Nicole Zaccaria (Cole)
If it's not, it's not with Cole
Cole has been a life-long athlete & a yoga practitioner since 2002. While working & living in NYC as a designer for Victoria’s Secret, she received her RYT200h Vinyasa Flow yoga certification from the prominent NYC yoga studio, Sonic Yoga, under the direction of Lauren Hana & Johanna Bell.
Cole’s approach to Vinyasa Flow uses Hatha yoga poses with calisthenics movement (think: pose/counterpose pulsations) using your own body weight to create a cardiovascular, muscle strengthening workout in a breath-led, rhythmic, transition-based vinyasa cycle. We work hard but laugh harder. Cole’s philosophy: “If it’s not fun, don’t bother”.
Cole hopes to bring forth a few goals during her classes with the help of some Kali/Shiva energy: 1/ act in spite of fear, reclaim your power, & learn how to play again 2/ destroy limited thinking, negative self-image and mental barriers 3/ exhaust the body to rest longer with ease in peace and silence
Cole has been active in studying a multitude of practices in the yoga community including Budokon with Cameron Shayne, Radiant Body Yoga with Kia Miller, AyurYoga (created by Vasant Lad) with Maria Garre and Forrest Yoga with Ana Forrest. Apart from yoga, Cole maintains her creative roots as a freelance illustrator specializing in humorous adult comics, logos, & children's books.
