Frontier Movement, Health and Healing in Action

Nicki Anahata Musick, Yoga Instructor

My first attraction to yoga was primarily a spiritual calling. My first introduction to yoga and meditation came through the teachings of Avatar Meher Baba when I was in high school in Myrtle Beach. Around 1970 I visited the beautiful preserve and spiritual retreat there dedicated to Him.

In 1971 I moved to the southwest and began Kundalini Yoga and Meditation studies and practice with the 3HO (Happy Healthy, Holy) Foundation and Yogi Bhajan (a Yoga Master from India who emerged out of the Haight/Ashbury era of the 60’s helping youth find health, happiness and wholeness through Kundalini Yoga. You might know him as the originator of the now famous Yogi Tea!)

I experienced the disciplines of living yoga as an ashram resident and began studying massage therapy and holistic health in those days. I have had the immense good fortune to go on to study with other renowned teachers of our times.

I was a staff member for the Mind Body Medical Institute’s affiliate program of the Beth Israel Medical Center and Harvard University, teaching Yoga and stress management skills for medical symptom reduction. I have taught in many institutions and facilities.

I have assisted midwives and mothers as a Doula at home and in the hospital delivery room and am certified in Conscious Pregnancy under Gumukh Kaur Khalsa and Prenatal Yoga under Stephanie Keach.

I opened the Yoga and Wellness Center of Columbia in 1994 as “Kundalini Rising” at Stardust Books. I became a member of the Yoga Alliance and the International Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association. We reopened as the Yoga and Wellness Center of Columbia in 1996, which continued for another 14 years.

Presently I teach individualized, group and specialty yoga and meditation classes. I provide yoga and breathing therapies and massage & bodywork at the Palmetto Spinal Center. I bring you the transformational tools of yoga music and sacred sound. I am a faculty member of the Legal Ethics and Practice Program for the South Carolina Bar teaching stress management techniques, and provide natural food supplements and bodycare assistance at Rosewood Market, Columbia’s pioneer holistic center!

My primary work today is helping others in the efforts for a strong and healthy body, a peaceful mind and open heart.
