“Finding this style of yoga has been a blessing and a joy in my life…this practice offers me physical challenge (coming from a strong fitness background), mental clarity (having worked in the corporate world for over 20 years), and spiritual connection/awakening. I have been a fitness enthusiast/teacher for over 25 years what I enjoy most is bringing people together to build community in RI …there is such energy and power in that for everyone involved. Sharing Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga to all that come to class makes me feel energized and alive, in teaching this practice my hope is to infuse that same feeling in others.”
