Total years in practice: 4
My name is Echo. I started yoga about 12 years ago. I took my first class because I thought I needed something to calm my mind. I have always been a thrill seeker and sports enthusiast, and at the time I felt like I needed a shift of energy. Yoga at first was very difficult for me. Slow movements, and a focus on breath at the time did not sit well with me. I felt very unsettled on my mat in a room full of strangers, and the pace of the practice did not organically flow with me.
I am a 500 E-RYT, and have thousands of hours of teaching under my belt. My background began in Hatha, Vinyasa, and Baron Baptiste Power yoga. It evolved to yin, Restorative, Tantra and Baron Baptiste. Like progression my practice evolves as I do. But most of my teachings are quite fluid. I focus on alignment, breath and slow flow. I try my best to create organic movement in my individual practice as well as the practice I share with my community. I can only hope that this is what my students experience and that when they leave the classroom they feel more at peace in their physical and mental bodies than they did prior.
