On The Mat with Nikki Martin
Episodes with music are only available on Spotify.
Nikki is a Yoga Teacher and Writer living on the east coast of Canada. Drawn by the power and magic of the ocean, she's lived there half her life, and though she enjoys escaping the cold and dark of winter, she's happiest at home. She teaches yoga full time, loves to lead retreats both at home and while travelling, and is passionate about helping her students find their own peace and presence; gifts yoga has given her over and over again. She's best known as a powerful teacher, guiding movement based classes with lots of breath where you'll have a chance to meet yourself in stillness, sometimes through struggle, sometimes in surrender. Her first novel, A Momentary Darkness, was released in 2018 and she hopes the next in her Awake While Dreaming trilogy will find its way to readers soon.

On The Mat Christa Janine Yoga Teacher
Episodes with music are only available on Spotify.
Christa Janine, 500hr RYT | 200hr E-RYT, is a health and wellness professional who has been teaching yoga since 2012. Since then she has launched a successful virtual fitness studio hosting private and sold-out group classes weekly, a life coaching business running group and individual programs, and several workshops for yoga study and business. As a life coach, Christa helps women heal from their past trauma and establish a self-designed narrative for their lives. As a yoga instructor & a digital fitness coach her main focus through social media, and business overall, is to encourage & empower others to live their most authentic lives by creating their own narrative for their futures. Additionally, Christa has navigated the yoga and fitness industry for over 8 years in many markets throughout North America and discovered a lack of diversity and inclusion. She experienced not only herself but fellow BIPOC being passed over for promotions, class times, and formats and being questioned about their teaching experience from students. Identifying as a change agent and an individual who believes in equality in all spaces, she now focuses energy on educating individuals and companies on the importance of Diversity & Inclusion in the yoga and fitness space.

On The Mat with Ericka Jones Philanthropist/Thought Leader/Yoga Teacher
Episodes with music are only available on Spotify.
Ericka comes from Lincoln, NE. This small quaint city sparked her curiosity to see what else was out there in the world. Chicago, STL, NYC, OH and now, Minneapolis, are all part of her journey that brought her to this moment right now. Being in Minneapolis, building a community, and standing in her truest self, knowing there's so much still ahead. What gets Ericka up in the morning is curiosity. The legacy she hopes to bring is one that she lived within integrity and aligned to her true intention. Her energy and zest for life inspires others to live empowered, bold lives, living into their purpose. Her legacy is creating a web of connection with people from different backgrounds.
