So, you have been curious about Yoga and think it could help you. You don’t feel like your best self, which leaves you with little energy left for anyone or anything else. You’re so busy and stressed out, you just don’t feel fully there for those you love and your community.
You want to improve your health, get out of pain and relax. The only thing is, you’re not sure if Yoga is for you. You’re not super fit or flexible. Or You have back pain and aren’t sure if Yoga can be made accessible to you?
Maybe you’ve tried a DVD on your own and got lost, or wrangled up your courage and went to one of those big trendy Yoga studios. When you got there you felt a bit like the odd one out; you didn’t have a fancy Yoga outfit and felt a bit uncomfortable? Then after being crammed into the class like a sardine, it felt more like boot camp than Yoga!
You didn’t get any guidance or help from the teacher. You felt lost in the shuffle and left class feeling a bit deflated, not sure if this whole ‘Yoga thing’ is for you.
Believe that you need to be super flexible or skinny to practice Yoga.
Are all about the latest Yoga trends and can’t get enough of hot Yoga, AcroYoga, and the like.
Are mostly interested in Yoga because you want to get your ‘Yoga body in time for swimsuit season’, get a ‘Yoga butt’, detox … or anything else along those lines.
Then I’ve got nothing for you.
But if you…
Are more likely to wear Chuck Taylors than Lululemon.
Don’t think you’re a ‘Yoga person’ — you’re not all that flexible, you have back pain, or you have a busy mind with 20 things running through it all the time — but you still want to experience the awesome benefits of a regular Yoga practice.
Want a committed, engaged, teacher to work with you as you learn Yoga to heal yourself so you can be more present for those you love, your community, and the world.
Then I’m your girl.
I teach ‘real Yoga for the rest of us’: my focus is to make Yoga accessible. I’m an expert in teaching those who aren’t human pretzels — when you can’t reach the floor, I have ways of making the floor reach you!
I didn’t come to this practice with a perfect flexible body. I had a lot of back pain, postural injuries, and tightness. In fact, I had to use chairs for a lot of my poses in the beginning! But I’m so grateful for that experience because it means that I can empathize in a way that comes only through direct experience.
So know this: whether you are in my public classes or a private session, you’ll get personalised attention. I really want to get to know you and make sure that you’re getting the most out of Yoga in a way that works specifically for your body.
We might be perfect for each other if……
- you may have back pain that’s interfering with you rocking your best life
- you need some ‘me time’ so you can recharge and be more present to those you love
- you want to learn Yoga from a teacher you can relate to
Who I am….?
Hi and Welcome. I’m Nyk Danu. I became a Yoga teacher because Yoga has rocked my world! My Yoga practice has made me stronger and more flexible (I didn’t start off that way). It has helped me with chronic neck and back pain. As a recovering Type A personality, practicing Yoga and Meditation has helped me become more patient, content and loving. It has given me a safe place that is all my own to heal and recharge. Having this strong center allows me to offer this healing to my students, loved ones and the world at large. You can learn more about me on my Me page.
How I can help you:
- relieve neck and back pain
- increase your strength and flexibility
- help you recharge and heal
- give you the time and skills you need for self-care
- learn Yoga in a way that is accessible, welcoming, and fun (you might even laugh)
Who Are ‘The Rest Of Us’?
Creative Guys and Gals who don’t feel at home in mainstream Yoga Circles. Those of us who are imperfect, maybe we’re not super fit or a human pretzel. The Rebels, Misfits, the Underdogs, the Introverts, Geeks and Bookworms.
Who I love to work with, we might be kindred spirits if:
- you have a great sense of humour and don’t take yourself too seriously
- you value community and authentic connections
- you secretly yearn to change the world (or at least your corner of it)
- you’re open to new ideas and love to learn
- you’re sick of feeling like crap and are ready to commit health and healing
