    Nickie Dixon

    Nickie is a wife and a mom of two active boys. Nickie found indoor cycling after experiencing major back surgery in 2019. As an avid runner before her surgery, indoor cycling gave her the cardio workout she longed for while increasing her heart rate but maintaining low impact that kept her spine strong and healthy. She is a firm believer that resiliency is in all of us and no matter your fitness level, moving our bodies each day is a gift!  When she’s not cycling or enjoying a short run, you can usually find her the ball park cheering on her boys.

    Heather Halsall

    Heather is originally from the north but migrated to the south in 1999. Pitt County Schools teacher and an avid yoga enthusiast. She got addicted to the practice since her first class as a student and discovered the power of yoga while trying to recover from an injury and decided Western medicine was not fixing it. She immersed herself into yoga, attending class 3-5 days a week and learning all about this beautiful practice. By experiencing how yoga helped her not just physically, but emotionally and mentally, she knew that she had to share it with others. She completed her 200-hour RYT with Karuna Yoga in Richmond, VA and her 500-hour RYT with Asheville Yoga Center. Heather’s classes deliver a dynamic vinyasa style approach for anyBODY with any level of experience. Meet her on the mat!
