I sadly wasn’t able to follow the whole weekend of simple stillness but the day I joined in was really wonderful. Niki brought calm and harmony to the whole group, she respected everyone’s wishes. As a more introverted person I really appreciate this because I felt no pressure to talk or share my experiences, I could share when I wanted and keep to myself when I wanted. We enjoyed a wonderful heart opening yoga session as well as a calming yoga nidra. Niki also gave us well thought-out questions to make us go deeply into ourselves and discover ourselves a bit more. Overall it was an amazing experience full of shining people and high energies. I would do it again without a doubt!

I just wanna say THANK YOU one more time. The retreat was so good. Apparently exactly what I needed without me knowing that I needed it so desperately. After we finished the session yesterday, I decided to spend the rest of the day in silence (as much as possible). I spent time in nature, I studied, I journaled, I cried. I realized how much I've been missing this stillness since I've been back in Europe. Even physically isolated there is so much happening in our busy minds. I will definitely prioritise stillness and silence in my life more from now on. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Niki has wonderful skills and insights to share. her guided mediatation/journey she shared during her Simple Stillness Retreat took me on one of the best journeys ever, in my more than 20 years of experiences with these types of meditative practices. Thank you for your offering during the COVID-19 pandemic. @the Spiritual Awakening Circle.
DeAnna Hohnhorst Retreat Participant
Niki is a wonderful healer and is very intuitive and seems to know exactly what you need and do not need. She is as powerful at a distance as she is in your presence and I feel very fortunate to have met her.

I had a reflexology session with Niki and it was so lovely. She really gets into the flow and connects with your body on a deeper level. After her work, she asked me about a few specific things where she felt blockages and I was amazed! She could feel I had pain in my jaw and in my left eye. Very cool!

I found Niki through Facebook and was drawn to her friendly and natural approach. Like many teens these days, our daughter was finding the pressures of teen life were causing some anxiety and over thinking and I contacted Niki to get her thoughts. We FaceTimed and my daughter immediately said Niki was the person she wanted to see; there was such a warmth between them. When I picked up my daughter after her first session with Niki, I could see a lightness to her that was joyous. Niki gave her planning tools to deal with concerns both big and small. She also taught her meditation skills and was available to talk or WhatsApp. Our daughter recently sat important exams and she was so calm and in control throughout the stressful months. It was really great to see and I know Niki's tips played a great part in this. Niki is calm, friendly and clearly thoughtful in her approach. I can't recommend her highly enough. Everyone needs a NIKI in their life.
Mum of 16 year old daughter
I have coped with change many times in my life, but this time was different. I reached out to Niki and asked her if she would give me the kick up the arse I needed whilst holding my hand, patting my back, listening and maintaining steady eye contact. and she did all that and more! I have moved forward to an exciting place, and I couldn't have made it here without you Niki! Family and friends are wonderful but… sometimes we need a totally objective viewpoint to give us clarity. Thank you Niki for doing what you do, for the laughter, for your generosity, your clear perspective. It is a wonderful journey, so glad you walked alongside me for that part of it. Thank you.
Monica Kruger Mum to teens
I received a nourishing aligning and reviving Indian head massage, that felt like a spiritual, energetic and physical experience. I felt afterwards all glowing. Totally shining, sparkling and radiant ✨✨✨ thank you Niki
Rebecca Ann Certified Holistic Health Therapist and Life Activation Practitioner
I love having sessions with Niki. I have seen her for reflexology and massage. I left both sessions feeling amazing with instant change in my body. I love how Niki is so intuitive and connected to what's happening in me - she often knows it even when I don't. This means she is able to take care of me in the perfect way for what I need at that time. Her energy is super nurturing and she is so knowledgeable, I completely trust her and recommend her to all my friends looking for wonderful intuitive care.

Receiving Reiki from Niki is like being wrapped in a giant, supportive, insightful hug. My experience with her was not only incredibly relaxing but the intuitive guidance that she was able to share with me was reassuring and comforting. I only have the best words to describe Niki, both as a healer and a person. I have received a lot of Reiki ( and am a practitioner myself ) and her beautiful session was definitely one of the best ever. I left feeling heard, supported, calm and immensely grateful. Niki is truly a gift x
Bridget Prutz Reiki Practitioner
Yesterday I had my first reflexology session with Niki. She is really fantastic. And it says a lot as I am not someone who likes to be massaged at all. She makes you feel so much at ease and does a wonderful job. I will be back!
Karina Loka French teacher
Niki’s loving intention and intuitive spirit come through in every interaction!
I had the pleasure of experiencing a Chakra healing ceremony she lead recently and can say that it has had a profound effect in balancing my energies.
Thank you for owning and sharing your gifts Niki!!!
Nancy Banner EFT Coach
I want to recommend every workshop with Niki. My daughter loves attending all her events. Once a teen attends, it becomes their desire to keep going on with her amazing workshops! Thanks Niki! You. Are simply an amazing human being!
Ana Valencia Dufoo Mum to Alexia, middle school student
The teen girl weekend retreat was peaceful but also great fun. I loved the yoga and the group atmosphere. The location was ideal because it was so tranquil and beautiful. I often look over the notes I made during the workshops and try and meditate when I’m stressed.
Maisie Student, October 2017 retreat supergirl
My 12-year-old daughter attended the tween workshop. She loved it! I’m going to have her write her own review below.The tween workshop helped me feel better about myself. I learned to be grateful for all of the things that I have. The yoga on the beach not only relaxed me but was so fun! Then we went for a swim and in the ocean I got to know the other girls a lot more and they were really nice. Niki was a great yoga teacher and she motivated us by saying how the day was on a scale of 1-10. The day ended on a 10! She was fun , nice and helpful. I could tell that she loved helping us. Eliza , Niki’s daughter, was also there and she was really nice. It was great because she’s only 6 years older than us so she remembered exactly how difficult being a girl can be sometimes. She shared some of her troubles that she had when she was a tween and it was great talking to her about it. She enjoyed helping her mom out in the workshops and I hope she goes to more. I can’t wait to go to the retreat in October! The people there could not have been nicer!
Allison Herrick Pullen Mum of Molly, June 2018
We all need help sometimes, people to view things in a different way, to take the pressure off everyday living and to accept us however we show up. Shine, sparkle, Radiate offers this not only to teens but the parents who love those teens but are finding life and that journey reaching an impasse.My daughter recently attended a day event, she wanted to meet new people, spend time doing something grown up and just for her and Niki offered that safe space. A place to explore, a place to enjoy, a place to be....
She came back excited, armed with new tools in her tool chest to weather that storm that is puberty and new friends that she could relax and be with.
Thank you for such a beautiful experience!
Kezia Luckett Mum of Amelie, June 2018
From the first moment to the end, a session with Niki is an incredible experience. The peace, the sweetness and the tranquility that transmit her smile, her gestures and her hands is extraordinary!!! Every time I have received a massage from her, I have floated out, as if the world had changed in my favour. Everything becomes perfect. As a masseur myself, I am grateful to have found Niki because she shows dedication, love and presence at 100% throughout all the session. What great hands!
Matias Murano Massage Therapist, Barcelona
Maisie very much enjoyed her time at the retreat surrounded by friendly like-minded individuals. She arrived back home full of stories and with renewed vigour for the new challenge ahead of her - starting her new course at Art School.
Tracy Edensor Mum of Maisie, aged 18, October 2017 retreat supergirl
My top things about the teen girl retreat weekend were the delicious and healthy food and hot chocolate every night, the kittens that were so cute, the yoga - although it was hard at times, it helped me clear my mind. I now know how to meditate and have some tips to help me in my daily life. I felt that I could be open with Cat and Niki and they helped me feel safe and supported all weekend. I also felt like they could help me with problems and give advice.
Josefine Bak High school student, October 2017 retreat supergirl
I really enjoyed the retreat as a whole! It was really relaxing and I got to know some amazing individuals as well as experience yoga. Also it gave me time to spend with close friends and not interact with social media as much. I learned a lot and am now much more grateful. I use visualisation much more in my life. I felt supported and looked after by Cat and Niki. I really loved the accommodation and the food was great, especially the couscous!
Magali Macori High school student, October 2017 retreat supergirl
Amelie still writes her gratitude notes every evening and puts them into her gratitude jar. She has also religiously begun meditating every evening and all because of your weekend retreat. Her energy has shifted in a beautiful way. I love that you are dedicating yourself to teen girls and empowering them. Bravo to you Niki! I’m sure Amelie will be back for another weekend retreat this year!
Cambry Sanchez Mum of Amelie, high school student, October 2017 retreat supergirl
I had the pleasure of being involved in a Wellness workshop that Niki ran for teenage girls at Beau Soleil school in the Swiss Alps, which included sessions on Meditation, Indian Head Massage and Pilates. This was such a success that the girls wanted to do it every week! As well as being a talented therapist, Niki has a genuinely calm and caring nature and she radiates warmth. Her patience with the young people, and the way she nurtures and encourages them, inspires trust and affection. She is able to create an atmosphere where young people feel free to express themselves and to grow.
Charlotte Vale Head of Universities and Careers Guidance, College Alpin Beau Soleil, Villars sur Ollon, Switzerland
Niki has worked with all members of my family, including my two teenage children. She is sensitive to each person’s individual needs and lifestyles and is discrete, professional and generous. I can particularly recommend her for her understanding and empathy for teenage girls where her skills and understanding excel.
Laurence Metheyer Expert in radionics and Feng shui, Montlucon, France
Having worked with Niki and also experienced her « healing hands », I can completely recommend her therapy services. She is gentle, attentive, ever-present and caring. Her relaxation massage is just that; total, full and deeply relaxing. My clients, like me, appreciated her and had nothing but praise for her.
Samantha Dutoit Nicholls Owner/MD Serenity Beauty and Relaxation, Villars sur Ollon, Switzerland
