Nikki Breedlove
I hit the ground running at 14 years old as the first freelance for Urban Decay in Utah. After freelancing for Urban Decay for five years I ventured on to working for Aveda for six years, holding top sales positions and creative directing for Landis Lifestyle Salon- the top Aveda Salon in the country. At the top of my game, assisting Antoinette Beanders, creative director of Aveda, at New York City Fashion Week of Winter 2013 I was stuck by a car coming off the Brooklyn Bridge. Catapulting my body 50 feet through the air, landing on my head. While fighting for my life at Cornell Hospital for two months suddenly the importance of winged liner and contoured cheeks offered no real value along side the compassion in ones eyes or the warmth of ones skin. While my physical injuries of shattered: leg, pelvis, rib cage, and skull the subtle body came to life allowing me to clearly see that when we are stripped to our rawest form– beauty is revealed. I am not dead, but more alive than I have ever been. With a clear purpose to share my belief that real beauty should be conscious and sustainable not dictated by the illusionary importance of disposable trends, but to revel in the play land of full expression. Yoga is what ultimately led me to this awakening.

Yoga entered my life 10 years ago when I was struggling to find a balance of social and work commitments and completely ignoring my body and spirit. I was grateful to connect to my first yoga instructions and my curiosity kept me returning to the mat. Within two years, my practice had greatly altered my outer world and my inner landscape. I began to seek out retreats, workshops, participating in as many as possible. I studied a week of Astanga in Thailand, holding workshops on Yin, Restore and Hatha.

~ More About Everyday Joy ~ 

At our core, our most basic essence, there is Joy. A place people know very well but may not feel confident in finding often.
We notice when other people have true joy, are lit up, catch ourselves smiling when we’re around them, but don’t know how to do what they do. Consciously or unconsciously we are always seeking that space.
What if it’s easier to find than you think? There are tools, questions, and fun just waiting for you everyday!
Candace Mau will enthusiastically wonder, share stories and light up your day. Giving you tools to navigate to Joy more effortlessly. Helping you see and walk the path for yourself.
