With encouragement, acceptance and knowledge, our instructors facilitate yoga from many backgrounds, truly making us an Interdisciplinary studio. We aim to empower and unlock the teacher within. All iLa Yoga instructors are certified with either their 200, or 500 hour certification, recognized by the yoga alliance.
My practice takes me to the earth, the mat, around the world, and guides me to my truest, most vulnerable self. Yoga encourages me to be strong, positive, kind, and caring. The mat grounds me, provoking me to acknowledge the love that resounds within me - and to SHARE that love, that gratitude, with all my students at iLa.
The benefits of a regular yoga practice are undeniable. Years of practice, and self-study have led me to my love of yoga, and my openness to the world I encounter daily. Come to your mat, set your expectations aside, and enjoy the effects this energetic, calming and refreshing practice will have on your life, and the world.
Since yoga discovered me in 2003, my life’s path has lead me to the relevance of yogic philosophy & the breath which is explored every day at iLa. With my administrative experience & personal enjoyment for serving a business I believe in, I am delighted to be in a position of support to iLa teachers & students.
Yoga has taken me on a journey of healing all the layers of myself: physical, mental, spiritual, energetic. My practice is always evolving in pursuit of living my truth, a deep knowing of self, and the world around me. It allows me to be and become. I love to be creative in my flow while respecting the ancient roots of yoga. I am honored to share this practice with others, and to inspire students on their own yoga journeys.
Yoga moves me to a deeper understanding of the gift of being alive. A practice of patience, self love, gratitude and inspiration, yoga is medicine for the mind & body. As we integrate the insights of our yoga practice within, we in turn spread that through our actions in day to day life; inspiring others to move towards a higher adoration for being alive.
The practice of yoga for me has been life changing. I have found balance, flexibility and strength not only physically but mentally and energetically. Observance and acceptance of authentic self on my mat has led to physical and emotional healing and profound connection to my inner light. I love the opportunity I have to share that with others.
Yoga has allowed me to continually grow into the healthiest, happiest, strongest version of myself I can be. I believe one's practice should be a safe space where we can learn to let go, to trust, to move authentically, and to work towards a sense of inner peace. It is a blessing, to be able to share the healing gifts of yoga, with the iLa community.
Teaching at ILA has given me the platform for my soul's intent of guiding others to heal their physical bodies, embrace their spiritual bodies for my higher vision of connecting us all to heal the planetary body. I love creative strength and slow burn vinyasa movements in hopes to someday be a warrior yoga ninja!
I have been an ardent student and practitioner of Eastern Medicine since 2001. My personal journey and continued studies throughout the years developed my love for meditation and a passion for yoga. All of these sciences are joined and weaved into my style and perspective. My teaching strengthens the body, develops dharna and empowers the higher self in each student.
I began practicing yoga my early 30’s, and found my path to sharing yoga to others in my 50’s. With a focus on making yoga accessible and enjoyable to everyone; student safety and comfort are my highest priorities. I feel strongly that the yoga postures should fit the individual student rather that requiring a student to fit the posture.
In 2001, I began practicing Ashtanga and Yin yoga. I received my 200-hour certification and later, my 500-hour certification at Western Yoga College. I studied Restorative yoga with G.L. Gray in 2003 and love teaching Restorative, Hatha, and Yin classes at iLa.
My yoga practice has become a lifeline. It teaches me to be present, connected, and whole. Through these beautiful movements, the necessity of stillness, and the power of our breath, all things become possible. As a teacher, holding space and sharing in this practice with others is a gift and an honor.
Yoga helps me tune in, get in shape, and relax. Yoga provides a space to connect with my physical, mental, and emotional body. While creating a since of calmness, my practice helps to balance the demands of everyday life.
I love yoga. A constant practice. Never perfect, never anything less than perfect. I love yoga when I’m stiff and when I’m flexy. I love yoga when I’m joyful and even when I’m not. And yoga always loves me back. I love that yoga connects me to my breath, to myself, to the moment, and to a community. And the other thing I love about yoga? Sharing it.
I am a lover of yoga! I have found self expression through creative movements and have learned the importance of structure and balance, both on and off my mat. I hope to share the amazing gifts of self love and acceptance that I have experienced in my own practice with all my students.
My yoga has been part of a journey on my new path: spiritually, physically, and mentally. I see my teaching as the guide of information and transmission so that my students have their own, unique experience. Proper alignment and breathing deeply allows us to flow like a butterfly in the magical jungles of Nosara. Por fa: Engage your ChuleBandha!!
