Nikki Benoit

An east coast native, Nikki spent her college years and beyond as an activist for animals, the environment and social justice. Needing to make sense of, and come to peace with, everything along the way, she began her work on the spiritual level. When she realized that the conditions of our outer world are just reflecting the conditions of humanity's inner world, her focus shifted to energy healing, arts, and yoga. Now a Spiritual Energy Coach, offering healing services and classes with Reiki, Yoga, Meditation and Breathwork, she supports others journeys to self-love, personal mastery, and light-motivated action: the recipe for global healing.

“Follow the calling of your heart, and life will rearrange to support you.” - Nikki

Kripalu translates into compassion; her class is just that. She guides with clarity and emphasis on simply honoring yourself and body where you are. Aligning breath with movement and inquiries on self, she teaches a yoga practice you can bring off your mat and into your day to day interactions. Making every second of the day a practice to be the best version of yourself. Stephanie incorporates a mix of Hatha, Yin and Vinyasa along with meridian activations, acupressure, and sound healing. She guides you through a journey back to yourself and into your innate wisdom and truth. Also Reiki Level 1 & 2 Certified, as well as a true Earth Steward she is a walking voice for our Earth.

Ally

My name is Ally and I am a yoga teacher and animal caretaker at Aguacate as well as a certified Reiki practitioner. My yoga practice is a relaxing hatha flow focused on connecting each movement with breath and truly tapping into our bodies and surroundings. I incorporate breathing and visualization exercises as well as dynamic and strengthening movements into my classes to create a well rounded practice that will leave you feeling connected and relaxed. Ally & Salim also teach Acro yoga. This type of yoga creates a safe container for play, connection, communication, and growth. Acro yoga is partner yoga with a base and a flier. It has a fun acrobatic side where we make awesome shapes as well as a relaxed as well as a therapeutic side where we lengthen and stretch the entire spine and back body. If you have a tight back, you will greatly benefit from Acro yoga. It might seem intimidating at first  but Acro is for all bodies! Great for friends, siblings or romantic partners, or come by yourself! You do not need to bring a partner to attend our class. Come tap into your inner child as you do things you never thought you could do and leave feeling happy and loose!

“Yoga, movement, and connection are my greatest passions.” - Ally
