!
