The studio is owned by Nichole Taylor, a Monmouth resident, 200 hr RYT yoga instructor and ACE certified Personal Trainer who has been in the fitness industry for over 10 years. Nichole holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology from Oregon State University and graduated in June of 1991. In 2004 she left an 11 year career in neuroscience research at the University of Texas medical school in Houston to pursue fitness full time. Family and the beauty of the pacific northwest eventually brought her and her husband back to the Willamette Valley in 2006.
Located next to Ma Mere\’s Bed & Breakfast at 220 Knox St. N., Nichole describes the studio as \”a place for healing and taking time out from hectic lifestyles\”. Inside the French doors of this spacious carriage house, is a warm, naturally-lit, and fully equipped studio with mats, blankets, blocks and straps without the thumping music, mirrors, clanking weights and buzz of cardio machines that you’ll find in a gym or health club. Nichole is currently offering a variety of yoga classes geared toward all ages and abilities as well as one-on-one personal training in a calm and spa-like private studio. Nichole\’s vision is to offer a space where everyone can explore their own \”new beginning\” and experience the joy of living in a strong, balanced body with a clear and focused mind.
Nichole recently took up running and completed her first half-marathon and wants everyone to know it’s never too late to reinvent yourself!
