Nikki Love-Adkins, 33
Co-Owner and Yoga Instructor at Sumits Hot Yoga
Charity: American Heart Association
When Nikki Love-Adkins had her daughter, Bostyn, she learned quickly that she would not be able to control things anymore. A self-proclaimed lover of plans and lists, Nikki had to learn how to accept the change in her life when Bostyn was diagnosed with severe food allergies.
“There is a plan that’s way bigger than I am,” she says. “I don’t get to make it and I’m not in charge of anything, but I can be in charge of how I react.”
Nikki says her daughter is teaching her how to take charge instead of living in fear, something that yoga also helps with. Nikki is a yoga instructor and co-owns Sumits Hot Yoga in Springfield. She says having yoga and Bostyn come into her life at the same time changed her, and she sees similar change in her students in the studio.
“I think yoga draws in people who are broken in some way at some point in their life,” she says. “You can see that through fear of trying a class. But then you see improvement. People grow and become more confident and find joy. It’s the best job in the entire world.”
