Nicole Schaefer-McDaniel

Born: Mannheim, Germany

Guiltless pleasures: horseback riding across the Mongolian steppe, traveling with my family, chocolate croissants, cooking, getting lost in a good book.

Why yoga: I discovered my love for yoga while living in Mongolia and soon found myself jumping into teacher training. Yoga allows me to escape the craziness of life by allowing myself to slow down, listen to my body, and find grounding. I love how I feel after a yoga practice.

Certifications: Namaste Yoga School Mongolia 200-hour YTT, Restorative Yoga with Tara Lemerise

Nicole Schaefer-McDaniel instructs the following:
  • Lunch
  • Suitable for all. Refill your vessel in this yoga class with just enough vigor to stimulate and invigorate without depleting. You can expect backbends, twists, and easy movement. You will probably leave feeling hungry, so bring a snack or take advantage of a nearby cafe afterwards.
