Hi I’m Nicky.


I came across yoga at my local gym in my 20s.  I was curious to try it and was hoping it would prevent any further sports injuries.

I was always drawn to the Health and Fitness industry.  My first job at age 15 was as a part-time Tennis Coach at David Lloyd Club in Raynes Park, and I continued to coach through university and beyond, until I began my career at British Airways.  My Cabin Crew roster didn't allow me to commit to regular lessons!

I thoroughly enjoyed my 16 years at BA, where I was also a Programme Manager in Ops, Customer Experience and Joint Business & Alliances.  I went through a number of cost-saving restructures and experienced first hand the impact of re-organisation on wellbeing.  I trained fellow Project Managers and was also a Wellbeing Ambassador, advising passengers on jet lag and organising the first ever Wellbeing Festival in the Crew Centre.

Fast forward to 2013 when I left my corporate job to move to Paris.  I had time to consider what I wanted to do with the next phase of my life and as soon as I got home, I jumped into teacher training with Strala Yoga.


Strala introduced me to Tai Chi principles such as softening, and moving with ease, and to the vast wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and I haven’t looked back. 


I love sharing what I’ve learnt and making life easier for people.  Health, healing and happiness is at the core of what I do and I’m here for the long haul.

If you'd like to reduce stress, and feel happier and healthier, do get in touch.
