"I was an on again off again yoga student for a couple years till I found....Nichol Chase...she is such an incredible teacher and the first one I really connected with that had me coming back for more every week. I loved her intensity and she showed me that I was capable of doing things I never in a million years would've dreamed I could do. Broken down step by step, seemingly impossible things all of a sudden become possible (great metaphor in life too!)"
"The breathing exercises have really helped me in my voice lessons. This class helped me also to link my breath and my movements in a more synchronistic way."
"This course has not only improved my breathing abilities as a musician, but has also helped me through some really difficult weeks. It allowed me to focus on something else besides my crazy life!"
She's amazing! Practicing with her has transformed my practice in a few short months. She's not only an expert in asana, but she brings a powerful energy to her practice -- she leads by example.
Nichol Chase is an incredibly talented yoga instructor. I have learned so much from Nichol and I have seen great progress and growth with myself because of Nichol's instruction and guidance. Though Nichol's personal practice and abilities are impressive to say the least, she is so warm, approachable, and friendly. It is clear she takes great pride in seeing her students succeed and try new things. Nichol's classes are thoughtful, intelligent, exciting, and fun, and her instructions are clear and specific. Her passion for yoga and teaching is always apparent, and she brings so much knowledge and creativity to every class. I am very lucky to call Nichol my teacher!
Nichol is an incredibly knowledgeable and inspiring yoga instructor. She is able to get you to move past your own barriers with ease and help you find and continue to set new limits for your practice. My practice has improved exponentially since I started taking her class regularly
Nichol is a great yoga teacher and a yoga nerd. I have taken her advanced and mixed level classes. In mixed level classes she gives plenty of options for various level students, carefully monitors alignment, and looks out for students' safety. Her advanced level classes usually are geared toward getting a specific pose; she usually practices with students. She is awesome in both formats, I recommend you give her a try. Added bonus - she is incredible in back bends (not just doing them, teaching them too); if you happen on a back bend class, you will see some astonishing demos. Did I forget to mention she sings too? You get some darn good Opera during savasana.
Nichol's teaching gives you an experience that deserves attention. What I like best is the way she prepares your mind to take on the most challenging pose. She allows me to build the confidence I need to explore a deeper practice without compromising injury. 90 minutes of mat with Nichol is so worth it.
Nichol is honestly the best yoga teacher I have ever studied under. She is comprehensive in her approach to class so instead of just yoga pose after yoga pose, a student gets an intense class that leads to improvement of ones practice in many levels.
Nichol is an exceptional teacher. Her classes are precise, accessible, logical, and always challenge you to go further than you did before, in a safe way. Not too serious and not too silly, always fun and inspiring, she always warms you up properly before inviting you down an asana path you might not have thought you wanted to go down. I am a very fussy student and I know what I'm talking about. Plus, there's always a lovely serenade during savasana!
Nichol Joy Chase is aptly named because she brings Joy to every class. The poses she goes after may seem hard to achieve until you are in the middle of class and you realize you are actually doing it! The knowledge she brings and instills in her students is very rare. I leave class not only knowing that I made progress in my own practice but that I learned something along the way. Nichol is not a yoga instructor she is a yoga teacher and the true difference is seen when I go home and realize she taught me how to get back into the advanced poses she demo'd all on my own.
Studying privately with Nichol has transformed my yoga practice. Having one on one attention from her allows us to really drill down on proper form and technique. Our sessions are always different and interesting and she is always thinking of new things for me to try when I am traveling to keep my practice going. She is a bright spot in my week.
Since starting private yoga classes with Nichol my practice has changed dramatically for the better. Nichol has created a customized program based on my unique needs. She demonstrates an in-depth knowledge of yoga terminology, poses, flows, as well as body mechanics. Through her guidance I have been able to overcome challenges and learned to do poses I never thought possible. Best of all, I feel better than I have in years!
