Nickie completed her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga on York in 2012. She then went on to study Prenatal and Mom & Baby Yoga at GLOW. Nickie is grateful to be part of the wonderful GLOW team where she currently teaches prenatal yoga and mom & baby yoga, as well as private and semi-private yoga classes by appointment.
Nickie passionately believes in the endless benefits of yoga both during pregnancy and the postpartum period, and it shows in her teaching! With the birth of her daughter, an even greater passion blossomed to support and nurture women through their very personal journey into motherhood.
When Nickie is not on her yoga mat you’ll find her walking the beaches with her husband Martin, their daughter Aoife, and dog Apple.
