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.
I practice and teach yoga to continue to develop and create opportunities to be curious, compassionate and learn. Moving our bodies, learning how they work, restore, and grow is meaningful to our life experience. Practicing sincere compassion as we unite our mind, body and spirit in discovery is powerful. I hope to always offer a practice that creatively invites you to do the same.
I found yoga when I was a teen, it was the one form of exercise that I truly enjoyed. Later, I decided to learn more about it and fell even more in love with it. I am grateful to step into the role of a teacher and share the gift of yoga with everyone.
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.
Yoga helps our bodies and minds heal through the power of our breath. Our breath is a tool to move us, stay in the present moment, and release any consuming thoughts, aches, or pains. Through yoga, we learn how to become aware, observe, and most importantly, let go. It is my honor to help guide you through a moving meditation and help you find a deeper state of consciousness.
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.
To me, yoga is the path to discovering the self through experience and observation by allowing space free from judgment and open to inquiry. The beauty of yoga is that it cultivates an awareness that is present on the mat as well as off the mat. I am honored and humbled to have the opportunity to hold space for others to explore their practice.
The world fascinates me. Ever since I was a child I have sought out passions that shed light on this marvelous life and wanted to know how far that magic goes. Since 2006, yoga has been the key tool that ties together all that I have learned and experienced. I hope to share this joy and warm your light through our practice together.
Being human is a practice, and I am here for it! I’ve been practicing yoga since the late 1900s, exploring and blooming thanks to so many diverse and wonderful teachers. In 2020 I completed a 300-hour YTT with The People’s Yoga. My intention is to invite other humans into the present moment to discover abundance, contentment, and joy as we practice being human together.
I first came to yoga as a way to increase flexibility for powerlifting and to explore a different type of physical activity. I didn’t realize how drastically my life would change after I met the mat. It opened a deeper sense of myself on a physical, mental and spiritual level that I enjoy sharing. I love teaching Yin Yoga. It calms the mind + body and led me to exactly where I am meant to be.
Yoga has allowed me to create space in both my mind and body. When I walk into the studio, the busyness of the day softens, and can begin to really check-in with myself. The iLa community has welcomed me in with such kindness and joy, and I strive to reflect that back to everyone who walks in the door
There is no “right” way to practice yoga, and I love that. It simply invites us to move, breathe, sit and feel. To weave more peace, awareness and community into our lives. To live with intention and harmony as best we can, and at the end of each day, let it all go. It is a privilege to share this gift of yoga in all its forms. I invite you to come practice with me! Just as you are.
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 have been teaching Restorative, Hatha, and Yin yoga classes since my studies then. I enjoy being outdoors and spend my time hiking and adventuring.
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.
As I chiropractor I have seen the benefits of yoga first hand in my patients. From increasing mobility to helping connect with breath, yoga is an amazing way to tap into our nervous systems and help reconnect mind and body. I am excited to teach with the iLa Team!
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!!
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.
Yoga moves me to a deeper understanding of the gift of being alive. The practice of yoga is precious beyond measure. A practice of patience, self love, gratitude, and inspiration. Yoga is medicine for the mind, body, spirit, and the collective human race. As we integrate the feelings and insights of our yoga practice within ourself, we in turn spread that through our actions in day to day life; inspiring others to move towards a higher adoration for being alive.
I was drawn to yoga to build strength, balance and resilience for both body and spirit, and enjoy sharing this gift of movement with others.
