For the past 24 years, Nicole Clark has followed her passion for understanding the human body — its anatomy, movement, and healing abilities — into multiple disciplines: yoga and meditation, bodywork, craniosacral therapy, dance, and visual art.
Nicole studied and practiced yoga for eleven years in New York and Los Angeles, exploring Vinyasa, Jivamukti, Hatha, Sivananda, and Bikram before discovering Forrest Yoga. She trained extensively with Ana Forrest, completing the intensive foundation training in 2002 and immediately going on to teach at the Forrest Yoga Circle in Los Angeles. Nicole quickly earned a reputation for her elegant sequences, hands-on adjustments, working with injuries, and holding a safe space for every student.
Pursuing deeper knowledge of anatomy and the healing arts, Nicole studied at length with Ellen Heed and Dr. Vincent Medici in the areas of pain and orthopedic evaluation, core sequencing, energetics, and healing bodywork. From there she went on to study Visionary Craniosacral Work for nine years with Hugh Milne, founder of the Milne Institute. Nicole has also studied aerial pole for four years with accomplished yogi and choreographer Rie Katagiri, with whom she learned to move with a fluid balance of lightness and strength.
Nicole has channeled her experience and passion into myriad classes and workshops on both coasts and as far away as Hong Kong and Singapore, including her highly successful Power of Touch workshops and Juicy Yoga classes. She uses her teachings to create a powerful healing space through the art of sequencing, breathwork, self awareness and self exploration to liberate the body and spirit. Nicole encourages every student to unlock the unlimited possibilities that yoga has to offer both on and off the mat.
Keep it simple: Slow down and feel your body. Savor the movement; savor the breath. Let go of struggle and dive deep.—Nicole Clark
