Nikki comes from a background of social work with a resume containing various client populations from Alzheimer’s disease to substance addiction. She graduated with a degree in Human Services and obtained certificates in Substance/Alcohol Abuse Counseling and Community Support. During her education at Northern Essex Community College, Nikki took an academic course on yoga and fell in love with the philosophy. It was clear that becoming a RYT was the next step on her path. Nikki finished her 200hr yoga teacher training from YogaLife Institute in the style of Classical Yoga.
Through her life, Nikki has always been involved with self transformation, healing work, and spiritual practices. Dedicated to intensive programs, apprenticeships, and commitments to her own healing work, Nikki has collected many teachings from various spiritual lineages that have become integrated into her own practice and coaching work. Sharing this wisdom is one of her greatest joys. Always on the path of self discovery, her passions are to bring the work of embodiment and self mastery to her clients.
Ayahuasca has been a huge part of Nikki’s personal path and being able to bring assistance to others who have worked with plant medicines through psychedelic integration and support is a passion of hers. By noting a deep need for resources for those who have had these profound and life changing experiences, Nikki offers integration support for people who have worked with these medicines or have otherwise experienced an abrupt spiritual awakening.
Nikki spent several years as a board member of the nonprofit organization Circle of Women International whose mission is to help preserve indigenous traditions. She was one of the founding members of BEN (Boston Entheogenic Network) and has since resigned her position, though Nikki still offers her support to their leadership team and community. She is an attuned Reiki Master in the Usui lineage. Nikki is certified as a life coach through Health Yoga Life and a student of the Institute for the Study of Somatic Sex Education.
