Keri Honea has, in all honesty, not been practicing yoga for decades. She was talked into trying out yoga with a friend in 2014. Keri begrudgingly went, strongly believing that yoga was just a bunch of hippie dippie baloney. By her first class, she was HOOKED. A few months in, she wanted to be a teacher. Yoga completely changed her life. As such, she couldn’t keep it all to herself. She had to share yoga with others and hopefully change their lives the way only yoga can.

Take time to breathe, be present and live in the moment. Allow your breathe to guide you as you flow through a sequence of postures. Find your inner self, increase your strength and flexibility and learn to flow with your breath. Join in the journey, one breath at a time.

 I meet students where they are in the moment and teach how to allow your breathe to guide you through a practice, whether it's a vigorous flow or meditative yin/restorative class. I believe breathe and movement combine together to make for a wonderful practice. I love the twists and turns of a yoga journey that remind you to breathe, be present and live in the moment.
