Via has been teaching Yoga classes, privates, and workshops since 2004. Her specialty certifications include Yin Yoga (with Sarah Powers), Yoga Tune Up® (with Jill Miller), Gentle Yoga (with Lanita Varshell) and Yoga in Chairs for MS (with Liz Franklin). She is also certified by BASI (Body Arts and Science International) to teach Pilates Mat and Pilates on the Apparatus. Via’s Yoga emphasizes fun, functionality, self care, and fitness forever. Her goal is to make the benefits of Yoga (and Pilates) available to all ages, shapes, sizes, and fitness and flexibility levels. Start where you are and watch what happens. Her classes blend stretch, breath, movement, posture, and meditation. Via lives in Torrance, CA, in the midst of native plants and an organic vegetable garden with a deep-felt and daily gratitude for the grace that has given her the opportunity to practice Yoga and make its teachings and benefits available to others.
