Jennifer Nicol, RHN
Jennifer was initially introduced to yoga over 10 years ago to complement and counter-balance weight training. It was during Jennifer’s training at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition that she fully learned the wealth of holistic health benefits yoga has to offer. As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, it is necessary to not only offer advice specifically related to nutrition but to also recommend clients include regular exercise, stress management, self-inquiry and meditation into their lifestyle. For these and many other reasons, Jennifer strongly recommends some form of yoga practice to many of her clients.
