Nikki Vee | Create Your Sunshine & Kirtan Caravan Founder | RYT-200
Nikki Vee has been teaching Hatha, Vinyasa & Yin styles of yoga since the summer of 2017 and practicing on and off for over 15 years. Nikki is inspired by Sianna Sherman, Bernie Clark and Steph Góngora and has also studied with Aline Marie, her first yoga teacher, and locally with Krista Allen-Davis, Elizabeth Peters, Jennifer Garcia and Julia (Jiya) Randall during her 200-hr yoga teacher training in Fort Collins, CO.
Nikki graduated from the 200-hr yoga teacher training program at Holistic Yoga School & Studio in January 2016 and is now registered with the Yoga Alliance. Health and wellness has always been a passion of Nikki’s, which lead her to pursue a Holistic Health Coaching certification in 2012 from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City. She is also Reiki One and Access® Bars attuned and the founder of Create Your Sunshine and Kirtan Caravan.
Nikki’s practice and teaching style focuses on creating a soft and sacred environment, allowing students to explore their breath and intuition. Classes are slower paced, inviting time and space into each posture, and offering modifications or advancements for all levels of practice and ability.
Jennifer Garcia | Kirtan Caravan Teacher | RYT-200
Jennifer has been working as a neonatal nurse since 2005, and has always had an interest in a holistic approach to healthcare and wellness. She discovered yoga when searching for relief from chronic neck pain and stress. After years of a regular yoga practice from which she noticed many physical, mental, and spiritual benefits, she was inspired to become a yoga teacher herself. Jennifer completed her 200 hour RYT in 2014, and since then has guided a variety of yoga and meditation classes, teacher trainings, workshops, ceremonies, and retreats. In 2018, she also became an Usui Tibetan Reiki Master.
Jennifer was given the spiritual name of “Rasa” after completing her yoga teacher training. It simply means the absolute heart of something, and speaks to her personality in that she is genuine and honest and puts her whole self into everything she does, including the practice and teaching of yoga.
Jennifer specializes in gentle yoga, yoga for the neck & shoulders, yoga for beginners, restorative yoga, and guided meditations, including yoga nidra. She also has extensive experience in the traditional styles of hatha and vinyasa yoga. The focus for her students is on self-care and stress reduction, and she enjoys incorporating the use of music, essential oils, and crystals into her classes.
Jennifer’s mission is simply to share the joys of yoga and meditation with all who show interest. Her philosophy is that anyone can do yoga and experience its many benefits, and her teaching style nurtures this intention. All of her classes are accessible to people with all levels of yoga experience, including none at all. She loves to offer others the opportunity to feel healthier and happier through the practices of yoga and meditation.
