"Two years ago I began a regular yoga routine, primarily for the physical workout. I had very little yoga experience and was nervous about trying something new. Nicky’s yoga was just what I needed. I got the physical workout I needed, but I also received a side benefit I had not anticipated or even thought I needed. I learned to relax and "step-away" from myself and the craziness life. Thanks Nicky, I could not have done it without you! "

"I had 2 yoga classes with Nicole Rolland, she is generous with her time and very patient. She takes time and cares for her students. She doesn't force anyone to do difficult movements. She knows the limits of every student. I enjoy her classes. She is an expert and knowledgeable with great credentials."

My dharma is to teach about love which I believe is your true nature. Perhaps you don't feel very loving right now or doubt that the world is a loving place. I want to reassure you that you are a loving person and the world is a loving place too! it's just going through a bad patch right now :-) But don't take my word for it though.
You need to experience this love for yourself. Like an onion, you have many layers that I will help you peel away so you can eventually get to the core where you hold the juiciest you. Whether you chose a yoga, meditation and/or mindfulness session with me, or whether you enjoy one of my talks, I am passionate with supporting you as you peel away the layers of your onion. Enjoy the video testimonials from a few of my amazing clients.

"I have been doing yoga for 13 years and have worked with a wide range of teachers. Nicky is one of my favorites. She engages the class with physical and spiritual challenges while showing a gentle empathy and understanding of individual needs. Nicky makes good use of music and chants to help set the mood and even provides scented eye pillows during shavasana. Nicky's classes are a good workout and are relaxing at the same time. "

"I have been practicing yoga and meditation for over 30 years. I have worked with a variety of teachers and by far the best to date is Nicole Rolland. Whether you are new to yoga and meditation or have practiced for many years like myself, I strongly encourage you to try one of her classes. Nicole's modern approach is most relevant today to anyone looking to enjoy the many benefits that come hand in hand with the mindfulness practices of yoga and meditation."

"After years of extreme sports, I knew my body and my mind needed something completely different. To my delight, I found it in my first Yoga class with Nicky. With her calm energy and easy-to-follow instructions I quickly became addicted to my bi-weekly practice. In the past year, my increased core strength and flexibility has helped me improve my tennis play, biking and skiing. Go for it!

"A year and a half ago, I joined Nicky's class and my practice changed. I would describe Nicky's class as a breath of fresh air. Something happens during her class, everyone seems to get in tune, happy and it is amazing how she naturally spreads peace and enjoyment of yoga in her 1 hour with us. She is very generous and cares for each student- making sure that the practice suits every level. No one feels inadequate in her class. I feel so calm and at peace after her class. She is a precious teacher who cares and has added so much to my yoga practice. "

"Nicole is an exceptional yoga instructor. She is attentive to your needs, will fix your posture to make sure you are doing everything correctly, and safely. Both the meditation and yoga sessions were amazing. I have done yoga before but my yoga sessions with Nicole was truly the best yoga session I have ever been to. I felt relaxed, refreshed and pain-free. I would recommend both the meditation and yoga sessions. "

Nicky loves to challenge her students while at the same time keeping us focused on what is important in life. Her yoga classes have definitely improved my well being. Thanks for your generosity and caring attitude Nicky!"

She is really wonderful !!!! "
