Where did you get your training/certifications?Completing my 200 hour at Thrive, Prenatal YTT with April Puciata

She immediately fell in love with the practice, and, as a result, she bought a plane ticket to embark on a yoga journey to India. Since then she has dedicated herself to the study, practice and teaching of yoga. Rikki is known for her authentic, non-judgmental teaching style and her compassion-centered philosophy.
