Nikki & Shanasha met in 2012 and quickly bonded over flag football and Yoga. They're both well versed in Ashtanga, vinyasa, and other fitness techniques.
For Nikki, Yoga has been a dynamic practice that allows her to routinely tap into her personal sources of peace. Her practice has been especially instrumental in helping to maintain balance between a rigorous career as a Biologist and a compassionate self-lover. Certified in Power Vinyasa Yoga (200 hr), Nikki creates classes that invite everyone to safely construct a foundation for self-rediscovery through practicing postures (asana), breath (pranayama), and focus (dharana).
In 2007 Shanasha (Shuh-nay-sha), a.k.a “Namaste Nay” found herself practicing yoga for the first time. She found yoga to be a healing, renewing, life changing practice that drew her in and never let go. Her professional fitness journey began in a neighborhood recreation center where she later obtained an AFAA certification in Group Fitness and quickly went on to teach Pilates, Yoga, and Bootcamp classes. Namaste Nay is certified in Ashtanga and Rocket Yoga (200hr YTT), Vinyasa, Hatha and the Yoga trapeze.
After suffering from back spasms, sciatica and plantar fasciitis on separate occasions throughout the years, Namaste Nay deepened her commitment to her yoga practice; finding that yoga alleviated these ailments for good and complemented her love for sports and weight training.
