Nicki Doane

Nicki Doane had a wanderlust that led her to Mysore, India, in 1991 to study yoga under Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Doane started teaching in 1992. She cites Pattabhi Jois, along with Eddie Modestini, Gabriella Giubilaro and Tim Miller, among her most influential teachers. She is an authorized teacher of Ashtanga yoga. Although rooted in Ashtanga, Doane's teaching goes beyond the traditional. Her Vinyasa classes combine asana, pranayama, philosophy and poetry. Doane’s emphasis is on awareness - creating integrity within each pose that can be carried beyond the mat and into daily life. Doane teaches at yoga studios and conferences across the globe and is featured in two Ashtanga Yoga DVDs from Gaiam. She recently produced her own series of Maya Yoga DVDs in collaboration with her husband, Eddie Modestini. She and Eddie live in Sebastopol, California, and together they co-direct Maya Yoga Studios in both California and Maui.
