In 2006, the practice of Bhakti (devotional) Yoga, aided her shift towards a more spiritual connection to the practice of Yoga.

She now shares Laser Therapy with her clients, as a non-invasive, drug-free modality for healing.

As the previous owner, and operator of Midtown Juniper Yoga, in Bend, Oregon, Nicole evolved from being an instructor, to an entrepreneur, team leader, and international Yoga Retreat leader. One of her most rewarding ventures was leading a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2017. She intends to continue to offer mentorships, and continuing education for Coeur D’Alene’s growing community of yoga instructors, and all who seek the benefits of Yoga.

Kevin Mcleod

Instructor

I started practicing yoga in 2008.  Coming from a sports background, I was drawn to the physicality of the practice– I loved practicing vinyasa, ashtanga, “power”, and hot yoga.  After years exploring the practice, I began exploring the more subtle realms of yoga.  I still love the physical nature of this practice, but much more powerful are its mental, emotional, and spiritual benefits.

I started teaching in 2012 and it has remained the greatest passion in my life.  I have been blessed to study yoga under teachers from all over the world, in all styles — from Bikram to Bhakti to Kundalini, I’ve always had an insatiable hunger to study Yoga in all its forms.  I’ve just returned from a year in India and am so excited to be back to share what I’ve learned.
