through the body, connect to soul

Nikki Donoghue

Nikki Donoghue, RYT200
Nikki first introduction to yoga as a living practice was through meditation, seeking peace from the stresses of every day life and a “hyper-focused mind.” The physical practice of yoga came after years of inner soul searching and a desire to connect her newly balanced mind to body, and body to daily life.

Nikki has long been drawn to activities of moving the body. Since the early age of five years old she has been actively involved in dance, gymnastics, figure skating, and even trick hula hooping. Nikki’s favorite expressions of yoga are those that focus on breath before alignment, and alignment before depth. She graduated her 200hr in Anchorage, Alaska under Kimberly Greeff, the creator of Evolve Yoga in May 2018. Nikki is also a certified Roll Model Method® instructor, and incorporates working with yoga therapy balls in her classes to help increase mobility and decrease muscle tension.

Ultimately, Nikki wholeheartedly believes that yoga is for everyone, and wants to assist students with their journeys in feeling more empowered in their lives, and more comfortable in their bodies.

Becky Michalski

For Becky, like most of us, yoga began as a physical practice almost a decade ago. She loved the challenge of asana and delighted in a fast-paced, fun, flowing vinyasa class. Over the years, her yoga practice evolved from primarily a physical one to one that is more nurturing, contemplative, and restorative. As a critical care nurse, Becky experiences first-hand the effects of injury, stress, and illness – which are profoundly traumatizing for the person, their families, and also their caretakers. Physically and emotionally, she began to feel overwhelmed in her nursing career. By slowing down and deepening her yoga practice, she discovered its powerful ability to heal and rejuvenate. It became an important part of a daily self-care ritual that allows her to be more present and compassionate with herself and when caring for others. This realization led to a desire to share yoga with others. Becky took a 200-hour interdisciplinary yoga teacher training in Nosara, Costa Rica, followed by a mentorship with Kim Greeff in Anchorage, and Relax and Renew Restorative Yoga training with Judith Lasater. With this guidance, Becky has discovered a passion for teaching yoga that is accessible to all. In her classes, she hopes to share the healing benefits of yoga and to help you live better in body, mind, and spirit.

What is Foundations?

This is our introductory class. It’s great for students that are new to yoga, those interested in sprucing up on alignment or for those recovering from an injury. This practice will help ALL yogis build a solid foundation and will prepare them to move into the Vinyasa classes, if they so choose. While this practice is alignment focused and moves slowly, you will still work hard! All levels, 75 degrees.
