Hello, I'm Nicole Dooley - Your Companion on the Path to Empowered Teens. My life's path has been marked by a rich tapestry of experiences, including a stint as a high school teacher, which allowed me to deeply understand the struggles and uncertainties unique to the teenage years. Witnessing the impact these formative years can have on our futures, I felt an unwavering desire to support and empower the young minds of today.
All About Me
My own childhood was marked by emotional abuse and physical punishment, leaving me feeling anxious and awkward throughout my school years. Relentless teasing and unsupportive friendships added to the challenges I faced. It was not until my 20s that I began to cherish my self-worth and intentionally surrounded myself with uplifting people, including my husband, who has been my pillar of strength for 25 years.
Drawing from my personal journey, I rekindled my connection to yoga, a childhood passion that had a profound impact on my life. In 2019, I became a certified Yoga Teacher, a pivotal moment in my quest to make a difference in the lives of teenagers.
As fate would have it, when the pandemic hit and physical spaces closed, I embraced the digital realm and discovered an extraordinary platform catering to kids. It was here that I found my true calling - supporting tweens and teens who often feel lost and increasingly anxious in a rapidly changing world.
My approach to teaching encompasses more than the physical aspects of yoga; I emphasize mindfulness and introspection, guiding my young students to explore their inner selves and find strength within. I foster a safe and nurturing environment, drawing from my training as a certified Mindfulness Life Coach and Meditation Guide.
My ultimate mission is to empower today's teens and tweens to navigate life's challenges with resilience, self-assurance, and a profound sense of belonging. Together, let's create a future where young hearts blossom, and joy, gratitude, and love abound.
