Nicole Gayatri

Creator of Yonicise, RYT 200 Yoga Teacher, Founder of The Perfect Space: Lifestyle Design Mentor

Nicole’s passion and purpose is to support, motivate, and inspire other to live their own version of The Perfect Space.  She believes in the power of meditation, movement, and mentoring to cultivate a deeper connection to your own divine path, innate gifts, and talents, to make the world a better place.

Nicole moved to Dominical from NYC in January of 2013 and is overjoyed to be living artfully each day with the staff and travelers at Danyasa.  Her mission is to live every moment with love and compassion, a sense of wonder and shiny playfulness.   

Her voracious desire for movement and expression has led her to study a wide variety of dance styles in this lifetime.  She graduated with a B.A. in Performing Arts (Summa Cum Laude) in 2004 from SUNY New Paltz. Nicole has over 20 year experience dancing with top choreographers, competing internationally, and working as a teacher, performer, and choreographer.  Many of her teachers and contemporaries can be seen on the TV shows “So You Think You Can Dance,” and “Dancing With The Stars,” or performing on Broadway.

Integrating yoga into her life around 2000, Nicole studied intensely with several Gurus both on and off the mat, and around the world. She received her 200 hour Yoga Alliance RYT through the teachings of Tantra Yoga and Anusara.  Her love of meditation, mantras, and chakra energy, inspired her to integrate her knowledge of movement in the body and alignment principles; which led her to create her own unique style of teaching.  She offers Shakti Flow and Optimal Alignment yoga classes, guiding students to cultivate stronger foundations in their practice, to flourish in new ways.

In 2007 Nicole founded The Perfect Space. As a Lifestyle Design Mentor she helps clients align with their true passions and bring them to life. She offers online and in-person coaching; aiding clients to embody their ultimate dream-life. 

Through a profound personal practice in 2015, playing off of her Unleash Your Inner Goddess Workshops, Nicole created Yonicise: an erotic dance workout for women to inspire self-love, and appreciation for the magic within our bodies.  Yonicise encourages the awakening of Divine feminine womb wisdom, to release old stories, and express this energy fully through sensual, Kundalini-connected movement.
