Paula's teaching style is clear and compassionate. She uses a mindfulness based practice to guide students into a place of receptivity that develops sensitivity, intuition and self-acceptance. She believes through yoga we cultivate a relationship to feel at home and at ease with ourselves trusting our embodiment to let our light shine.
Paula has a rich and diverse background as a licensed professional counselor, yoga therapist and bodyworker. She loves yoga philosophy and incorporates it into her psychotherapy as well as classes. She is particularly interested in the sutras & Mind/Body/Integration work.
She holds an Iyengar teacher certification at the Int. Jr.3 level, and is a Certified International Yoga Therapist. She also has training in the Scarvelli Method at the 500 Hr level and is a 500RYT with Yoga Alliance.
Level 1-2 classes will delve further into more advanced postures and students should be comfortable in inversions.
The pace of these classes is faster, you will go deeper, and your teacher will help you achieve breakthroughs in your practice and your self-awareness. We recommend you have a year of solid yoga under your mat before you join 2-3 classes. Expect to be transformed.
