Yvonne is passionate about living and sharing the path of yoga. She invites students to tune-in to their internal experience, using movement and breath to cultivate an open body and calm mind. Her classes are grounded and intentional, incorporating rhythmic flow; attention to alignment; and intelligent sequencing that weaves together strength, flexibility and balance. She encourages students to bring greater awareness, curiosity and compassion into their practice.
Inspired by the power of yoga to transform her life at the deepest levels, she left a demanding advertising career, dedicating herself to helping others find a clear and centered place within themselves. Yvonne believes in the awesome potential that resides in every person and that through the holistic practice of yoga, we can live a more conscious, vibrant and purposeful life.
After her initial 200HR training at Yoga Tree San Francisco, Yvonne went on to complete a 500HR Kundalini/Vinyasa training with Kia Miller, diving deep into the subtler aspects of pranayama, kriya, mantra and meditation. Yvonne continues to evolve her practice and teaching, studying extensively with her teacher Jason Crandell.
As a complete novice, I originally approached yoga with equal amounts of skepticism and self-doubt. However, under Yvonne’s firm, yet gentle guidance, I have come to fully embrace yoga which has in turn changed my life. Yvonne has a natural teaching ability that enables her to easily bring forth the best in her students. -Barbara L, San Francisco
