Yoga has been a huge part of Celia’s life for many years. Celia believes that yoga found her at a time in her life when she needed it the most. She quickly fell in love with her practice and began to practice daily and expand her knowledge on different types and areas of yoga. Celia’s favorite style of class is a power/hot class. This style of class helps to push her practice forward. Celia views yoga as a tightly woven bond between your body, your mind, and your breath. Yoga has brought freedom and release to Celia in ways that nothing else has. She is passionate about helping others find this same freedom and release. Yoga has also challenged Celia in ways that she could not have imagined and has allowed her to push beyond her limits. Celia is very dedicated to her yoga practice and helping others start and grow their own practice. Celia completed her 200–hour YTT and is currently working on her 300-hour YTT training. Her training includes Vinyasa, Aerial Yoga, Cancer Care Yoga, Chair Yoga and Yin Yoga. Celia is known for her calming, non–judgmental teaching style. She encourages personal, physical, mental and spiritual growth; citing that everything and everyone is connected. Celia hopes to both learn from her students and inspire them to be the best yogi they can be.

Types of Yoga Classes
Beginners yoga – **No experience necessary. A great class for beginners and experienced yogi’s alike. We will be holding poses a little longer for proper form, but also linking movement with breath. In each class you can expect to learn different variations in the yoga poses to find what works for you. Feel free to ask all the questions you want!
Cancer Care – Cancer Care connects the mind and body through moving meditations; and is a slower paced class. This type of yoga helps to reduce physical, emotional and mental stress that cancer diagnosis and treatment can bring. This type of class is suitable for yogis of all levels.
Chair Yoga – No experience necessary. A gentle class for those with limited mobility. Great for beginners and experienced yogis alike who want a gentle stretch. This class is done mostly on chairs but we do some simple standing exercises as well. You can expect calm music, tennis balls, and aromatherapy in every class. Poses are modified based on mobility, health and current ability level. This type of class is suitable for yogis of all levels.
Vinyasa – Vinyasa “flow” is a dynamic sequencing of asanas (poses). Vinyasa focuses on connecting breath to movement, using strong poses to build heat in the body, increase endurance, flexibility, strength and mental focus. This type of class is suitable for yogis with at least 1 year of regular practice to advanced yogis.
Yin Yang – Yin Yang is the combination of both Yin and Vinyasa class types – blending the benefits of holding passive poses and dynamic, standing poses. Yin is passive, cooling, internal and downward. Yang is dynamic, warming, external and upward. This type of class is suitable for yogis with at least 1 year of regular practice to advanced yogis.
Yin Yoga – **Experience Preferred. Yin Yoga is a slow paced, quiet, meditative and contemplative practice where poses are held for a longer period of time. Yin targets the deepest connective tissues of the body – joints, ligaments, bones, tendons and fascia. Connective tissue best responds to slow and steady poses, which make them stronger. Yin can help improve the flow of energy in the body, adding to the health of organs and muscles. This type of class is suitable for yogis of all levels.
