Nicole Blackwood, Founder
RYT 200, B. Eng.
Nicole completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training through the Living Yoga Program in Austin, TX in September 2013 and has also trained in Restorative Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Kid’s Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Chair Yoga, Supreme Release Yoga, along with many other courses pertaining to the wisdom teachings of yoga.
Recognizing that everyone is unique, Nicole takes an individualized, playful, and nurturing approach in her teaching. She is passionate about learning and teaching more about the subtler aspects of the yogic tradition and weaves them into her teaching. Her mission is to make it easier for people to invite yoga into their lives and founded Embody as an accessible and inclusive space for all people to practice.
She has a passion for women’s health and is also a Registered Holistic Nutritionist. She teaches fertility programs including yoga, diet, and lifestyle support for those experiencing fertility challenges, drawing from her own experience of her journey to ultimately conceiving her daughter through IVF.
When she is not teaching or practicing yoga, she enjoys experiencing the world through the eyes of her daughter, walking her Westies, being in nature, making a mess in the kitchen for her husband to clean up and traveling and camping with her family.
