Her love of pilates increased as she personally experienced the benefits while recovering from surgeries. Nicole is amazed to see how the body adapts and evolves and is inspired by all forms of movement. She believes that exploring movement as a daily practice leads to longevity of one's physical and mental health. Initially a student of STOTT Pilates® and Dianne Miller Pilates, it was the Pilates Process Method where Nicole found a deep connection to a method that she was inspired to teach. Nicole is honoured to have been certified by the Pilates Process ™ Vancouver Studio. Outside of working with the body, Nicole runs an international lighting design competition.
