Nic is a former Professional athlete who has been involved in athletics his whole life. He has been practicing yoga for 17+ years, but it wasn’t until a severe car accident in 2013 that left him with spinal cord damage that Nic became more adamant with his yoga, practicing almost 4-6 times per week. After his injury he was told that he would need surgery to recover…looking for a holistic lifestyle approach to compliment his pain management program, Nic continues to practice regularly various styles of yoga and insists on sharing his love and passion to inspire other yogis and not-yet-yogis alike. Nic received and completed his 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher certificate in Vinyasa Yoga and Thai Yoga Massage through LagoCPH (Copenhagen Denmark) and Anamaya Mind and Body Resort, Costa Rica. He brings a lot of personal experience into his classes by offering layers and modifications for varying fitness levels and for those who may have specific injuries or needs in their bodies. He has a strong focus on safety and anatomical alignments that he brings to the practice. Nic loves arm balances and challenge poses utilizing breathe, body weight and counter balance to safely build strength and increase endurance.
"Can’t decide on just one class? Why not try it all with MINDPOSE FUSE, Just one of the Original (ALL LEVELS) classes you will find on the schedule at The Mat Yoga now brought to you for the Granogi Fest 2018!! What is MINDPOSE you ask, MINDPOSE was created by The MatYoga to help new and seasoned yogis alike get the most out of their yogic journey by how we methodically speak to, and deliver a class. With a previous career in writing educational curriculum for the haircare industry, Nic has bridged his understanding of students and how the brain and body accepts, interprets and learns information to teaching Yoga. We at TMY have created a presentation method to satisfy just that...MINDPOSE, experience what it’s like getting the most out of YOUR practice! MINDPOSE FUSE is a harmonic balance of a few different styles of Yoga we teach at The Mat Yoga. Starting with 20 minutes of MINDPOSE POWER to stimulate prana, activate larger muscle groups and ignite the circulatory and lymphatic systems; then, followed by 5-10 minutes of MINDPOSE FLIGHT (another original class at TMY)workshop style arm balance/inversion preparation and execution, offered in layers from the most foundational to a bit more advanced....all brought together with 20 minutes of MINDPOSE DEEP (TMY’s interpretation on Yin yoga) to increase flexibility, stimulate joint mobility as we allow the prana to rest. 50 minutes of pure harmony.
