About Nicole Jones
Nicole Jones started practicing yoga 12 years ago to bring peace and balance into her life. Yoga gave her not only a welcoming and safe feeling, but provided her with a sense of belonging. Nicole fought her inner demons for years. She ran and tried to escape who she was. Yoga has taught her to love, appreciate and value herself in ways she never thought were possible. Through yoga she found the strength to battle an eating disorder and create a healthy relationship with food, her body and learned to love who she is. She never would have thought this would ever be possible. Her journey with yoga saved her and she is forever grateful for what it has done for her. Nicole would not be where she is today had she not stepped into her first class 12 years ago.
She now lives her passion and does her very best to be authentic in her teaching and allow people the space to lean into their edges – to shift – to dive deeper – to expand – to awaken – to wake up their true self and discover their full potential
She believes that as humans we tend to lean into comfort and what feels good, shying away from the ugly and uncomfortable sensations. When we lean into our edges, these areas of discomfort, we give ourselves the opportunity to discover our strengths, abilities and limits. These edges, shadows and hidden areas are where the magic is, where we find the little gifts that allow us to expand, grow, unravel and ultimately shift and change. If we limit ourselves to what is comfortable we risk getting stuck and missing out on our true magnitude and all the yumminess that discomfort brings us. Yoga teaches us how to accept all of it, teaching us to live without attachment to what feels “good” or “bad”, an important concept that can be transferred to our everyday lives.
