My name is Jen Nicholson. My connection with yoga evolved out of a personal experience with a challenging illness known as ‘chronic fatigue syndrome’. I have found yoga useful for managing the illness and for existing as a human being in general. My interest in yoga led me to study formally, attaining a Diploma in Satyananda Yoga Training. Prior to that I studied for a Bachelor of Social Science (Social Welfare) to indulge some of my humanitarian leanings and have worked in that field in areas relating to women and children.
I’m very interested in philosophy, human psychology, science and critical thinking, and in the exploration of yoga in these contexts. I wouldn’t consider myself as an ‘expert’ in yoga or an expert at life. I see myself more as that insatiably curious, somewhat-trying student at the front of the classroom who’s always putting her hand up to ask questions and understand how things work.
This web site is an experiment in yoga for anybody who has a connection with yoga, or who wants to learn about it and/or try it. It is an exploration of yoga philosophy, theory and method and how they can be applied to life.
I hope you find something in these pages especially for you. Your comments, insights and observations are not only welcome but encouraged!
Hari Om Tat Sat!
