Nikki M. Krause

Nikki developed an infatuation with yoga in her teens. With over eighteen years of practice and ten years of teaching, it is the complete body restoration that a daily yoga practice offers that brings her back to her mat. She has studied many forms of yoga including Iyengar, Hatha, Kundalini, Anusura, and Power Vinyasa. It was during her two year Ashtanga practice under Itay Dollinger in Laguna Beach, CA that her infatuation turned into respect for the practice. In 2009 in San Diego, CA. Nikki began to train as a yoga teacher at CorePower Yoga, including Power Yoga, Hot Yoga, Yin Yoga, Yoga Sculpt, and Circuit Training. It was there that respect blossomed into a deep love and connection to yoga with the addition of a creative outlet that resonated with her spirit. Nikki continues to study the healing benefits of yoga under her Holistic Health development. As an avid trail runner and DJ, Nikki chooses a daily practice to keep her body aligned, her mind clear, and her heart open to creative possibilities.
