Niche Faulkner

I am an African dancing, diversity focused, free-spirited peacock who lives my life on and off my mat by the Xhosa principle of “Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu”. Simply stated, it is the belief that “a person is a person through persons” and that we are bonded through common humanity and oneness.

As a teacher, I am an advocate for yoga as an essential tool in the building of community, personal transformation and self care. It is my intention to be a stand for the underrepresented, especially those who do not fit the traditional standard of yoga including body image, ethnicity and socio-economic status.

Outside of the studio you can find me teaching West African dance, spending time with my son, laughing from my gut and living my life unapologetically and free.
