Ava Tyler was introduced to yoga 32 years ago as a dancer.
Her enthusiasm and dedication for the yoga practices eventually led her into a path of teaching.
Ava is committed to living an authentic yoga lifestyle, cultivating daily spirituality and providing service in the form of passionate guidance in all of her classes.
Ava's teaching derives from a core belief that the breath is the sutra thread which connects who we are individually to all that is universally and, that all great teachers remain students themselves.
Initially certified in Kripalu Yoga, Ava has spent many years studying various in-depth lineages of Yoga. Today, Ava offers an Iyengar inspired focus in her studio classes. Since 2003, her studies with Rodney Yee have also remained central to her practice.
Dawn is a certified Kripalu Yoga instructor, and is also certified by Jennifer Reis to lead Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra® and by Alison west/Yoga Union to instruct yoga with ropes and slings.
She spent 18 months training extensively with Lee Albert, and has completed professional-level certification in The Albert Protocol for Muscle Pain Relief™.
Teachers include Alison West, Lee Albert, Jennifer Reis, Carollanne Crichton and Liza Dousson, which has enabled her to encourage others that yoga is not only possible for every human being, with regular practice it reunites life with balance.
