I have never done yoga before. I have been attending classes at Moab Yoga for about three weeks now and do enjoy it. The instructors are experienced and patient and welcoming. The facility is great. I still struggle with knowing the basic poses. I wish there was a class, even periodically, for true beginners.
Porscha walked into her first yoga class on a rest day in Bishop, CA, and was instantly hooked. She was amazed by the grace and serenity with which the teacher flowed through the class and her background in dance and rock climbing gave her a deep appreciation for the meditation in movement. It is the challenge of finding physical, mental, and spiritual balance both on and off the mat, as well as the knowledge that there will always be more to learn, that fuels her passion for yoga.
In 2012, Porscha finished her 200 hour, Hatha yoga, teacher training at the Academy of Yoga in Grand Junction and an Anatomy, Therapy & Asana workshop with Martin Kirk. She is currently training and assisting Tias Little-Prajna Yoga, with an emphasis in SATYA: Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement. The SATYA practice opens doorways into the interior, providing new pathways of perception and feeling. It guides students away from “doing” movement and toward sensing, receiving and “being” movement.
Porscha teaches classes designed to quiet the mind, open the heart and reveal our natural happiness, through movement, breath and music.
Porscha also enjoys cooking & entertaining, anything outdoors, a good book, and spending time with her husband, Josh, and dog, Beau.
