Nicky Grimsdale

Yoga 213 senior teacher, Nicky Grimsdale, began his journey of yoga in 2007 practicing Iyengar yoga, which gave him a deep insight into anatomical alignment. Whilst living in India, he completed a 200 hour YTT course at Oceanic Yoga in Goa where he grew a passion for pranayama and meditation. Nicky began his teaching career adjusting students in classes. It was through this experience that he developed an appreciation for the unique needs of each student.

Yogis love Nicky's classes for his creative, challenging sequencing and his ability to bring students attention back to the breath and body. For Nicky, sharing yoga and affecting other's lives in a positive way is as humbling as it gets. And with a practice that is lovely to watch, Nicky injects new life and inspiration into every class he leads.

Nicky is now one of Melbourne’s top teacher trainers and was the lead teacher on our 2016, 100 hour YTT course.
