A New Fitness Adventure

I am so happy to share the first of many columns for The Seattle Times. Today is the first day of my new fitness column, Fit For Life. When I left my reporting job in January 2011 to teach yoga, I had no idea if I would ever be back. This column is the perfect meld of two passions that have profoundly changed my life – writing and yoga. I’m excited to share my passions in Pacific Magazine and can’t wait to tackle fitness trends galore. Send me your ideas and definitely come play!

  1. So cool to see your article in the Times. I had no idea of your hidden talent in journalism.

    Yoga seems to have saved my athletic life. I was an avid tennis player, golfer, and softball player but had cut way back because of too many injuries to list. Not sure why yoga is not a part of professional sports team’s training. Seems like they have professional trainers, massage therapists, sometimes chiropractors, but no yoga teachers. My guess is that athlets would have longer careers with less injuries if they practiced yoga. Perhaps, Ichiro practices yoga but I can think of very few other athletes that do.

    Look forward to future articles on fitness trends.

    See you at 4 p.m. at Be Luminous.

    • Hi Jason!
      Great to see you here. I think more and more athletes are practicing yoga. I constantly hear about superstars who also practice, but of course all their names escape me. Still, it’s an amazing complement to any sport and especially for intense athletes.

      See you in class!


  2. Nicole,

    I am very happy that you have this blog & column in the times. Your classes have helped me on a spiritual level far beyond I could ever imagine capable. I hope others are as inspired, challenged & motivated as I have become with your class and others as well.

  3. I’m glad to have found your blog by way of the Sunday paper. Yoga is a big part of my life and hopefully, one day, I’ll find the time to take one of your classes. Namaste.
