"Nicole’s Yin course curriculum is well thought out, back up with current research and science documents. Her ability to adapt movement to match the structure or movement pattern for all individuals is exceptional. I have know her for many years and it is inspiring to see that she continues to be open-minded in her teaching methods and delivery model. Her ability to articulate thoughts, and navigate

students through a practice that is often emotional and spiritual is beyond exceptional. After leaving the course I simply felt that there is an opportunity to continue to explore this very unique practice and if time warrants I will jump into another chance to train with her. I would have happily paid above $1200 for this course. Nicole brings in her education, experience and other research from her own peers and mentors. The adaptions to movement and her over 10 years of knowledge and experience is shared."
