Nicole is an herbalist, birth worker, writer and mother. Her path to wellness and healing began 20 years ago when she started practicing Ashtanga yoga. Certified to teach Hatha yoga in 2007, Nicole became a birth doula and HypnoBirthing practitioner after the birth of her first child. This journey into the great cycles of life led her to the lap of the great mother, where she completed the apprenticeship of the California branch of the Gaia School of Healing. Nicole’s passion is the reproductive system, and, as a vaginal steam practitioner and creator of the YoniThrone, she enjoys seeing the miracles that steaming can create for fertility and women’s healing. Reproductive rights, racial justice and female empowerment are issues that are near to her heart. She is grateful to facilitate the activism branch of the Gaia School of Healing.
