“Over the past 7 years Nikola has been a major influence in the development of "balance" in my life, not only in the physical arena, but also for my mental, emotional and spiritual well being. She is a gentle, persuasive and creative teacher and has developed wisdom across many fields of practice. Whether working with Nikola in a group setting or one on one, she always maintains a high degree of professionalism, attentiveness and care for the whole person”.
