Yoga & Meditation Instructor
If you live the questions, life will move you into the answers. – Deepak Chopra
Ariana is a yoga and meditation instructor providing virtual group meditation classes as well as one on one customized yoga sessions. Ariana completed her yoga teacher training at Kula Kamala Foundation & Yoga Ashram in August 2017. She has continued her education in the field of yoga by participating in various workshops in Costa Rica and Argentina. In addition to being a Certified Yoga Instructor, Ariana is also certified in Reiki 1.
Years ago, Ariana began her wellness journey at the age of 16. She struggled with discomfort from scoliosis and had been seeing a massage therapist. Her massage therapist suggested that she try yoga to help relieve the tension she felt in her body. At the time, Ariana had been longing for something to make her feel more connected to herself, other people, and a higher power. When she went to her first yoga class, she had felt a sense of community, connection, and love that she had not felt in a very long time. It was from that point on that she made a commitment to better her life and make an effort to share with others all that she was learning through yoga and meditation.YNow, she views the practice of yoga as a tool to prepare students for a deeply meditative and enlightening experience. Offering modifications when it is necessary and in a non-competitive and encouraging atmosphere, Ariana guides students to feel into their own bodies. Once the restlessness of the body has been calmed though asana practice, the consciousness can now be directed inward. She integrates other holistic healing modalities such as breath work, reiki, scalp massage, aromatherapy, sound healing, and EFT tapping.
Ariana’s vision is to guide students in experiencing not only the physical benefits of yoga, but the deep emotional release that this practice can promote as well. The style of yoga she specializes in is Haha Yoga (particularly restorative yoga, yin yoga, and slow flow vinyasa) as well as Prenatal Yoga.
Additionally, Ariana enjoys reading, dancing, making crystal jewelry, traveling, spending time with her partner Colby, and going on hikes with their dog Runa. They are expecting their first child in June of 2021. Ariana aims to support people in the community on their journey towards achieving optimal health in every aspect of life.
