Ms. Nikki, Owner and Founder of Grace and Zen:
Hi! I'm Ms. Nikki. I opened Grace and Zen in 2015 with a hope to bring a fun and beneficial new concept to young children. The concept started with our brick and mortar studio in San Juan Capistrano, and has since expanded to mobile programs in the Inland Empire and San Francisco Bay Area in addition to our Orange County studio. I grew up as a dancer in the Bay Area, and found a love for the physical and mental healing aspects of yoga while recovering from a knee injury during college. After college I worked a bit as a dance teacher, a bit as a summer camp counselor, and a bit in the PR/Marketing fields. I graduated from Chico State University in 2009 with a BA in Public Relations and a Minor in Dance. I have a passion for teaching dance and yoga to children, and am so happy to be now sharing this passion with other Grace and Zen instructors, and so many children throughout California. I see first hand the benefits of yoga and dance for children, and am working hard to bring these benefits to as many children as possible.
