Nicki Doane

Teaching across the world, Nicki Doane is a certified Ashtanga yoga teacher. Although rooted in Ashtanga, Doane's classes combine asana, pranayama, philosophy and poetry.

Her emphasis is on mindfulness - creating integrity within each pose that can be carried beyond the mat into daily life.

In 1991, Nicki Doane took an excursion to Mysore, India ito study yoga under Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Soon thereafter, in 1992, Doane started teaching upon her return. She studies Pattabhi Jois under Eddie Modestini, Gabriella Giubilaro and Tim Miller.

Nicki Doane teaches around the globe in yoga studios and conferences, and has been featured in two Ashtanga Yoga DVDs from Gaia. She and her husband, Eddie Modestini, live in Seabastopel, CA and work closely together. Together, they produced her own series of Maya Yoga DVDs and co-direct Maya Yoga Studios in both California and Maui.
