Nikki Haley (Anand Saraswati) is a certified KRI Kundalini Yoga Instructor and currently teaches at Lighthouse Yoga Center, located in Washington, DC. Nikki took her first yoga class 20 years ago and became hooked. After falling in love with Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga, she figured she would focus on those two forms of practice. However, five years ago, Nikki discovered the practice of Kundalini Yoga while pregnant with her son. In addition, as an MSW, Nikki has had the privilege of doing direct community service and non-profit work for a variety of populations for the past nine years working between the east coast and the west coast. In her heart, she believes that the magic of social work continues to deepen her practice. Nikki has a particular interest in Ancestral Healing and its relationship to Intergenerational Trauma. When teaching, Nikki hopes to facilitate a safe space for all that practice. She believes that if we can collectively learn to surrender to any yoga or meditation practice, then we have the opportunity to understand our life’s purpose on a multi-dimensional level.
