Nicole Hudson is certified 200hr RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) and level 1 Reiki Practitioner based in Brooklyn. Born and raised in Maine, Nicole takes every opportunity to connect with and be in nature. She is an avid traveller and has a serious case of wanderlust, always looking for her next adventure. She hopes that her continued journey will inspire others to follow their hearts and do what they LOVE!
Nicole initially became interested in yoga for the physical benefits, but committed to a consistent practice when she noticed how it challenged her patience, humility, and ability to achieve stillness of mind. Nicole feels yoga is the union between mind, body, and spirit and enjoys that yoga is a continuous journey that offers the necessary tools needed to navigate the waves of life.
Through her physical practice, she has been able to confront and overcome her fears, let go of ego and attachments, and surrender herself to the present moment. She has seen the positive change that yoga has had in her own life and the strength she has gained mentally over the years to help move through unexpected challenges as they come.
Nicole hopes to ultimately convey this message to her students, as it made a significant impact in her own life. Every time you step on the mat you are given the opportunity to learn and grow in new ways and Nicole considers the practice of yoga a never-ending lesson in learning how you relate to not only others, but to yourselves.
Since then, Nicole has reevaluated her life; leaving her corporate job after eight years to focus on furthering her yoga education, teaching, and starting her company, WanderFreely. She continues to expand her knowledge of yoga by taking classes and workshops with teachers such as Seane Corn, Kahtryn Budig, Noah Mazé, and Shiva Rea. She plans to begin her 300-hour training in 2017 and will train with Coby Kozlowski as part of the Karma Yoga Leadership Intensive: A One Degree Revolution beginning in January 2017.
