Nicki Doane

Born on the island of Cyprus in 1969 to diplomat parents, Nicki grew up traveling all over the globe. This instilled in her a wanderlust that eventually led her to India to study yoga in 1991. There she met Sri K Pattabhi Jois (Guruji), and she immediately knew she had found her teacher.

Nicki is an authorized Ashtanga Yoga teacher who began teaching yoga in 1992. Although rooted in Ashtanga Yoga, Nicki’s teaching goes beyond traditional. Her emphasis is on awareness: creating integrity within each pose that can be carried beyond the mat into daily life. She calls yoga a “life support system,” referring to her firm belief that yoga supports us in all the demands of modern life. Her classes combine meditation, asana, pranayama, philosophy, and poetry.

Nicki’s most influential yoga teachers include: Pattabhi Jois, Eddie Modestini, Gabriella Giubilaro, and Tim Miller. Once, Pattabhi Jois said to her, ‘You, yoga many lifetimes.’ This says it all. She is a dedicated practitioner and a creative, inspired teacher. See more photos and other events by this presenter

Eddie Modestini

A yogi since 1983, Eddie Modestini discovered yoga in the San Francisco Bay area. It was July of 1983 and Iyengar Yoga was his first experience with yoga, under teacher Gayna Uransky. He immediately began studying and became a certified Iyengar yoga teacher in a short time. Eddie was among the first certified teachers on the East Coast during a time when it was difficult to become certified.

In addition to Iyengar Yoga certification, Eddie possesses a high level of knowledge and experience with Ashtanga Yoga. He spent many years studying with Pattabhi Jois, and received a blessing to teach Ashtanga yoga.

Now, with decades of experiences teaching people from all walks of life, Eddie has an amazing eye for reading students’ bodies and is a master of yoga therapy. He teaches from the passionate belief that the powerful tradition of yoga can promote sustainability and healing for the individual’s modern way of life.
