Nikki discovered yoga in 1999 in Atlanta, GA, while teaching Pilates at a local studio. As an ex ballet and modern dancer, she was immediately drawn into the physical and demanding nature of the practice, and after moving to Boulder, she completed Richard Freeman’s 200 hour Ashtanga yoga teacher training at the Yoga Workshop in 2005. Always craving more knowledge, she then went on to complete numerous other teacher trainings, receiving 400+ hours with CorePower Yoga (Power, Hot and Yin) and then another 300 hours in Integrated Vinyasa with Gina Caputo at the Colorado School of Yoga. Nikki’s flow classes are moderately paced, fun and light-hearted, and are appropriate for all levels. She’s known for building her classes to a safe yet challenging peak pose, always warming the body up adequately and allowing each student to work to their appropriate edge.
After experiencing a serious neck injury and living in pain for close to 8 years, Nikki discovered Kaiut Yoga and has never looked back. It completely healed her neck in ways doctors never could, and because of that, she has since dedicated most of her time and energy getting as much training in this life changing method as possible. She has been teaching Kaiut since 2018, and has seen unbelievable results in people of all ages, abilities and circumstances. She will be participating in additional advanced training this summer, as her goal is to share this method with everyone and anyone who wants to live their best life!
In addition to teaching yoga full time, Nikki also has her Masters Degree in Holistic Nutrition, and when she’s not teaching, you will find her spending time with her family (which includes husband Matt, daughter Dylan, 4 dogs and 1 cat!), cooking (and eating!), and shopping in any thrift store she can find!

Hey y’all! Hayley here. I am a Yoga Instructor, Healer, Shamaness, Cacao Priestess, and Physical Therapist Assistant. My journey started 15 years ago with yoga and has led me to where I am today. I absolutely love helping people heal the body, mind and spirit through movement and energy work. It is my life’s passion.
My career as a Physical Therapist Assistant has taught me so much about healing the physical body and due to this experience, I have a much deeper understanding of how the emotional and spiritual components affect the healing process within the body. There truly is a deep relationship between body, mind and spirit.
In my yoga classes, I love to combine flow with breathwork and intention; flow to glow! Play is a big part of my life; so, there will be moments of play and experimentation in my classes, as well.
Off the mat, I love connecting with nature, backpacking, and leading ceremonies. I am also a proud plant-mom and amiteure herbalist. I spend a good amount of time concocting fun blends and smelling yummy herbs.
Thank you so much for being a part of this journey with me. Big love to you!
Felicia Romero Scott
Felicia was looking for a workout to help better control the high & low glucose levels in her bloodstream from having Type 1 Diabetes. She tried her first Heated Vinyasa Yoga class and immediately noticed a huge difference physically, mentally, and spiritually.
She wanted to share the benefits of yoga and deepen her own practice, so she enrolled in YTT200 to help others find a sense of contentment, self awareness and mind body connection on their mat.
Felicia finds immense love and inspiration in teaching and seeing students discover their own personal yoga journey and enjoys nurturing and encouraging them along the way.
She consistently continues her education and just recently graduated her YTT300 with Jonny Kest.
She is proud to be apart of the Rocky Mountain Pilates and Yoga community, in hopes to grow and share the life changing benefits of yoga.
During her free time , you will find Felicia hanging out with her hubby and adult children, SUPing on a lake, hiking a trail, practicing yoga in her garden, or most likely taking her dog, Bruno, aka, “The Sweetest Dog Ever”, for a swim at the lake.

It’s a lighthearted fun bootcamp yoga where Eric applies his years of experience and is doing the practice with you.

It’s going to be challenging and savasana is going to feel amazing at the end!
