Believing that anyone can begin their own yoga journey at any time, I try to teach each class to the level of the students that are present. I am forever growing in my own practice as a student and a teacher. I approach each class as an opportunity to slow down, to notice our breath and bodies, and to soften our stories. A practice is a moment to become curious of our experience in our breath, body and inner workings. The movement that we find on the mat is an opportunity for play and discovery. And the foundation of a practice, where we begin and where we end, is the breath. That is all that is needed. In each class offered, my hope is to create opportunities for all levels of experience to explore.

I have had the honor of guiding individuals through a yoga practice since 2007 and more specifically vinyasa yoga flow since 2011. My aim is to meet students where they are in their journey and guide them on their path to inquiry of their breath and body and all the spaces in between. I bring a focus of alignment with a touch of playfulness to my classes. Expect to sweat, laugh, and hear your breath, and you may even soften your mind. My background in dance infuses my class with my deep love of music. As a massage therapist I bring my knowledge of anatomy and the human body into our practice on the mat. The path of being a student and teacher of this thing we call yoga has brought me joy and connection not only with myself but with a greater community focused on self-awareness, compassion and kindness for ourselves, for those we hold close and this planet as whole.

I have studied extensively with Janet Stone and Erika Abrahamian, and have spent several years studying the Mysore Ashtanga Yoga practice. I have also had the honor of studying with Kino MacGregor and Lino Miele. These days as a mother my newest and most profound teacher is my two year old daughter.

I have had the honor of leading yoga retreats since 2018. You can learn more about me at pujachanceyoga.com
