Nikki Ayres is a Cronulla Yoga teacher, health coach, retreat host and speaker who is passionate about raising awareness and speaking up about mental illness after being diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder in 2014.
Since being diagnosed Nikki has made it her commitment to speak up and be a voice for mental illness and she is organizing an event “A Night of Light”.
The aim of the event is to get the community together to become more aware of mental health issues and how to take action if they or someone they know is suffering.
“Since overcoming my battle with mental illness I have gone on to run many successful charity events, international yoga retreats and run my own yoga and coaching business,” Nikki said.
“I want to help show others that there is a life beyond a diagnosis and that recovery is possible.”
A Night of Light is a soulful event with a host of inspiring speakers, guided meditations and live music.
This is a community event running to shine light on topics such as mental illness, combating fear, overcoming pain, self love and lifting your mood to attract what you desire.
The Night of Light event is on Sunday, January 21 , from 5.30pm to 8.30pm at Cronulla Sharks Leagues Club.
Tickets are only $10 for two people or at the door $20 to absorb the inspiring stories, be grounded through the meditations and move freely whilst dancing to the live music and having some fun.
Speakers include Nikki Ayres,Travis Young, Marja Jacobson, Hollie Azzopardi, Gracie Balev, Ava Leonard, Dr Maria Lukeides and Vanessa Morrison with live music by Ainslee Bull.
All profits raised go towards Beyond Blue to raise funds for Mental Health.
