Nikki Rowinski started practicing yoga in college almost 20 years ago as an extra fitness element to add to her regular gym routine and immediately fell in love with the mindful movement aspect of it. It was her moving meditation. When she started practicing Power Yoga, especially, it really changed her body. She noticed quick results and got stronger. She was using muscles she never worked before and her body was leaner and more toned. Her balance also improved, and she pushed herself past her normal limitations and did things she never thought she could do like inversions and arm balances. And most importantly, she had a ton of fun!
After discovering her passion to inspire others to find their true self on the mat, she completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program at Power Yoga Works (Malvern, PA) in 2014. Nikki loves to be challenged both on and off the yoga mat. A challenge on the mat might mean learning a new, advanced pose and transition or it could simply be focusing on her breath and centering herself. Yoga is her passion, and Bulldog Yoga is her happy place.
With over 7 years of experience teaching yoga, she puts her heart and soul into every class, and she wants everyone to leave their mat feeling like a badass, inspired to take on the world and crush anything that gets thrown at them!
When not practicing or teaching yoga, Nikki works hard as the Director of Merchandising and E-Commerce for a large thrift retailer, is a busy mom to two sons and enjoys spending time with her family and friends. Nikki received her bachelor’s of science degree in Design & Merchandising from Drexel University in 2005 and her master’s of science degree in Education in 2011, with a certification in Elementary Education from the PA Department of Education.
