Nicki Doane began her yoga journey in college, which led her to India in 1991 upon graduating. There she met her teacher, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, who taught her to love her practice and to remain joyful in it. Although rooted in Ashtanga Yoga, Nicki’s classes are in the Maya Yoga style, which combines asana, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, and poetry. She is known for being precise, passionate, and funny in her presentation of the sacred practice of yoga. Nicki lives in Maui, Hawaii, with her family and runs the Maya Yoga Studio with her teaching partner, Eddie Modestini.
