Clia's style of teaching incorporates both yin and yang elements into an aligned vinyasa practice. Clia believes the benefits of yoga and meditation are immense, and she teaches in order to share them while also introducing more calm, clarity and connection to and among mind, body and spirit. She believes that through our yoga and mindfulness practices we can learn to be more present, with awareness and compassion, to live our lives authentically.
Clia’s education and experience includes an MA and certification in Educational Therapy, Yoga Alliance Certification, Mindful Schools mindfulness curriculum training and certification through Transform Coaching Academy. She currently teaches yoga privately and through PAMF (teen and prenatal yoga), hosts Mindfulness Workshops for all ages and stages and works one on one with women as a transformational life coach. At this salon, Clia took us through a practice that included both physical asana and mindfulness practices. The sequence was appropriate for all levels of interest - from first timers to experienced yogis. The theme was "renew and rejuvenate" with the intention to learn something new that can be practiced at home. After the yoga and mindfulness exercises, we relaxed while enjoying delicious, healthy and tasty smoothies. There was also massage therapists available to continue the “renewal, recharge and rejuvenation” process.
