I have completed the first year of massage therapy & 1000 hours at the Alberta Institute of Massage located in Red Deer, Alberta. I am currently studying to complete the second year and the 2200 hours required for massage therapy. I have also been certified in Hot Stone Massage Therapy. I realized quite early that I loved to help people feel better and assist in easing their pain. I found it fascinating to learn about the anatomy and physiology of the human body. Our bodies are so amazing and intricately designed. It didn't take me long to see I have found my calling. It is very rewarding to be able to connect with so many different people in a trusting and open-minded atmosphere. I am very excited about the path my life will take, the skills I will learn along the way and the people I will meet being a part of the natural health industry.
What is Hot Stone Massage?
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones. They are often basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well. The heat is both deeply relaxing and helps tight muscles release.
At the start of a hot stone therapy, smooth water-heated basalt stones are carefully applied to key points on the body. This direct heat relaxes the muscles, which means that the massage itself is more effective and intense than it would be otherwise. The size of the stones varies, according to which part of the body they're being used on. Oil is smoothed gently onto the body, and each stone in turn can be worked along by the therapist's hands.

Yin Yoga Class Description:
Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice.
Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.
Nikki Henriksen has over a 1000 hours of yoga training. She has also studied Holistic Nutrition and Thai massage. She is currently enrolled at MHViscars in their Registered Massage Therapy Program. Over the last 11 years Nikki has been an active part of the Edmonton yoga community teaching at a variety of yoga studios.
Elenna is a long time yogini, with yoga training from India as well as Canada and the US. She is a certified Iridologist trained in nutrition, herbology, homeopathy and natural health. She brings much love to her students at every studio, with a wealth of knowledge of the whole body and being.
