As a yogini, reiki practitioner, teacher of yoga and a student of life, Nichole has a deep passion for traveling and connecting with people from all around the world, learning about their culture, their story and what liberates them. Through her own personal experience with depression and anxiety, she has surrendered and released from the idea of what she once thought she was, embracing the truth of her very being: divine light, pure love, and free-flowing energy. To awaken to this reality, she dedicated herself to the daily practice of yoga.
Adam was born and raised in Florida, and has always been an avid athlete. From soccer, to snowboarding, to lifting free weights and surfing, he has a passion for pushing his body to its edge. Drawn into yoga by a desire to continue this athleticism after sustaining many snowboarding injuries, he found a practice to take with him as he traveled the world working for Oakley, which provided a low impact, full body workout, as well a way to focus his mind and calm his anxiety. In 2014 he completed his 200hr YTT as well as an extensions program in the Baron Baptiste style of Power Vinyasa Flow.
I consider myself a hospitality, activity and fitness guru. I have lived my life constantly searching for aquatic adventures and thrive on my daily yoga practice. I earned a degree from Florida Gulf Coast University where I studied Resort and Hospitality management; in addition I have achieved several fitness certifications along with my RYT200 Yoga certification, SUP Yoga, Aerial yoga certification, L1 Paddle instructor certification,Group X and personal training certification. I have been teaching fitness classes for over 7 years with a strong emphasis on teaching yoga the past 4 years.
I’m originally from the central gulf coast of Florida, spending most of my childhood in, on, or near the ocean. I moved to West Maui in 2010 to pursue my interests and passions in the ocean, which is where I was first introduced to paddling. Since 2013, I have been competing professionally in Standup Paddle-Board (SUP) races and SUP surf competitions all around the world. Paddling has given me so many incredible opportunities to travel and connect with others through a shared passion for paddling and being on the water.
