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

About Nicolle

Nicolle Fisher is a qualified Karuna Yoga Teacher.  She holds a 500hr Yoga Alliance certificate, and is fully insured.  She trained with Ruth and John White, highly respected and long established teachers, who trained with BKS Iyengar in Puna, India and London.

Karuna is the Sanskrit word for compassion. Karuna Yoga is Hatha Yoga, and the focus is on Asana (postures) which develop strength, stamina, correct alignment, and flexibility. It also includes Pranayama (breath work), which not only teaches us correct breathing, but helps us to relax and start to experience Dharana (one pointed attention) and Dhyana (meditation).

It was not until her late thirties that Nicolle started attending yoga classes. She had always kept fit by attending the gym, swimming and walking, but was having breathing difficulties and digestive problems. It was her doctor that suggested yoga. She soon found that yoga not only helped with these physical issues, but also mentally. “Yoga supported and encouraged me to change my life”. She now incorporates all eight limbs of yoga into her daily life.

Nicolle encourages people to explore the postures, and to ask questions so that they may feel safe to start a 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.

If you find our site unsatisfactory or have noticed any accessibility issues here, please do contact us so we can improve. You can also report issues with other sites to Fix The Web.
