The 1st time I laid down for Savasana, I broke into tears. I was going through a tough time, but yoga saved me and changed my life. The transformation started simultaneously in my body, mind and spirit, allowing me to take away the veil that was covering my vision of what I thought life was; it took me to a space where I keep encountering amazing and suprising things. It is an honor to serve as an instrument of healing in people's lives, and to
walk together in this path of self-discovery and constant grow. I am a RYT 200, also trained in Yoga 12 Step Recovery, Elementary & Middle
School Yoga, and Trauma Informed Outreach. See you at the mat!

Yoga is a very personal discipline of connecting mind and body to make them one and whole, transforming the body into a fit vessel of the spirit.
In my teaching, I strive to enable my students to gain greater awareness of their bodies through the connection of breath, thought and movement.
The Atmananda Sequence opens the body and mind up for a deep meditation, connecting students to their purest selves, leaving the student with profound feelings of compassion and peace. When the senses are stilled, and the storms of the mind quieted through the practice of yoga, then say the wise, one has reached the highest stage.
Carolina began practicing yoga in 2005. She discovered a Power Yoga class by chance and was immediately drawn to the dynamic energy and fluid movement of the practice. In 2013 she completed her teacher training as a 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher certified in Power Vinyasa Yoga from a Baptiste Affiliate Studio. Her yoga practice inspires her to live with ease, kindness and balance and is a constant reminder and exercise in movement, breath and thought, all working simultaneously in a way that brings clarity and endless possibilities. She enjoys teaching yoga to share what she has learned with others as they explore their own potential on and off their mat encouraging her students to come in with an open mind and open heart.
Be here now. The three words that changed my life, and brought me deeper into the mindful path of yoga. Living in the present moment. Being fully consumed in it. I've always had an urge within me to help others, going with this feeling, I have been able to do so with love and compassion in my heart. Working in psychological research brought to my attention the importance of human interaction, kindness, and empathy. A smile and an honest conversation can change an individuals world. Seeing the true light within my research participants made me realize I need to go beyond this field, look inside, and then go out to truly serve others. My yoga practice began about six years ago, for the past year and a half, it has become consistent and heart opening. Being certified in a 200 HR YTT with Urban Bliss and registered with Yoga Alliance, has allowed me to expand my practice. Learning how to breathe through difficult moments, showed me the true meaning of yoga. Being able to overcome obstacles with the breath, helped me become stronger. Physically and emotionally. Relating asanas to situations of life, with the breath, gave me the courage to see that nothing is impossible. We are all worthy of anything we set our minds and souls too. I'm a firm believer of peaceful relaxation and connectedness within a yoga practice, which can then transcend into your day to day activities. We need to believe in the little voice inside of us, and follow our hearts. That is why we come to practice, to unite as one energy. By helping yourself, you help others. What a beautiful thing, right? Love is the answer. Loving, living, and learning. Namaste ॐ
Ruben is a professional yoga instructor in Miami, Florida. He has a passion for helping others and has found a way to combine his love of yoga with elevating other like-minded individuals into a more conscious and positive way of life. To Ruben, the philosophy of yoga is not about chanting Om in a room full of strangers, but about truly understanding the concept of Om. It’s about going beyond the sound, and seeking the true enlightenment that the vibration brings.

Surpreet knew she would teach Kundalini yoga when she saw an ad for teacher training in a yoga journal, even before she had begun her practice of the art. "My body resonated with recognition."
Yoga has always been part of her life as she practiced Acro Yoga with her father who learned from circus people in Sarasota and from yogis in India. She began practicing Hatha yoga in high school and kept up her practice for many years. Surpreet found her first Kundalini yoga teacher in 2002 and began exploring the abundant wonders contained in the practice. She completed teacher training in 2011. "I love intoning mantra, and practice chanting daily. I'm passionate about Kundalini and am so honored to present the teachings, intact, as taught by Yogi Bahjan."
Martha walked into a yoga studio for the first time on July 2014 and ever since has faithfully practiced yoga six days a week, sometimes even twice a day! She likes to describe that encounter as “love at first sight”. As a student of mysticism and spiritual teachings for decades, Martha found yoga to be a comprehensive philosophy and practical way to help her live in the present moment and revel in the presence of the divine within. She understands yoga as the string that connects all the dots in her life: mental and physical health, her career, and her relationships with all sentient beings, Mother Earth and the Divine. Experiencing an opening in her own body and mind, ten months later Martha received her Yin Yoga certification and with the unending support from her husband Luis, friends and family by July 2016 she became a 200 Hour- Registered Yoga Teacher as approved by the Yoga Alliance. She considers every teaching moment as a way of “paying it forward,” and hopes to inspire others to walk the path of yoga the same way her teacher did in her days as an aspiring yogi. Nowadays, Martha is getting her feet wet in Ashtanga yoga, and loves to teach Vinyasa and Yin yoga.

Yoga came to me at a time of transition. My life was unstable to say the least. My emotions, my thoughts, my career path, my relationships with others & myself were suffering, while my passion was dwindling. I was seeking for healing. I was ready to embrace change. Yoga became my journey of self discovery. My commitment grew stronger and my practice opened a space within that love flooded to fill. This love grew and has forever changed my life, it felt like finally coming home to myself. With this inner shift all other things fell into place naturally. Support followed and opportunities appeared. I offer this practice because I believe in the power of healing through the total practice of yoga and all the aspects of this path. This practice has inspired me to travel and expand my knowledge, explore myself, and this beautiful life. I have studied yoga in India, Spain, and Key Largo. I am over 500 hours certified by Yoga Alliance in Hatha , Ashtanga Vinyasa, Yin, Aerial, and Sivananda yoga. I also offer different types of meditative workshops and classes. My intention is to create a loving and exploratory space for all. Love and peace to all. Om shanti shanti shanti!
