Nikki Palma


When I was 6 years old my mother tried to teach me to meditate. She asked me to be still and keep repeating the same word in my mind. Instead of reaching “enlightenment” I…fell asleep. It finally clicked for me many years later while lying in savasana on a borrowed yoga mat. For a decade I had been struggling with chronic pain I didn’t understand, and no one seemed able to diagnose. Meditation brought a bit of ease into my body, but the greater shift happened in my mind. Suddenly my body and I were partners rather than adversaries. Years, and several diagnoses later my yoga reaches far beyond the four corners of my mat. I’ve learned to access the “after yoga” feeling of calm in different ways. Along the way I also discovered a deep passion for teaching. As you get to know me, you’ll learn I’m part goofball and part overprotective Italian nonna. I can’t wait to meet you!
