Overview

Nicki Doane is an internationally celebrated yoga teacher from Maui, Hawaii. She is known for her attention to detail in asana practice and also for her accessible way of weaving the deeper philosophical teachings of the yoga sutras into her classes. Nicki teaches a style of yoga that draws on her extensive background in both Ashtanga and Iyengar yoga. She studied directly with Pattabhi Jois and the Iyengar family in India. Her classes are strong alignment based that are vinyasa in nature and deeply absorbing in both body and mind.

This week of yoga with Nicki is about slowing down and enjoying the end of summer together. To savor the pace of a summer day and to delight in the bounty of the summer harvests to fill ourselves up for the coming months. It’s a perfect time to relax and renew before the busy seasons of Fall and Winter set in. We will have a stronger yoga practice in the morning and a more mellow session in the evening. I am excited because this hotel has several designated yoga spaces on the property and lots of yoga props!! Restorative yoga and pranayama in the evenings for sure.
So, take this time for yourself or with a friend and come to Greece with Nicki to practice yoga, share meals, lounge on the beach, swim in the sea, get a spa treatment, meditate overlooking the ocean, and soak up the beautiful Grecian sun.

See you on the island of Amorgos, Greece in September 2022.

NICKI DOANE

Nicki Doane is an internationally recognized yoga teacher, known for her ability to make the practice of yoga accessible to every body. She began her study of yoga at the age of 18 while attending the University of Massachusetts. From her first class, she knew she had found something special and deeply familiar. While she began to practice yoga on a purely physical plane and because it felt good, it became apparent some years later that there was more to Yoga than she originally thought. In 1991, Nicki traveled to Mysore, India to study with Sri K Pattabhi Jois, the master of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. She fell in love with the practice and continued her studies with Pattabhi Jois until his death in 2009. What she experienced on that first trip was a radical realization that yoga is much more than a physical practice. The yoga affected her deeply on an emotional and spiritual level. After that, she was hooked! As she delved deeper into the Ashtanga practice she became curious about her teacher’s teacher and his lineage. She learned that Tirumalai Krishnamacharya had been Pattabhi Jois’ teacher and also the teacher of BKS Iyengar. This led her to study Iyengar Yoga with Mr. Iyengar, his children and with many of his senior teachers as well including Gabriella Giubilaro and Patricia Walden, at his institute in Pune, India. Nicki has always believed that her practice continued to grow and evolve due to her study and practice of both of these systems of Yoga. Nicki continues to study yoga with senior teachers and believes that a great teacher must always remain a dedicated student.

Nicki’s teaching has grown out of her practice and her deep faith in yoga and she chooses to honor her students as individuals first and foremost. Nicki’s style combines asana, pranayama, philosophy, and poetry and her classes are strong and accessible to everyone. Nicki uses humor in her teaching to set her students at ease and she is considered to be very relatable and down to earth. She is known as a Teacher’s teacher and loves igniting the spark of yoga in her students.

Nicki lives on the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii, where she owns and directs the Maya Yoga Studio on the North Shore of Maui. She has been featured in numerous articles and has graced the cover of Yoga Journal magazine. She is featured in 2 Ashtanga Yoga videos available through Gaiam and in 9 videos entitled Maya Yoga Vinyasa on her youtube channel. She is currently finishing a book on Yoga for beginners.

Nicki teaches workshops and teacher training courses at her studio on Maui and travels all over the world conducting workshops, teacher trainings, and retreats.
