After 11 years in New York City, Nicole ditched her high-heels of the art world in order to commit herself to the study and teaching of Yoga. She completed her 200 hour teacher training at Jai Yoga Arts in Brooklyn and founded WanderFreely in 2015 as a way to bring together individuals through the experience of travel, yoga, self-discovery and community.
Nicole initially became interested in yoga in 2005, for the physical benefits, however, committed to a consistent practice when she noticed how yoga challenged her patience, humility and ability to slow down. Through her practice she continues to confront and overcome fears, let go of ego and attachments, and surrender to the present moment. Nicole has seen the positive change that yoga has had in her own life and believes that through softness and surrender we can find empowerment and strength.
Nicole loves learning about people and what it means to live life fully. She is a certified Souluna Life Coach and Reiki Level I & II Practitioner. When she is not wandering she divides her time between Brooklyn, Costa Rica, and her home state of Maine.
