VALERIE WARREN

I have lived most of my life playing small. Through my yoga practice, I have had to let go of those things holding me back – a career I hid behind, relationships that no longer served me, societal stereotypes that I expected myself to live up to as a mother, wife and woman.

My inner voice has been begging me to play BIG – to be AUTHENTIC — no matter what anyone thinks.I am a student of this practice just like you.

Pushing myself to my edge and finding some comfort there on the mat has gotten me to this point. Authentic Yoga Life IS my edge.

I created this place to hold me accountable to staying PRESENT, playing BIG and being REAL.

I hope you find AYL to be the safe, supportive space that challenges you to explore all of the beautiful possibilities that are uniquely yours. Hold yourself accountable — we’ll do the same. Doesn’t your life deserve it?

AUTHENTIC YOGA LIFE OFFERS CLASSES INSPIRED BY THE PHILOSOPHY AND SEQUENCING OF THE BAPTISTE POWER VINYASA FLOW. WE BELIEVE IT IS ESSENTIAL TO ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOUR BODY, PRACTICE AT YOUR OWN LEVEL, AND CHALLENGE YOUR EDGE.

 
Liz When medication didn’t help my anxiety and depression, I found yoga. My practice would calm me down and help me de-stress but I never felt like I was bettering myself for my own health and for my relationships with others. Then I found Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga. Not only did Authentic Yoga Life quickly become my favorite place to be but it was the first place I felt comfortable being myself. As my Baptiste practice grew, I became aware of how I was acting on and off the mat. I learned where I was playing small in life, giving my power to others and how I was not being real with myself and those around me. That’s what brings me back to my mat each day – to come face to face with my demons, accept them, love them for what they are and move on. My practice holds me accountable for being a yes to love, non-judgement and forgiveness. It’s these characteristics that I strive to embody in my classes – total acceptance of where you are right here, right now. Because yes, you can do it and yes, you are enough.

AnaLouise I practice both power and yin yoga every day. My daily practice keeps me centered, grounded, and focused; I experience less stress, more joy, and greater mental clarity. I appreciate Baptiste power yoga because I know I’ll always get a great, full-body workout; and I love Authentic Yoga Life because it offers an inclusive, affirmative space and a friendly community.    I teach yin yoga–a gentle but rigorous practice with primarily seated or reclined poses.  Our bodies talk to us all the time, but typically we’re too busy to listen.  Yin yoga invites us to slow down and use each pose as an opportunity to learn from our bodies. In my classes, I use breath and gentle cues to encourage students to look inward and listen to their bodies.  When you take my classes, I want you to feel revitalized and relaxed, with increased mental focus, enhanced intuition, and new appreciation for your body’s wisdom.

Audrey After struggling with anxiety and eating disorders, I found yoga ten years ago and experienced so much healing. I especially love Baptiste yoga because the focus on engaging, strengthening, and integrating your body while letting go of all the ways your mind holds you back has helped me claim my personal power. This practice allows me to feel strong in my body and clear in my mind. Authentic Yoga Life to me means belonging and that's what I hope to foster in my classes. I try to make sure my classes feel challenging but inclusive. I want you to really listen to your body-whether that's taking your plank to the next level or taking a child's pose. I will hold space for you to explore how to find whatever you need on your yoga mat.

Abby I came to yoga craving movement and a workout and I found so much more than that. After realizing yoga needs to be in my life everyday my whole way of being changed. I became aware, balanced, more grounded, and not just on my mat but in my everyday life. In my classes, I cultivate a safe space to be raw, and messy. A space to have grace for yourself and practice in a sacred environment. Authentic Yoga Life has created a space of inclusiveness and gratitude that I hope to share with each one of you.
