Helen Nicholson

Helen began training with Peter Nilsson at the Yoga Academy in 1996 and taught for a few years before having children. She returned to teaching here in 2007 after up-skilling with Jude’s training modules practice. Her practice is in the tradition of Iyengar Yoga, and she loves restorative yoga for the rest and therapeutic aspects it contributes to a regular practice.

Helen’s interest lies in working with people who are new to yoga as well as regular practitioners to deepen their experience of the practice of yoga. She teaches with an awareness of alignment for clarity, safety and mobility with a focus on mental, emotional and physical wellness.

Outside of a class environment she enjoys helping people develop a home practice that complements their class experience and to work with the unique needs and specific qualities that they bring to the mat.

Helen currently teaches at the Auckland Yoga Academy:
