I am a 500 RYT, Dallas based Yoga teacher that believes compassionate service helps to alleviate the pain of those who are suffering but its greater value lies in purifying the minds & hearts of those who render it. I like to focus on asanas (postures) and pranayama (breath control) specific to each client’s needs to help with the physical and/or mental ailments he or she may be challenging in their day to day lives. I first came to Yoga for the fitness benefits and was hoping that it would help with my ongoing health concerns but then after a few years of practicing, realized that the exercise involved in Yoga was just a nice side effect of the practice. Through asana, pranayama and meditation I have been able to steer my health into another direction and see positive changes in every part of my life since then. Yoga is not just a job for me. It is my hobby, my passion and my practice for life!
Erin Acosta instructs the following:
This class is moderately active with the intention to challenge you a bit more than the gentle class, but still provide enough opportunity for modifications and variations so any practitioner can attend and benefit.
If you have never taken a yoga class or simply prefer to move at your own pace and enjoy the gentle variations of all the postures, then this class is for you.
