About the classes
Yoga & Relaxation
These classes are based on the Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga tradition and offer a more flowing but also mindful approach to traditional Hatha yoga. The classes are ‘beginner friendly’ and develop the connection between movement and breath, building strength, flexibility & balance. The focus is on developing safe alignment and building core strength whilst learning more about breathing (pranayama) and meditation practices.
The classes are suitable for beginners and general level students. I offer modifications to help create a more gentle or dynamic practice depending on your experience. If you have injuries or are unsure whether the class might be suitable please contact me. I encourage students to rest when they need to and adapt their practice according to their present condition, we all go through changes in life and one of the beautiful things about yoga is that it can be adapted to suit you. The class ends with a guided relaxation.
Thank you so much – I’m hooked for life!”

Yoga, Voice & Meditation
In this class, we’ll explore a slow but flowing yoga practice, including vocal exercises, chakra sounds, and mantra. You’ll develop more power and connection with your body and your voice. This will be combined with longer held Yin yoga postures which help to bring us into a more meditative state, encouraging inner awareness, replenishing our energy and calming our nervous system. We’ll then move into Meditation and relaxation, to de-stress, find more focus and re-center ourselves. When we’re quiet enough to hear our own wisdom and guidance, it helps us to find strength, perspective, and peace in our busy minds. Although this is a more general level class and some yoga experience is ideal, it’s also suitable for beginners, particularly beginners who already use their voice or have a general level of fitness.
Fee free to contact me if you’re not sure.
I’ve been a student of Nicky since she started teaching in Sydney over a year ago and already she has to leave… what a shame. Over a few months, her classes have grown so popular that it’s sometimes difficult to find a spot! Nicky is a very talented practitioner as well as teacher. She is able to work with many students different levels while keeping the practice challenging for all. I’ve been practising yoga for more than ten years and for the first time thanks to her ability I wasn’t bored in open classes. Her style is dynamic, yet respectful of all students needs. She makes everyone feel welcome and comfortable, always considerate of her students. I’ve taken yoga classes at a number of places with many different instructors and Nicky is with no doubt one of the most gifted I ever had.”
