Hannah Muse :
Ever since yoga found her, Hannah’s heart has been bursting open and spilling over with love. She feels so blessed to live the life of a yogini and is honored to share it with YOU.
Her classes are more than just a series of physical poses: although you will probably sweat, her teachings encompass pranayama, meditation, mudra, mantra and philosophy. Her nurturing guidance combines therapeutic physical alignment with dynamic playful sequencing that create pathways for students to heal at the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. She is also known for her epic storytelling and that sweet Bhakta voice that stirs deep in your soul.
With a background in environmental advocacy and social justice, Hannah is deeply committed to making the world a better place, and serving her local community. She is the Founder of the yoga program at Siena House, serving homeless women and their babies during pregnancy and postnatal, and she also serves on the board of the Yoga for All Movement, whose mission is to make yoga accessible to all. She has been voted as one of the Top Three Yoga Instructors in the Santa Cruz Good Times for the past four years in a row. Hannah is devoted to sharing the sacred gifts of yoga that saved her life, healed her body, uplifted her depression and awaken her heart each day.
Hannah has completed extensive training in yoga anatomy, philosophy, meditation, pranayama, vinyasa, hatha, restorative, prenatal/postnatal, and is certified at the highest level of Yoga Alliance (E-RYT-500, RPYT). Her current studies include Ayurveda and Mindfulness & Neuroscience. She teaches classes, workshops and retreats in Santa Cruz, CA and internationally. Hannah is co-creator and co-teacher of the beloved Roots Yoga Teacher Training, as well as Mount Madonna Center’s Prenatal Teacher Training. She has been a featured presenter at Symbiosis, Bhakti Fest, Shakti Fest, Electric Forest and many other festivals and conferences around the world.
She is eternally grateful to all of the teachers who have blessed her along this path, especially her 7 year old daughter/Zen master Ruby Bea.
