Nikolle Embree

Yoga Instructor

Nikolle started her journey in Ballet, Lyrical, Contemporary, and Jazz at the age of 4 in Durango, Colorado. She continued practicing this art until the age of 18, when she became a Certified Professional Ballroom Instructor specializing in American Smooth, Latin (Rhythm), Swing, and Country. She eventually competed professionally in various national dance competitions.


As her love for teaching grew she found that many students turn to dance as a method of healing, a form of movement meditation, or an escape from stressful situations. She decided to learn the healing technique of Reiki and incorporate this into what she would like to offer her students should they desire an additional form of relaxation or healing method.


Her newest found love has been for yoga, and all of its many benefits. This has been a great path to incorporate her passion for dance and her desire for helping people, to all come together in one practice.
