NICOLA BENNETT, ND CANDIDATE
Nicola is a yoga teacher and naturopathic doctor living and thriving in East Vancouver’s artistically rich Commercial Drive neighbourhood. Her interest in the human body and its movement brought her to UBC where she completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology and Health Science. Although she had always wanted to be a doctor, she realized along the way that the conventional medical system was not for her. Yoga was the key that unlocked the door to a whole new world of healing traditions, and she decided to pursue another four years of school at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine. Her studies have enriched her classes which often focus on anatomy and physiology, using breath and mindfulness to balance the nervous system. With a gentile voice and skillful instructions, Dr. Bennett combines her knowledge as a naturopathic doctor with her experience as a yoga teacher and long-term practitioner to create a truly unique experience in her classes.
