Sessions with Nicci

The primary form that my work takes is in the ancient tradition, teachings and science of Yoga. Everything I do is integrated around this core foundation. People generally find me when they are seeking help to: alleviate some form of pain, regain lost confidence in their body, learn how to meditate or understand some of their meditation experiences, have a clearer relationship with their emotions, their soul, and to understand their life’s larger questions and challenges. 

 

Over the past 10 years of teaching and working individually one-on-one, my style, philosophy and methodology has evolved to include a synthesis of tools drawn from Ayurveda, Hatha Yoga, Thai Yoga Bodywork, Biodynamic Cranio Sacral Therapy, Reiki, Subtle Aromatherapy, Yoga as Therapy and Mindfulness and Compassion based Meditation. 

The core belief that shapes my work is that we have more bodies than just the physical, including subtle bodies (emotional, mental, spiritual), and I try to work on all those levels. For me, this is what it means to truly see someone holistically. And it is deeply satisfying when someone I am working with can see themselves in this way too. 

Anytime we are in pain, we are not in the experience of joy. At the essence of what I do is facilitate a process whereby each person may return to the joy and freedom in themselves.

 

No matter the focus, each session is always intended to guide you back to the trust and wisdom of your own body, your inner teacher, and your own state of health and well-being. 

These are some of the ways that I work:

 

  • Refine or begin one's yoga practice

  • Returning to a postural practice after an injury or illness, or simply a long absence of physical movement

  • Working with low back pain, a special interest of mine.

  • Working with emotions through cultivating the meditational state of equanimity

  • Opening the inner senses using guided imagery and active imagination in meditation

  • Spiritual mentoring providing guidance in life’s larger questions and challenges. I help individuals take the soul's perspective in areas of life where there is a feeling of being stuck. We look at energy dynamics, forces in play, and how to get things moving in the direction of joy and inner peace.

These are some of the characteristics and values you may experience when working with me:

 

  • a welcoming presence that is non-judgmental

  • a recognition and honoring of your own agency and inner wisdom

  • the space of silence and contemplation

  • deep active listening and reflection

  • powerful questions which may be uncomfortable, but are intended to return you back to the path of Union

  • open-ended inquiry

  • an emphasis on a process that is focused on learning & growth rather than on “fixing” or “solving a problem”

  • celebrating your successes and growth with altruistic enthusiasm and support

  • offering tools and resources that may continue to support the process of learning & growth
