Testimonials

I simply love my classes with Nicole. She is very nice, competent and guides you with a loud and clear voice. She offers great flows, essential oils, meditations and calm relaxing music. After her Yin Yoga class, I’m always completely relaxed, healed and in Zen. She always ends the class with a super nice meditation while you relax. You often chant mantras with her, and she often talks about how the poses help to balance the your chakras. Each class is a different challenge, good for relaxing and calming down. The use of essential oil is good too and you’ll sleep great afterwards. Her Vinyasa Flow class is also super cool with focus on breath. She always tells you not to do more then what your body can and gives you an alternative rest position if the positions are too challenging. Nicole is an inspiration for me and you can truly feel her passion for yoga.

Nicole is a very passionate and dedicated yoga instructor. I love the fact that she combines her yoga classes with essential oils. Every class she hand picks different a aromatic essential oil that is in-sync with the yoga moves. She expertly modifies the moves every session so you get to try different moves and puts up a fun challenge towards the end. After a long day of office work, her classes are a big source of relaxation and calm for me. Thank you Nicole!

I had Nicole for private lessons in the stunning Hunter Valley wine country in New South Wales, Australia. She was a phenomenal teacher and took the flow at a really helpful pace for a amateur like me. Nicole incorporated great tunes, breathing and mixed level of intensity for the session. Her teaching style is helpful, supportive, yet challenging. Thanks Nicole – I can’t wait to get more private classes from you when I visit California!

I’m enjoying Nicole’s classes at the Villas of Renaissance for the last few months. She has her own style, making her sessions unique, but also calm, comfortable, welcoming and beneficial for health.

I was so excited that my daughter Nicole started teaching yoga online because I had never taken her class since we live in different parts of CA. Because of her clear instruction of the poses and the relaxing breathing techniques, I was able to fully relax and let go. I have also used these breathing techniques with my granddaughter and its made bed time a pleasure instead of a challenge. She taught us to make all our muscles go limp, starting at our feet and going up to our head, while doing the deep breathing. I could always tell when she was sound asleep when her little arm would flop across my tummy. This is a great practice for anyone with young children that have a hard time falling asleep. Looking forward to her next online class!

Just took Nicole Turner’s Vinyasa Flow class on YouTube and loved it! An hour long, but went by quickly and challenged muscles I don’t use often. Would definitely recommend!

I want to let you know how much I appreciate you helping out our law firm.  When I heard our firm was going to offer corporate yoga, I must admit I was not very interested. At the time, I had never attended a single yoga session.  I went to your first class with an open mind and loved it! Your SUP yoga class is also so much fun, and recommend that to those who love the water and want to work on their balancing skills. With your help, after sessions I felt more relaxed, less stressed and helped me keep a positive outlook on life in general. I will continue to recommend your services to others!

Nicole Turner is an excellent yoga teacher, whom I would highly recommend for either one of her private classes or for one of her group classes around San Diego. She is very easy to follow in class, gives clear and concise instructions, is very knowledgeable, and is great with giving variations to poses and postures according to your practice level. You also get some added bonus’s such as essential oils, if you want, and a guided meditation during class. All this makes for an outstanding, top of the line yoga experience.

So far I’ve had 3 private sessions with Nicole in her home in the past month. Prior to these sessions, I had tried several yoga classes all around San Diego, but was not a fan. I told her about my apprehension and that I wasn’t that interested, but she convinced me that the teacher and style is what matters. She was right and I am so happy I listened! The Hatha style Nicole introduced me to immediately resonated with me. I absolutely loved it. Nicole is very knowledgeable and guided me through some beautiful experiences. Nicole is truly living her passion and it shows in her teaching style. She also incorporated essential oils, which made the experience even better. I am slowly but surely becoming a regular. I highly recommend Nicole Turner Yoga!

Nicole’s Friday Yin class is fantastic! It was a great combination of sustained stretch and restorative type poses sprinkled with a few more challenging poses and a pranayama. I really enjoy the mindfulness aspect to her classes and her use of essential oils is an added bonus. Nicole also plays really great music that fits the tone of the class beautifully. The last Friday class I went to gave me that perfect mind and energetic reset that I needed! As someone who’s done a fair bit of yoga I always get something out of a class I go to, but I really tend to get that extra special deep reset that we all seek from Nicole’s classes. If you’re anything like me you will walk away from her classes with a sense of ease, peace, and relaxation.

Nicole’s yoga instruction is incredible. She is so knowledgeable about the history, philosophy, mind and body practices, and more. You can tell she really walks her talk. Each class has so many health benefits, plus you learn more about history and deeper meaning in the practice. She is also a stellar human being. Don’t miss her classes!

Jen B.

I have taken two online yoga classes so far from Nicole during the COVID-19 quarantine and the classes have been super helpful in connecting with other humans in real-time and receiving the stress-and-anxiety-relieving benefits of yoga! These stress relieving benefits are super important during this time, especially since reducing stress can boost immune systems. I have taken Nicole’s classes in person and am grateful that Nicole is teaching online now, her classes are great!

Jen B.

From someone who used to teach yoga, I can say without a doubt that Nicole is an excellent yoga teacher and I wish I’d found her sooner! She’s incredibly professional, knowledgeable and takes continuing education in the wellness field to be a solid resource to her students. Her voice is calming and informative, I never felt confused with her instructions and it was easy to follow along, even in difficult poses. I’ve taken both her Yin (restorative) and Vinyasa classes – both are exceptional!  Give yourself the gift of yoga and experience a safe, wonderful practice with the guidance of Nicole.

I took Yoga classes with Nicole Turner through my place of employment for about a year and LOVED IT! As someone that has done Yoga in the past, I enjoyed her specific way of teaching the class. She’s interactive, she always has a great attitude and is willing to answer any questions. What I loved the most is that she asked & listened to what our group wanted and needed. Working in an office from 8-5 can be very mentally & physically draining, so we asked if we could do meditative yoga more often, and it was the best! She always came prepared with her soothing essential oils, blocks and even introduced us to singing bowls. Let me tell you that when she used that singing bowl along with the oils and guided meditation, a lot of us would completely knock out from how relaxed we became. It was also nice that she always taught us different positions just in case some of us weren’t capable of certain movements or stretches. Overall, Nicole is an amazing instructor and would recommend her to anyone that is either a beginner or an advanced Yogi. She’s passionate about her craft, and she makes everyone feel welcome no matter what!

Nicole’s Yin Yoga class on Friday is great! Challenging, yet a great low impact workout. Nicole, the instructor, does an amazing job! I was relaxed and rejuvenated and felt like I was walking on clouds as I left. Great for Friday nights (especially after a long week). Accessing Nicole’s breath & depth of knowledge in asanas, chakras and breath work – is the icing on the cake. I’d like to check her schedule to see if she teaches yoga elsewhere in the La Jolla/Pacific Beach area. Can’t wait to walk on clouds again!

Nicole is an amazing teacher and individual! She did several personal sessions at my home in Australia. She was able to identify our physical and emotional challenges to get the best of each session. She expanded me both as a writer, she opened up another dimension to my world to allow for open thought, and stretched me physically past my arthritic barriers. Love her and only wish I now was close by to continue the journey!

Yoga that offers physical and mental fitness to the level of your ability. Nicole offers a variety of disciplines (I have attended vinyasa and yin) and she keeps things fresh by changing flows and has monthly focus on different focal points of the body, blending in verbal notes and music to go along with the theme. Attending the class has helped me develop physical strength as well as relieve the stresses of working in a demanding corporate culture.

It’s been a great experience beginning my yoga journey with Nicole. During our private sessions, she helps keep me centered and the classes are reinvigorating. She has been an inspiration on my journey into yoga and has helped to unite my mind and body with a direction towards becoming one and finding relaxation and movement away from the daily stress of life. Thank you for your dedication, energy, warmth and instruction to yoga and the meaningful transition it brings through your coaching to your clients like me -Namaste!

I recently took an online yoga class with Nicole and it was amazing! She was able to guide the students to create a space at home and practice like we were all in the same room together. I felt so good and relaxed after class. Nicole is an incredible teacher who inspires her students to bring the teachings of yoga to our daily lives. Highly recommend!

Mariana G.

This was my first time taking a yoga class, and it was a great experience. Nicole described in detail what we were going to expect. The class was easy to follow along for a beginner like me. I will definitely take more classes in the future!

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed our time out on the bay doing SUP yoga last week! Despite the weird weather it was so much fun and so relaxing (yet challenging) to get out on the boards in the water.  Your explanations of what to do and when were clear and helpful.  Even though I am not the least bit coordinated you managed to provide great instruction and a good time! I especially appreciated how you went around and took photos and videos when we didn’t even know which provided us with great memories to keep! I would definitely recommend your class to friends or anyone who is looking for a fun and different way to enjoy San Diego! 
Thanks again!
