Nikki Allen,

House of RhythOM

House of RhythOM is your music-driven, immersive yoga escape. RhythOM is at the heart of everything we do. Learn the ancient practice of introspection through the modern lens of movement and sound. Our studio is mirror-free because our yoga calls you in – we don’t care what your poses look like. We want to help you feel.

Nikki is all about positive vibes, sharing a smile & holistic wellness. Her goal with each class is to make everyone feel welcome & at home on their mat.

Her interest in yoga was sparked when she took a class at her gym. Yoga brought back the joy of movement in her body that she felt when she danced and did gymnastics as a child. The love of yoga was stoked when she began her daily practice and started feeling that true body/mind connection.

Along with Nikki’s 200 hour yoga certification, she has a certification in prenatal yoga, health coaching, personal training, doula training and a degree with focus on health and wellness.

Nikki adores the outdoors, exploring and trying new foods. She has a life-long love of learning and researching and is a self-professed bookworm. In her spare time, you can find her spending time with her daughter, husband and best friends.

She looks forward to leading you through the art of breath & movement on the mat. Nikki manages and teaches at House of RhythOM in San Antonio, Texas.

Our mission is simple. We’ll get you out of your chaotic head and into your body.


“Great experience. Awesome leader, nice ambiance, great class members.”

“Nikki’s energy is absolutely fabulous. She has been a blessing to my life in so many ways. I first met her through her teaching my yoga class, where she instantly made me feel safe and taken care of. I really enjoy how relatable and real she is and how comfortable I felt in her class. I just recently moved to San Antonio and was in need of support and community. I cannot recommend her enough!”

“I’ve never felt so at ease and comfortable in a yoga session before. Nikki was very inclusive to anyone that wanted to join. And her friendly energy and happiness most definitely radiates from herself to everyone in the group. I always leave feeling energized and full of peace.”

“If you haven’t met Nikki yet you are definitely missing out! She is a wonderful gem and a marvelous person, and I miss her happy energy all the time.”

“Every instructor is welcoming, fun, personable and incredibly knowledgeable. I love yoga at this studio. Thanks for giving us a yoga home”

“The music selection set up my mindset, the flow challenged me yet allowed me space to back off to honor myself. The vibes, instruction, friendliness, and cleanliness were top notch.”

“Small and quaint. The dimmed lights, the aromas, the calming music, the attention to detail in the classes and the body, mind and spirit all combined into a studio. It’s fantastic!”
