I have been a client of Nicoles for over twelve years, attending many of her varied classes at Body Awakenings. Throughout this time, she has supported me in my physical fitness and mental health, several pregnancies, including a multiple birth and recovery and most recently as one of her Sydney students of Yogalates Teacher Training. When teaching a class, Nicole has an innate ability to absolutely challenge each individual by pushing them to their limits, combined with the art of setting up the body perfectly during asanas, in a completely safe way, with relatable cues to avoid injury. I chose to take the Yogalates Teacher Training course with Nicole's encouragement and support and was fortunate to have her as the Sydney teacher trainer. I feel truly blessed to have shared this experience with such a talented, caring and beautiful soul. Nicole compliments the amazing team in Byron with her insight and deep understanding of the practice of Yogalates, coupled with an extensive level of knowledge in Anatomy. What makes Nicole stand out is her ability to share this with her students in a very personal yet professional way. Her honest and open approach to teaching allowed her to share many stories and experiences. It is her humour and unique style that made every lecture interesting and always relatable.
Nicole always showed patience and genuine care, giving her time for each student, endeavouring to support and encourage them in their personal journey and instil confidence. This ongoing support remaining even after the conclusion of the course.
I look forward to continuing my journey with Nicole both as her student and inspired fellow teacher and becoming a part of the Yogalates family."
