Paula’s classes are fun and offer a unique blend of strength, ease, dynamic energy, and enlightening assists. She believes this style of yoga strips away the physical and mental barriers that prevent us from being open and powerful people. Paula enables her students to focus on the present moment, empowering them to find their authentic self and reach new levels of self-discovery.
