Nikki Yoga News – Intro Series Starting at Taj Yoga

Taj Yoga in the Crown Hill neighborhood of Seattle is where I completed my 200-hour teacher training, where I’m currently doing my 500-hour training, and where I have spent many, many more hours studying and refining the craft with senior teacher Theresa Elliott. So, it was a defining moment of my teaching career when Theresa asked if I’d like to teach at Taj.

You know when those cartoon characters get excited and go bonkers with their eyes popping 10 feet out of their skull? Yeah, that’s how I felt.

So, heeere we go! I hereby announce my Intro to Yoga series at Taj Yoga!


This seven-week introduction series will cover the fundamentals of yoga, including alignment, breathing, and relaxation techniques. These classes are progressive and will help prepare you to take ongoing yoga classes with confidence.

Classes are for anyone brand new to yoga and those who may have dabbled in a class or two and would like to start on the right foot (it is ok if you’re left-footed too). They are also appropriate for anyone who has been doing yoga for some time and looking to gain a more solid understanding and foundation.


Wednesday evenings, 6-7:15pm
7 weeks starting January 13 – February 24
(You can think of it as 113-224 if it makes it easy to remember)


The normal drop-in rate at Taj is $15
$85 for the whole series for one person ($12.14 per class)
$150 for two ($10.71 per class)

What some students who have taken the series said

“I love that Nikki spends the time to explain the whys of each posture, and even each adjustment, rather than just running students through a prescribed series with little or no thought involved” – David Tolmie

“She is a very technical teacher. Aways fine tuning your poses to make them just right for you. Never in a hurry and always willing to let you try it out on your own pace. Always asking how your body is doing and what it feels to you. She will push you to your limits, but never farther than your body will allow or is unsafe. Plus, she is overall a fun person to be around.” – Chad Adair
