Welcome to Balancing on Two Feet Yoga!
Hannah discovered yoga in 2008 as a means of grounding and strength as she entered recovery for an eating disorder than she had struggled with since the age of 14. Yoga quickly became the gateway of rediscovering body, mind and soul. She left her career as a science teacher and embarked on the journey of becoming a yoga instructor and yoga therapist where she could teach this modality to others.
Yoga is much more than a physical modality and is a way to experience the light, beauty, resilience and strength that exists within us all. It brings balance and grace to the body-mind-soul connection and as we learn to balance on our own two feet in daily life, the illusions of all that surround us start to dissipate and we can again breathe into the harmony of life, the ups and downs, the trials and tribulations.
Hannah began teaching in August of 2010 and studied intently under Laurel Hodory from whom she received her 200 RYT. She is heavily influenced by Tantric philosophy and the teachings of Douglas Brooks and Tara Brach, and is inspired by yogis Kathryn Budig, Tara Judelle, Sianna Sherman, Bryan Kest, Sadie Nardini, and Dice lida-Klein.
In October 2011 she began her studies with Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, a therapeutic modality that bridges the body-mind gap through the use of assisted yoga postures and client-centered dialogue. She will graduate from the program in September 2012.
Hannah’s yoga classes are full of freedom and light energy and focus on stepping away from the seriousness of life and opening our ability to allow play back into our lives as well as creating a space for a strong body and mind. She utilizes her work as an anatomy and physiology teacher to focus on bringing a flow and grace into embodied alignment.
Please check her yoga link for a current teaching schedule as well as opportunities for workshops, private lessons, yoga therapy and corporate yoga.
Outside of the yoga realm Hannah enjoys her two pugs, Winston and Othello, the outdoors, reading, laughter and writing. She has been published nationally in Origin Magazine and locally in 11 Athletics. She continues to seek out writing opportunities or speaking engagements about yoga, body image and eating disorder recovery.
