Nicole Renee Matthews


Nicole is delighted to cultivate community as the manager of Charym. When she first joined Charym - new to Litchfield, pregnant and awaiting the birth of her son - she felt bolstered by the support she received from her fellow students. Nicole was inspired to pursue yoga teacher training in 2011 after several years studying and practicing ahimsa and mindfulness. Nicole completed her 200 hour Ashtanga Vinyasa certificate with Michele Fife in Grand Rapids, Michigan. During this course, she studied anatomy with orthopedic surgeon and student of B.K.S. Iyengar, Ray Long. Nicole has completed over 100 additional hours of yoga training since then, including an Immersion with Mimi Ray. She recently completed a bachelors of science from Western Michigan University focused on addiction counseling and holistic health and is certificated in trauma informed yoga through Street Yoga. Students in Nicole's Vinyasa Flow can expect a fun and enthusiastic exploration of the gross anatomy of the human body to enliven the subtle energy bodies.
