I love Yoga One and the amazing vibe/instructors this studio provides! Jensen is so healing, 10/10 recommend.
Creatively employing the tried and true Yogic focus on the power of breath, Paula supports busy folks in their quest for greater body-mind health by expertly facilitating classes dedicated to the primacy of pranayama in asana. With a focus on daily rediscovery of beauty, wonder and awe, her classes invite the practitioner into compassionate relationship with the uniqueness of his/her body-mind. Kindhearted scaffolding for maintaining balance between current experiences in yoga and possible future goals is a hallmark of her style.
Paula initially trained in Anusara, obtained her RYT 200 in 2005, and has taught extensively in the Napa Valley. Ever the curious student, she has benefitted from studying with a wide variety of asana, pranayama, and philosophy teachers. The personal and collective health benefits of relaxed “altered states of consciousness” are an unending source of personal intrigue, which continually keeps her Yoga quest fresh. As a retired nurse and 25-year veteran in the fitness industry, Paula focuses on enjoyable and sustainable body-mind health for the long haul. She finds that the sensitivity and safety afforded in attention to pranayama/asana alignment an important key in creatively sustaining the life-affirming gift of a dedicated Yoga practice.
