Nick has a deep understanding of how yoga can heal, as he battled mental health issues and degenerative disc disease, causing turmoil in his life and severe pain in his body. Nick found solace on his mat and knew he had to share his experience, in the same way he shares his nursing skills with his patients. He decided in early 2017 that he wanted to combine his experience with western medicine and eastern healing and philosophy and founded M3Yoga.
Nick hails from the DC metro area where he has lived most of his life. He is a Registered Nurse and began his career at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD working in the Cardiovascular ICU, taking care of postoperative patients after heart surgery. He later transitioned into emergency medicine, surgery, and substance abuse treatment.
He has a passion for anatomy and physiology and has studied under the top medical professionals in the world at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He believes having a detailed understanding of the physical body and how it operates at a cellular level enhances your ability to practice and instruct yoga.
Nick has been practicing yoga for nearly seven years and completed his 200hr teacher training at Rubber Soul in Athens, GA. Nick teaches and has trained in a variety of styles of yoga and is currently pursuing his 500hr certification through Asheville Yoga Center.
He is registered with Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT, which shows that he has demonstrated enough skill level to be considered an “expert”. This certification level enables him to train and teach other instructors.
Nick is also a Certified Rocket Yoga Instructor after completing his 60hr training with Amber Gean Espelage in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2017. Ask him about his passion for Rocket Yoga and the Larry Schultz philosophy.
