Nick Ricciardi

Health and fitness has always played an essential role in my life. I am currently a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and have worked at a variety of health clubs throughout Boston and Greater Hartford. Helping my clients ascertain their goals is extremely rewarding and gratifying. In addition to my work in fitness facilities, I have a strong background in Martial Arts. I have received training in Bushido Jujitsu, Judo, Aikido and Tai Chi. These arts have helped me to become strong in Body, Mind and Spirit.

My yoga practice also serves as a critical part of my life. It has strengthened my ability to stay present, focused and relaxed. Also, it enables me to truly find balance and peace. My overall health and well being has improved since I started my practice. I am grateful to teach at Samadhi because I love to help others and share what I know.

Along with Personal Training, I am a Full-Time Teacher for Hartford Public Schools. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my six year old daughter (and chasing after her), reading, live music in the sun and playing basketball… and yoga, of course.
