My name is Nickie Short and I teach yoga on the Isle of Wight. I have lived on the Island for 16 years with my family and love dog walking, swimming in the sea and sharing this wonderful part of the world with my husband and friends.
Since leaving school I have spent 30 plus years working with people with a wide range of physical and mental health problems, learning difficulties, physical disabilities and those who are generally finding life challenging. I have been practising yoga for 30 years and teaching for almost 20. When working with groups or individuals I take time to determine where they are now, where they want to be and how helping them work through the challenges from A to B. Although everyone is different there are many common themes: people lack awareness of their physical needs, lack self confidence, want to find some ‘peace’ or contentment, want to feel less stressed, get anxious, experience pain (physical and emotional) and lack of sleep to varying degrees.
I currently run teacher training courses for yoga teachers, hold regular retreats, run weekly general classes on the Island, carry out regular one2one appointments and teach yoga for recovery for individuals and organisations.
