Yoga is a beautiful dance between breath and movement. It invites us to transition from the outside noise and routine and step onto the four corners of our mat where the moving body becomes an expression of the soul. We find discipline, acceptance, compassion, depth, growth, and awareness through yoga. Although the physical movement of asana in yoga invites healthy transformations in our bodies, the real gift of yoga comes from the deepening awareness and growth happening in our mind and souls.
With an extensive dance and fitness background, yoga took Tiffany by surprise in its ability to deliver a full body workout, but the true revelation unfolded in the peace and stillness it offered her mind and pure joy it brought to her heart while practicing. She was able to not only find herself through yoga, but also use yoga as a tool to ground, connect and evolve through internal inquiry. As a mother of 3 yoga's ability to offer inner peace, a deepening of spiritual growth and a slower, more mindful approach off of the mat are just a few reasons she kept to the practice. Yoga held space for her to show up and put in the work to become her greatest self. It revealed astonishment for every moment offering a greater appreciation of presence. After practicing for some time, she knew deep in her heart that yoga was her calling and she wanted to pursue a deeper yoga education so she could share this beautiful experience with others.
She completed her 200 RYT yoga certification through Annie Carpenter's SmartFLOW at Yoga Sanctuary in Las Vegas under the guidance of Rachael Sellars and Angela Wright. SmartFLOW is a registered Yoga Alliance certification program that celebrates the innate intelligence of sensational, flowing movement. SmartFLOW couples classical yoga, with its rigor and discipline, to the modernity of anatomy and fluid transitions.
Through her training education and being 4 months post natal with her third, her passion for yoga bloomed in a new direction. Merging the idea of SmartFLOWs alignment based movements with the element of subtle body connection at the most pivotal points in a woman's life beautifully articulated itself into a deeper exploration of pre and post natal yoga and just how she could create an environment to support a mother at every stage. Through her personal experience of motherhood, pregnancy, delivery and recovery she knows just how important physical, mental and spiritual re-connection are during each stage. Workshop offerings are being created in order to deliver the mother an opportunity to connect on every level with themselves, thus facilitating and holding a sacred space for them to realize their value and potential as beautiful beings on this earth. She seeks to help others thrive in life by creating space for them to nurture their bodies, minds, souls and spirits with the abundance, astonishment and presence yoga offers.
“Although our culture tends to shrink yoga to mean only the physical, asana element I believe that yoga truly is a shamanic path, capable of leading us through transformation on all levels. Yoga reminds us what is real, and thus who we are — the light radiating from within.” - Annie Carpenter
