Estrella Munoz, E-RYT
Estrella was introduced to yoga in her teens. Though she was a spiritually curious child, meditating as early as 12 years old for hours at a time, it was not until several years after her first warrior 2 that she began her consistent practice. Estrella has always recognized yoga for the healing and harmonious aspects of the practice and shares this with her students today. A student of Vipassana meditation, which has influenced her teaching as she incorporates this, reiki and techniques on mindful living into her classes. Understanding everyone is on a path and process of their own, this ashtanga influenced, Soul Sweat Asana trained instructor combines traditional teachings with an accessible approach. Challenging students to not only push themselves to their limits but also to practice discipline and patience with themselves. Estrella thanks her many teachers with special gratitude to Wendy Gross Pinto of The Yoga and Healing Center.

She co-founded My Om Town Yoga and has since helped several yoga programs start up in different communities.
