“I thoroughly enjoyed my Private Hands-on Yin Yoga Session with Nyk Danu. Nyk provided a personalized session specific to my needs and former injuries. The gentle session was seamless and I was impressed with the continuity and flow beginning to end. I left feeling refreshed, centered and with increased vitality. I highly recommend Nyk and her private classes, it is clear she is very knowledgeable and an excellent Yoga teacher. “
