this is #ARTYOGAPLAYdiscovering the beautiful imperfections of daily life through movement + creativity + mindfulness

Since the inception of my company #ARTYOGPLAY, it has always been my vision that through this interplay between yoga’s physical movement and the working with our hands as artists I could give others the inspiration and the accessible tools to become creative beings.

Hi, I’m Nicole Peralta, owner and founder of ARTYOGAPLAY.
I’m passionate about slowing down and taking time to discover: creativity, movement and mindfulness.

You can find ARTYOGAPLAY workshops and retreats throughout Houston and Latin America. I also lead yoga classes with Black Swan Yoga and Yogaleena.

As a digital entrepreneur, I also provide online consulting and creative coaching through online book clubs and specialized one-on-one mentoring. With a professional background in client relationships, print and digital communications and nonprofits in education and the arts, I enjoy providing clients with: creating career transitions, mentorship for creatives and emerging professional leaders, and teaching healthy, mindful and creative lifestyles.

In my fifth year of teaching, I am an up-and-coming wellness, creativity and mindfulness leader and artist. I now have a growing portfolio of yoga teaching and educational training in several cities including Houston, New York, Los Angeles, Guatemala City, Antigua, Lago Atitlan, Medellin, and Mexico.

Originally from Montreal and raised in Houston, I am a Registered RYT 200 yoga teacher from Big Power Yoga with art and design coursework from the Glassell School of Art. In 2015, I started working on my RYT 500 with Yogamaya in Chelsea NYC. When I’m not teaching and mentoring, I go on international travel adventures, crave running on the cobblestone streets of Antigua and the tree-lined trails around Houston, and being a connoisseur of tacos. You can learn more about my spiritual journey, creative endeavors, and adventures on my blog.


ARTYOGAPLAY began in 2014 with the intention to share and build a movement.

a movement in our physical bodies through vinyasa yoga and a movement towards getting more people to remove their creative blocks and becoming creative beings

In 2015 I took ARTYOGAPLAY abroad to Latin America and proceeded to spend several years teaching yoga, art, meditation, and mindful creative exploration internationally.

Present day ARTYOGAPLAY is rooted in Houston with a commitment to growing in Texas and Latin America.


I enjoy copious amounts of coffee. Have an addiction to reading multiple books all at the same time especially “The Artist’s Way” & “Big Magic.” I actually love running along streets with lots of oak trees even in the summers. When I’m not in the studio, I’m creating watercolor paintings, meditating with chocolate, or going on an adventure awkwardly practicing my French & Spanish language skills.
