Episode 1: Brave Honesty, #blacklivesmatter, & Owning your Masks with Nikki Martin

Podcast cover
Read more

SHE Quest Season 4 opener is blessed to feature Nikki Martin, Writer and full time Yoga Teacher living on the eastern shore of Nova Scotia. Her love of words and stories, both reading and creating them, started very young and with the release of her first fictional novel ‘A Momentary Darkness’ in August 2018 comes the realization of a long time dream. Her passion for words and creating also shows up in her yoga classes. Through her own life experience, and through teaching, she has come to believe whole heartedly in the practice of Yoga as one that can offer space to heal, find strength, build new habits and that always provides an opportunity to take much needed time for ourselves. You can find her teaching at a number of yoga studios in the HRM or in her spare time somewhere near the ocean. In this episode you will learn, Nikki's tumultuous upbringing and what called her out of turmoil and into a spiritual life, her “enough is enough” moment when it came to her addiction and choice to live a sober life, her struggle to accept her blackness, and that no amount of action is enough and that there is a need to be called forth to relentlessly show up with brave honesty.
