Yoga: Curvy Yoga with Nichi

Curvy Yoga by Moving Mountains Yoga

Class Title: Curvy Yoga

Class Time: Thursdays, 5:30-6:30pm (starting in March), Saturdays 8-9am (Starting April)

Class Description:

Are you interested in yoga, but worry it’s not right for you? Have you been hesitant to explore yoga in a studio setting? Are you curious about self-acceptance or body positivity, but don’t know how to make it real? Join me for Curvy Yoga in Eugene, OR! We’ll explore how to use props and strategies to practice yoga with the body you have today. At the same time, we’ll learn how to use mindful inquiry to connect to our bodies and their needs. Through this compassionate approach, you’ll develop the tools you need to find a greater sense of connection with your mind, body, and Self. After suffering two decades of body shame, Yoga offered me a path to acceptance and I am eager to share it with others. Beginners welcome, no toe-touching required!

Mats are available to borrow. There is limited parking available onsite behind the building, and plenty of street parking on Willamette or 19th.

Teacher Bio:

Nichi believes that Yoga offers profound medicine for healing the body, mind, and spirit. Having experienced this healing potential herself, she is called to offer it to others. Nichi offers trauma-informed, size-inclusive and body affirming yoga practice that is grounded in Ayurveda, neuro-science, and Social Justice. Nichi’s classes honor the sacred tradition of Yoga and often weave in elements of pranayama, meditation, philosophy, and chanting. Utilizing the healing tools of Yoga, we will explore together the potential for dropping out of your thinking mind and into your body, which is a path so many of us have been conditioned to avoid. 

Nichi is particularly interested in offering this practice to people who may otherwise feel uncomfortable walking into a yoga studio. People living in big bodies and/or identifying as a member of a marginalized community, as well as those working in social justice for the betterment of our shared humanity are strongly encouraged to offer themselves self-care and nurturing through Moving Mountains Yoga. 

Nichi also lives with a chronic illness/chronic pain condition and serves people seeking relief or acceptance through Yoga. Nichi graduated from Sarahjoy Marsh’s 200 hr amrita and Social Justice teacher trainings, and holds a Curvy Yoga certification. It is with the support of and gratitude for her teachers and her teachers’ teachers, that Nichi lovingly serves in the path of Karma Yoga.
