Niki, founder of Java Yoga, received her 200 hour yoga teacher training in Philadelphia in 2002.  She has since completed an 80 hour training in Hot Yoga and a 36 hour training in Restorative Yoga in Vancouver

Rooted in an enquiry-based style and operating from the new
paradigm of BioTensegrity, Niki invites students to be deeply present and explore the daily needs of their evolving bodies.  Traditional Vijñana Yoga postures (with variation for all levels) are interspersed with Myso-fascial Manipulation, Tensegrity sequences, dance moves and Pilates. All movement is centered around the breath.Niki is heavily influenced (and occasionally overcome) by Vijñana and Kundalini Yoga, Zen Meditation, Somatics, Burlesque Dance, and Myo-Fascial Manipulation. It is her goal to assist students in ultimately becoming their own teachers.
