She brings to her trainings much knowledge and insight into how to skilfully practise and teach yin and functional yoga, whilst holding the space to do the deeper healing work. 


Nicky is a lifelong student, ongoingly embarking on various training programmes to deepen her own knowledge and practice. Alongside her long-term mentorship with Jo Phee, Nicky has had the privilege of studying with some of the world’s leading teachers and healers in the fields of yin yoga, anatomy, mindfulness and trauma and addiction recovery, including Paul Grilley, Sarah Powers, Bernie Clark, Joe Barnett, Josh Summers, Biff Mithoefer, Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield, Tiffany Cruikshank, Nikki Myers and Gabor Maté, to name a few. 


Nicky has developed the Yintelligence syllabus, to focus on her own personal areas of interest and experience around the power of yoga to heal from trauma, mental-health issues and addictive behaviours.
