I’ve gotten to know Nichole Churchill at Radiant Heart Yoga (RHY) well as we’ve worked together on Advocate Sherman Hospital’s Empowered Pregnancy Program. (Nichole and I kick off the program with an evening of centering physically and mentally – tuning into your body and into your top values/priorities as a parent.) And, I’ve learned that she’s totally amazing. She helps generate a calm, yet powerful, energy.
Nichole founded Radiant Heart in 2010. Nichole is a mother, certified yoga instructor, birth doula, and childbirth educator. Pregnant with her second daughter, Nichole created RHY after moving to the Dundee-area and finding a lack of resources for pregnant women. Feeling lost, disconnected, and isolated, she envisioned building a studio and community of moms to support one another as they transitioned into motherhood. Starting out as 2 small prenatal classes held in Nichole’s home 5 years ago, RHY has since flourished into an independent yoga studio that encompasses yoga classes for women and children, childbirth education, massage therapy specifically for women, as well as support groups for new moms and women.
