Our Team

Nicole Gorle

Nicole started her yoga journey in 2010 when her friend dragged her to a hot yoga class in Plainview, NY. Two years later, she began her 200-hour teacher training with YogaWorks in Woodbury, NY. She started by teaching close friends and family members in the basement of her house in Syosset, NY. She soon graduated to various studios and gyms. Continuing her yoga teacher journey, she returned to where her passion was born by getting a 500-hour teacher training in hot yoga at Yoga Oasis in Woodbury. Following that, she landed a job at the studio where she received training teaching numerous classes throughout the week. After moving out east, she found a local hot yoga studio to continue her education, getting trained in yin yoga and barre. She also decided to branch out, getting a certification in antigravity yoga in the city! She soon found Satya and made that her new home studio. Nicole is always eager to learn more! Whether continuing her yoga education or going to a local community college to begin her nursing school journey. Nicole not only has a passion for learning but loves animals, reading, a good true crime documentary and, of course, exploring the outdoors with her amazing little boy Lucas.
