Abby

AJY-Heading-Line

Animal Lover, Dancer, Writer, Mystic, Jedi, Chanter, Vinyasa Teacher, Human Being

Abby’s energy is charged, uplifting and simply magnetic. She lives in the moment and embraces this human experience to the fullest. Her wit and realness attract friends and students from all walks of life. Originally from Akron, Ohio, she was raised in a diverse culture learning affirmation and appreciation of all beings early in life. California has been her home for the last 10 years allowing her to express her individuality and silliness to the fullest.

Yoga entered her life at a time when she needed deep healing. The heart opening, devotional path of the Bhakti lineage offered her exactly that. Showing up time and time again to class, hidden emotional traumas, unknown belief systems and negative thought patterns were revealed. Self-awareness began to emerge. Through a dedicated practice of asana, pranayama and kirtan, the duality in herself found unification. Knowing the transformative powers of yoga, Abby has dedicated her life to helping others find freedom on the mat.

I absolutely love Abby’s classes. She has an upbeat, quicker paced style combined with an energetic personality that takes control on guiding your movement with breath.

Abby always breaks down posses to the basics, offering modifications and provides helpful tips to properly engage your core. She encourages everyone to find their edge and take things deeper if it’s in their practice. Beautifully sequenced classes that warm the body up gradually into the flow and finishes with a final cool down. I leave sweaty, clear minded and rejuvenated.

If you are looking to heat your body up from the inside out, find out what your mind and body can really do, release tension, open up, and leave energized come join Abby for a totally kickass yoga experience.
