In a beautiful, high-ceilinged studio, Trish guided us through a moving meditation that took me outside of time. Simple, direct cueing and loving hands-on adjustments gave me a powerful sense that my needs were known. After a practice that proved my own strength to me, a final shivasana brought peace and truth that I have carried with me off my mat.
Serena came to her yoga practice by way of a popular DVD series of workouts in 2007. After practicing at home for years, she decided to take her home practice to a deeper space and started exploring different teachers and studios. It was in the studio space in 2015 where Serena fell in love with everything yoga had to offer, not just the physical practice. The influential teachings of Trish Washburn and Kate Yanke is where Serena discovered she loves a more robust, playful, sweaty flow, but enjoys the deep spiritual connections made in a slower, meditative practice as well.
When she isn’t practicing or teaching yoga, Serena enjoys spending time in her garden, running and hiking with her two kids and husband, and dancing around the kitchen to loud music! She believes one must find the positivity and enjoyment in life, and exploring life through a yogic lifestyle is the key to her happiness!
Serena received her 200 hour YTT from Soleil Lune Yoga Center.
