Hannah began practicing yoga as an ex-soccer player and runner who could not touch the floor. She began studying Hatha yoga in 2011 with Jenika Bronson at The Pyramids of Ka in San Marcos, Lake Atitlan. A few years later, she began to study and practice Ashtanga Yoga with Scott Harig and Michele Lee at Pure Yoga in New York City. Although her inflexibility required drastic modifications to almost every asana, she found something much more profound and energizing in Ashtanga Yoga. Hannah received her 100 RYT in Ashtanga yoga from Pure New York in December 2014 and took the course again in the summer of 2015 to reinforce all of the knowledge and assisting techniques she had learned the year prior. She spent a large portion of the year assisting in the Mysore room. Her main teacher today is Aura Reverol.
For Hannah, yoga is svadhyaya – self study, non judgement. Yoga has taught her patience with her physical and psychological self. Yoga has taught her to be gentle with her body instead of pushing it to unnecessary limits. Yoga has been a way for Hannah to slow down while rejuvenating her whole persona. Yoga has introduced her to people, communities, students and places that have truly enriched her life. She is thankful for all of this.
Hannah wants anyone that takes her class to feel welcome, safe and present. In every class, she tries to create a spirited and rigorous flow that targets the inner strength and grace in oneself. She wants every human to feel like they have a community before, during and after her class.
