Yoga with Nicolle   in Sennen, St Just, St Buryan and West Cornwall

About Nicolle

Hello my name is Nicolle, I teach yoga in the far south west of Cornwall, UK.

I came across the yogic path whilst living in the outskirts of London. I had a typical busy life, with some unkindly habits. I had become unwell, taking different medications and was suffering. Eventually a stand-in doctor at my local surgery suggested I come off all medication, try alternative supplements and find a yoga teacher.

This advice came to change my life. Thank you doctor, whoever you are.

After a few years of practice I decided to delve deeper and started a 4 year yoga teacher training course with Ruth and John White. I am thankful to of had these teachers, as not only was this a strong Iyengar inspired asana practice (which is what I need then), but they also encouraged their students to engage with the meditation and philosophy.  I was introduced to the Ishaya monks,  and though I no longer meet with the Ishaya’s I am grateful for this gentle, kind introduction to meditation.

My spiritual curiosity was invoked, I was reading The Power of Now by Ekhart Tolle, Patangalis Yoga Sutras (translated by MSI ishaya) and devouring books on Enlightenment and Yoga.

Yoga supported my move to Cornwall.  After a few years  I attended a retreat in Kerala, India, with Neville Cregan. I then attended many workshops and retreats with Nev, who is based in Totnes, Devon and I thank him greatly for not only his wonderful thai massages but more importantly his gentle flow yoga, which I now weave into my own classes.

In recent years I completed a Thai massage course with Emma Cayless, in Devon. I regularly attend breathwork classes with Anna De Vere, in Penzance. Plus further deep breathing workshops with Katie Trenere, here in West Penwith.

Through the power of online courses I play around with Natural Movement, Fascia Release, alongside strengthening, to meet the challenges of ageing, and support my journey with surfing in my 60’s.

My spiritual journey has led me to retreats both Adyashanti annd Mooji.  I now feel I have found a long term teacher in Unmani Hyde.

Yoga has changed my life, it’s shifted how I view the world, and it all started on the mat.  And although I sometimes feel like heading off in a different direction, I come back to yoga.

It’s all in that 1st Yoga Sutra, NOW the teaching of yoga (union).

I share this, not only for you to know my background, but to honour the guidance I have received with these wonderful teachers.

The ultimate teacher being life itself.



In classes Nicolle encourages people to explore and feel the postures, and to ask questions so that they may then start a regular home practice.

‘Nicolle has the amazing ability to hold a group of individuals with differing abilities yet leaving each individual feeling they have been supported to their personal limits’. C.H.

About This Site


Accessibility: This website meets reasonable accessibility standards so everyone can use it, including those who navigate without a mouse, and the blind and visually impaired. These groups are especially large users of the internet, and in the UK the Equality Act (EQA), formerly the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), requires web sites to offer reasonable accessibility. This means ensuring same or equivalent content is available to all, across different browsers, operating systems and screen sizes.

You can navigate from link to link on each page by clicking the Tab button on your keyboard, and you can resize text yourself, for example making it larger every time you click “Ctrl +” on your keyboard. The page layout here will still be usable with larger text, or even with smaller text if you want. Complete information on changing size and appearance for your own personal browser settings is available from the standards body W3C.

If you place your mouse at the top left of each page here you will find a “skip to content” link appears, which means someone who has an automated screen reader (to read aloud the page contents to them) does not have to listen to all the links again every time they visit a page.

Accessibility is objectively measured by standards set by W3C’s worldwide Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and also, based on that, the USA’s Section 508. WCAG sets three levels, A, AA and AAA, with all sites expected to meet at least the minimum level of A. Our site currently meets the higher level of AA and also USA Section 518, and you can easily check our site or anyone else’s with the following online testing tools:

  1. WCAG Accessibility Level A (minimum)
  2. WCAG Level AA, also A and AAA
  3. Section 508 (USA)
  4. Html Code Validity (W3)
  5. CSS Stylesheet Validity (W3)
  6. Adequate Colour Contrast
  7. Mobile Friendliness (W3)

In fact you may find that testing some major sites with these tools gives really surprising and even disappointing results.
