Hayley has found the yoga mat to be a wellspring of inner wisdom for more than half of her life. With the encouragement of her family, Hayley began teaching yoga in 2007 during her freshman year at North Carolina State University. She completed a 200hr Anusara Yoga teacher training and immersion program with Sommer and Paul Sobin and Lila Pierce Brown in 2010. After completing her Anusara teacher training program, she initiated another life-long movement passion with Pilates. In 2013 she completed a 500hr BASI Pilates comprehensive training and certification by Rael Isacowitz and subsequent advanced mentorship program with Rael in 2016. She is also nearing completion of her 500hr yoga certification through Asheville Yoga Center and is grateful for Joe Taft's guidance and inspiration through the process. A life-long student, she is constantly attending workshops and seeking to expand her knowledge base, including advanced trainings in yoga therapeutics with both Doug Keller and Trina Altman.
Hayley has an intricate knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics which allows her to offer a very intelligent movement experience in her classes. In 2017 Hayley embarks on the next stage of her journey as she begins physical therapy school and looks forward to building on her many years of teaching yoga and pilates through the perspective of a physical therapist. When not practicing yoga and Pilates, you'll find Hayley rock climbing, traveling, practicing acro yoga, or hiking with her dog Sydney.
