Portrait of Nikki Jackson


I believe in the Ayurvedic principle that we have inherent natural resources within ourselves to help bring us back to a natural state of health, wellbeing and happiness.

Nature is our guide, we know that after night there is day, after rain there is sun and after winter there is Spring. We need to trust the natural process of life, learn to accept the difficult times so we can grow and flourish on our life’s journey.

I specialise in the areas of mental health, trauma, cancer and chronic pain as well as a variety of other health conditions.

I spent my early adult life working and living in the mountains of New Zealand, France and Scotland where I developed a love of the natural world, wildlife and for sustainable living within local communities. I began studying Health & Wellbeing in my mid twenties, finding everyday ‘tools’ for people to become happier, more connected to nature, fulfilled and resilient. 
I qualified as a yoga teacher with British Wheel of Yoga in 1998 and founded Yoga Focus in the same year.

Nikki connects with the people she comes into contact with, you are not a client or a customer with Nikki, you are more than that. Nikki offers a truly personal method of using and teaching yoga
