VINYASA


This class is taught by:

Puja Chance

I have been a yoga practitioner since my late teens and became a certified Bikram Yoga instructor in 2007. In 2011 I began my journey in teaching Vinyasa Flow by attending teacher trainings with Baron Baptiste, Mark Stephens and Janet Stone. I love offering both Bikram and Vinyasa yoga to my students and feel blessed to be part of Village Yoga.

Yoga has carved a beautiful path for me, allowing me to dive deeper into my emotions, physical body, and spiritual self. I fell in love with the Village Yoga community when I started taking Bikram classes and meeting all the amazing staff members. The heated classes felt great on my body and the positive results came through in my massage practice. My joints and muscles were feeling better then ever! I love teaching Vinyasa Yoga and am honored to be part of Village Yoga Community.

Kyria Edwards

I cherish how yoga brings people together in a safe space with the collective intention of being happier and healthier. I have been honored with the opportunity to share the gift of yoga with students of all ages and backgrounds. While teaching high school in North Carolina I started a yoga club for teenagers, while living in San Francisco I started a free yoga class for low-income senior citizens, and while volunteering in Armenia I led yoga for elementary children to promote peace and wellbeing.
There has been no other avenue for me that connects body, heart, mind, and spirit as deeply as yoga does. I am always a student in the yoga practice, learning more each time I step onto my mat. I love the profound simplicity of yoga and how it is inherently available to all people, asking only for an open mind and heart from its participants. I am a health advocate and have spent the last ten years embracing a variety of modalities that support health, by serving as a massage practitioner, personal chef, nutritionist, wellness coach, fitness instructor and yoga teacher. It is with this holistic approach that I am honored to lead yoga and continue the path of yogic exploration!

I have been practicing Bikram Hot Yoga for about 10 years now, at first averaging 1-2 times per week for the most part. I was initially drawn towards the energetic and detail-oriented practice as a way to counter-act some of the tightness I was creating in my body by being involved with agricultural labor. I also wanted a strong workout; I think somehow the stress from the heat and the difficulty of the postures helped me feel that much more fulfilled. It was incredibly difficult at first but something kept drawing me back, and there was no denying that even though I felt exhausted directly after class I also felt so much relief and relaxation. Slowly but surely the practice helped me to gain a greater body awareness as well as more intimate connection with my own breath. I began to notice how it was affecting every aspect of my life; difficult, uncomfortable, and challenging situations could be seen in a new light of acceptance by staying calm and connected with the breath. Gradually over the years I became more and more interested in the science of yoga until finally this year I took the step to attend a teacher training. It is still strange to consider myself as a teacher now after this many years as a student but I am so grateful and excited to have the opportunity to share with others this practice which has been so beneficial in my own life.
Build strength gracefully in a breath-inspired, heated, flowing movement class with music.
