What Yoga Taught Hanna?

Yoga has been an incredible part of my life. The strengthening aspect of yoga along with patience, vulnerability, and intention on and off the mat.

Vulnerability has really been an aspect of yoga that has been transformational to my life and relationships. Cultivating tenderness and vulnerability is incredibly difficult in our world.  I now lean into the discomfort and recognize it’s not the end of the world.

Why Practice Yoga?

Yoga is a completely different kind of workout for my body.

I am challenged to try new things and find a new sense of stillness. I love the workout that yoga provides, and to share that with other yogis is a wonderful experience.

Why Try Yoga?

Don’t overthink it!  Yoga could be viewed as intense but non-judgement is one of its core principles.

I hope that newcomers know that it’s a very open and caring community. Get on the mat and do what feels right. Don’t worry about what others are doing around you.

I love sharing yoga with new people. It’s incredibe to recognize the power and badassery in yogis.

Chaturanga Yoga Journal

Chaturanga- Yoga Journal

Yoga Pose that Most Represents Hanna’s Life

I would say a chaturanga. A chaturanga has a lot of moving parts: physical movement, the quieting of your mind, and breathing.

Chaturanga helps strengthens your core and find your center, something I am attempting at this point in my life.
