My name is Dominique Briddon, but everyone calls me Nikki.
A dedicated yogi with specialization in Vinyasa flow, a national athlete and student of sports science. I look to share my passion for holistic wellbeing with the world.
I come from a strong sporting background playing volleyball, basketball and touch football for high school and university in the Philippines. I also completed my diploma in Sports Science from the University of the Philippines in 2007. In 2010, I started playing rugby union and was selected to represent the Philippine Women’s Rugby Team (The Lady Volcanoes) from 2010 to 2015. I then transitioned to playing for the Philippine Women’s Touch Football National Team as a less impact sport and represented my country in the Touch Football World Cup in Australia in 2015. I discovered yoga in 2010 to compliment all my rigorous sporting activities and initially thought of the practice as a nice stretching session to help in the rehabilitation of my evermore frequent injuries. At that time, I was also working for the New Zealand Embassy, meeting deadlines and quota’s and with injuries hampering my sporting progress I began yearning my next challenge. As my practice became a more extensive part of my life, I started to develop a sense of connection and wholeness with yoga and its fundamental teachings.
In Early 2017 my husband and I moved to Edmonton for his work and it was then that my practice became a consistent daily activity. I have not looked back since. I completed my 200 hour Vinyasa flow certification in Ubud Bali earlier this year. You could say that I tried hard to find yoga but in the end yoga found me. I now relish the opportunity to impart this passion and knowledge acquired to everyone, as well as learning more as a forever student of yoga “
