Nicole

AYURVEDA, YOGA, MASSAGE, MEDITATION

I have been blessed to have had a somewhat varied and interesting life.  Always loved travelling, and being immersed in foreign landscapes, new cultures. Experiencing the extraordinary around the

 world. I’ve worked as a travel consultant with an African Overland company, as a host for Ski Chalets in France and Austria, hosted and cooked on a Barge along the Bourgogne canals of France, and so much more.

Over 20 years ago I discovered Yoga as a means to create space just for myself, away from life’s challenges. As time went on, my passion grew to want to understand more about this ancient healing practice, what it has to offer the individual. But more importantly, what the individual has to offer to others. Inspired and influenced  through the lineages of Ashtanga, Iyengar and Hatha Yoga, I’m very fortunate to have been guided by some of the most renowned teachers.

Already living a Yogic lifestyle and receiving treatments, I wanted everyone to benefit in what I knew really, really worked. So, it felt like a natural progression to study how to shift energetically stuck physical and emotional patterns, through Zen Shiatsu and Ayurvedic massage. I loved how the two lineages struck similarities but could also be opposing.  Just like life itself!

Fast forward to today, and I am an experienced Practitioner. With an avid interest in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine which are integral to my work.  A well-developed power of observation and understanding of human behaviour and conditions, has enabled me to treat pregnant (pre and postnatal) patients along with those suffering from cancer, stroke, polio, arthritis, anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, MS and other debilitating illnesses. I find nothing more rewarding than witnessing people’s lives turn around through having knowledge and confidence to regain power over their own health and wellbeing.

I am really excited to be able share my understanding of Yoga and Eastern Medicinal Philosophies with others.  My intention when you join me in a Wanderlust trip, is to provide more than just a “retreat/distraction” from your busy life. In sacred parts of Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan we will experience activity, peace, interaction, solitude, plus meaningful connectivity with the locals and each other.  Exploring ways of living a life in grounded ease, and creating practical toolkits which can be drawn upon, long after our trip ends.
