Nikita Akilapa

Nikita Akilapa

Nikita has been riding her fierce and fantastic yoga wave for more than 15 years, and still feels like a beginner. In 2011, pulled by forces much larger than her, she gave up her 12 year media career and ran away to India. She trained at Yoga Vidya Gurukul in Nashik, Maharashta, before going on to teach at retreat centres and studios around Europe. Since then she has studied and practiced with many inspirational teachers - including David Swenson, Nadia Narain, Mimi Kuo Deemer, Jean Hall, Naomi Absolom and Kristen Campbell.

Nikita teaches a strong, slow and soulful vinyasa flow, with a focus on breath-based movement, the mind-body-spirit connection, and both internal and external alignment. She aims to empower and motivate her students, encouraging each individual practitioner to explore their own potential and deepen their awareness of true self.
