Missy began practicing yoga more than a decade ago initially seeking flexibility and strength after years as a trained dance. She quickly fell in love with the practice and realized it helped her find balance for her fast paced lifestyle. She recently realized her dream of becoming a yoga instructor after completing her 200-hour yoga certification with YogaWorks (right here at YogaBalance.) When she’s not on her yoga mat she enjoys paddle boarding, cooking, and spending time with her family and friends. Missy is excited to share her love for yoga with her students.
Missy instructs the following:
In this well-rounded class, we will stretch and strengthen our bodies, open our hearts and calm our minds. We will practice longer-held postures with a focus on alignment to refine and deepen our practice. We will practice flow sequences to help us connect with our breath and our subtle energy. Guided by the wisdom of yoga philosophy, we will learn to relate more deeply and authentically with ourselves and the world around us. Appropriate for all - modifications will be offered for beginners.
Perfect for beginners or experienced students who want a slower paced, less strenuous class. In this class, we focus on stretching postures, gentle flows and breathing techniques that release stress, reduce tension and promote relaxation through a calm, meditative approach to the practice. A wonderful class for students of all ages and for anyone that wants to slow down, learn to quiet their mind and be nurtured.
