Hello! I completed a 300-hour teacher training at Breathe Yoga, Toronto in 2011 and I have been a Registered Massage Therapist since 2016. My studies are never-ending! There are always courses and workshops on my radar.
Sometimes looking at the world upside down gives you a fresh, new perspective! After being an avid yogi for almost ten years, Nicole decided it was time to complete teacher training to deepen her practice and share her love of yoga and wellbeing with others. Nicole completed 200 hour teacher training at Georgian College a few years ago, and began teaching soon afterwards. She enjoys a variety of yoga styles, and will complete Restorative Yoga training in early September.
Outside of the studio, Nicole is an elementary school principal, a teacher at heart, and has a passion for lifelong learning. Nicole has a Masters degree in International Educational Leadership, and loves to present workshops about wellness and mindfulness to adults. She is also a mom of grown up kids, a crazy aunt, an animal lover, lover of nature and connecting with people. Nicole lives in Walkerton with her partner Mike, a very spoiled golden retriever named Finnegan and Allistair the cat.
I am looking forward to sharing my love of yoga with you. My goal is to share Peaceful Vitality. Together we will focus on foundational stability, strength and flexibility of our spines, whole rib cage, shoulders and hips. Lengthening and releasing your lower core muscles grounds you to the Earth. With proper structural stability your life force flows within your body easier, bringing more vital energy for your use.

Stacey began practicing yoga at the age of 18, using it as a tool to de stress and exercise throughout her university studies. Now a full time Registered Nurse she finds she needs yoga more and more. With a busy, fast paced career she naturally gravitated towards the vinyasa and beat driven flows eventually leading her to Buti! She did her 200 hour in November 2018 through buti getting her certified in buti, hot buti and vinyasa. She loves the primal aspect, the musical intricacies and the grounding asanas and finds them to be “just what the body and mind needs to get away from the ego”. Stacey has since gotten certified in yin yoga and myofascial release with Eva at the barn in June and incorporates some of the teachings into her cool down and Savasanas. Meet her on the mat Thursdays at 7pm! Check Stacey’s powerful Chatauranga in the pic;)
