I would agree with the statement that this studio is perfect for the serious yoga student. Yoga studios are much more commonplace nowadays, but not all focus so intently on the energetic elements. Yoga at SLYC is far more than simply stretching; each class honors the body/mind/spirit connection and is rooted in the energetic value of human movement. I love the variation, nothing is forgotten or left behind as we practice through the week. While each instructor brings their own energy, there is cohesion throughout their intructions. I always feel at home, cared for, supported, and restored by my practice with their expert leadership. Namaste
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.
