Libby Nicholaou


Libby has been passionate about creating thoughful community experiences since an early age - from volunteering with AmeriCorps, leading docent tours at the SFMoMA, running the Adobe Creative Residency, to founding Setu. After completing her graduate degree in art history, with a thesis on Kara Walker's A Subtlety, she realized the power behind effectively using mediums like art to address social issues. A few years later, she experienced a life impacting injury and drew dedicated to her yoga practice. Yoga helped her feel empowered in her body, when other things felt off. She saw the value in this and wanted to make yoga more accessible to others. In 2017 she created Setu, an inclusive community for yoga practitioners. Setu is a platform promoting yoga teachers of all body types, ethnicities, gender identities, and life stories. Similarly, Libby's classes provide a space where people can settle into their bodies and learn how the practice works for them. Libby completed her 200 hour teacher training with Three Sisters Yoga and trained with Yoga Ed for children's yoga.
