“If you don’t believe you have time to meditate, you don’t. It’s really a matter of choice and commitment, not time,” says Brooklyn’s Nikki Costello. This tough love is exactly what makes her such a popular teacher throughout New York, leading classes at the Brooklyn Iyengar Institute and also courses on the Yoga Sutra. The former drama student discovered yoga in school in the 1990s and today travels the world leading retreats and teacher trainings, as well as continuing her education in India.
