Certified Yoga Instructor
Certified Pilates Instructorr

Black Belt in Karate,
Black Belt in Kobudo, CMAC
Tai Chi Certification, CMAC

Yvonne lives Yoga and Pilates every day. She has cultivated a commitment both through her practice and meditation. She started out in the Martial Arts receiving black belts in Karate, Kobudo, and Tai Chi. Shortly after, she received her teacher’s certificate for teaching Yoga and Pilates.  She sees the body as energy and having explored the element of energetic flow understands the benefits of reenergizing our bodies.  As we create lines of energy through the body, we also create space through the joints and spine and as our bodies open, our minds begin to open.  She understands that balance comes from a calm and focused mind.

She teaches a hatha flow yoga class where the mind, body and breathe are connected, moving from one move to the next with mindfulness and breath.  She also teaches a vigorous Pilates class for a whole body workout .

"All of life is contained in this moment, in the space between thoughts, in the pause between breaths.” Stephen Shaw
