Nikki has been teaching yoga since 1987. Her keen interest in Ayurveda led to her studies in which she gained an Advanced Diploma in Ayurveda. Nikki’s teaching style draws on the various yoga traditions she has studied over the years, but particularly on the Hatha / Iyengar methods with their emphasis on correct alignment, and the use of props to support in areas of restriction. She teaches from a strong therapeutic foundation, and takes into account the Ayurvedic body type, any imbalances, as well as any physical limitations.
Leah comes to Ayurveda from a nursing background. Her love of yoga and dedicated practice over many years led her to formal studies in yoga teacher training. Leah went on to complete a post graduate diploma in Acupuncture, and is also completing a post graduate in Marmapuncture. Leah is inspired by the daily practices of yoga, and the simple Ayurvedic routines, which have greatly enriched her own life and draws from her journey of infertility and involvement in IVF programs.
Your adventure in this India retreat starts in Central Delhi and the journey will take you to Rishikesh as well.
