Instructor – The Learning Center at Red Willow
Nick Gonzalez is a military veteran trained in both hot (26 & 2) and flow yoga. Drawing on principles of meditation – uniting the body and breath with intention and focus – Nick creates a warm, inviting atmosphere for participants of all skill levels to engage meaningfully with yoga practice.
Originally from California, Nick relocated to Montana in 2012, seeking to build a lifestyle around hunting and fishing. Noticing the physical wear and tear resulting from these outdoor exploits, he first (reluctantly) tried yoga as a therapeutic measure to help build his strength for better performance. What he found, however, was much more than that.
Through yoga, Nick experienced powerful shifts in his mindset, physical strength and agility, and overall life outlook. Now, his goal is to share these energizing benefits with as many people as possible through classes at Red Willow and around the Missoula area.
