She teaches weekly yoga classes as well as private lessons in the Northern Virginia area.
She began her studies in Ayurveda in the spring of 2015 at the Himalayan Institute and became certified as an Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist in the Fall of 2015. She plans to continue her journey through the teachings of Ayurveda and strives to become a certified Ayurveda Health Counselor in the near future. Right now, she counsels clients on the teachings of Ayurveda and helps them understand how their bodies are connected to the world around them.
Paula stepped into her first yoga class over 15 years ago while living and working as a professional modern dancer in Minneapolis, MN.
She felt grounded and calm after her first class and began to practice on a regular basis. It wasn't until she moved to the Northern Virginia area in 2005 that she began to feel the spiritual effects of her yoga practice. This period in her life at that time was in a state of chaos and practicing yoga was what kept her sane. Paula strives to bring that calm, grounded effect to her students through the teachings of yoga - whether on or off the mat.
