Yoga 4 your heart Studio

Yohanka M
R-YFT 200 Hr Certified Yoga Instructor.

Hello, my name is Yohanka, I was born in Cuba-Havana. Since I was little I always had elasticity, so my mother enrolled me in a dance school and that's where my trip began.

Years passed and I came to this wonderful country, which opened the doors to me with love and loyalty. Here I felt the freedom I did not have in my native country and I feel blessed for it.

There was a moment in my life when I went through a very difficult stage and I remember taking my first yoga class and saying (oh, my God) this is what I want to do the rest of my life.
The connection that Yoga gives me with my Spirit, soul, body and God has no comparison.

After years practicing yoga, today I can thank God for allowing me to obtain my certification as a Yoga Teacher with YogaFaith, a wonderful ministry that I recommend 100%.

Today I can realize my dream by putting my own Yoga Studio with the intention of uniting people in one heart.

Corie Lauremore

R-YFT 200 Hr Certified Yoga Instructor.

My name is Corie Lauremore. I first became interested in yoga a couple of years ago, when I noticed I was losing my flexibility. I went to my first yoga class knowing nothing about yoga. I quickly learned that there are many different types of yoga. I like sampling from them all.

 

My friend and Yoda4YourHeart studio owner suggested I become a certified yoga instructor. I laughed at first but the more I thought about it the more I liked the idea. I became YogaRenew 200 hour yoga teacher certified on November 25, 2019. I look forward to growing as a teacher while helping you grow in your yoga practice.

Anilda Carrasquillo

Anilda Carrasquillo

RYT500 Hr Certified Yoga Instructor.

Anilda’s passion for yoga began in 2008 after attending her first yoga class in search of ways to relieve and to
cope with chronic back pain due to scoliosis and several injured discs in her spine. She quickly felt challenged
through yoga to improve her own physical strength, breathing capacity, and her ability to be calm and
concentrate the roaming tendencies of her ming. Anilda’s regular yoga practice has had a tremendous impact
in her ability to manage and relieve the pain and discomfort of her physical condition and its emotional side
effects. She uses her passion for yoga to inspire her students to live up to their fullest potential. She strongly
believes that yoga can be useful and beneficial to all and her goal is make yoga accessible to everyone. She
gravitates toward sharing the benefits of yoga with people who have physical limitations, various health issues,
and the fast-growing senior population.
Anilda’s teaching style and nurturing spirit offers a practice that is clear, precise, detailed, compassionate and
sensitive. She specializes in therapeutic applications of yoga to stay functional, release tension, stretch and
strengthen the body, relax the mind and lift the spirit. She understands how to modify the postures and
effectively designs safe, creative and enjoyable yoga sequences to make them accessible to virtually anyone
who wants to effectively incorporate yoga into their wellness routine.
Anilda incorporates Pranayama (breathing techniques) and Meditiation as part of her classes. She believes that
our breath is like a diamond and can be used to cut through all of the stress and external pressures the world
brings. “If you are able to use your own breath to relax, to stop anxiety and to develop a one point focus mind,
you will have more energy and a better sense of yourself.”
Anilda currently teaches vinyasa yoga, chair yoga, restorative yoga and kundalini yoga at various locations in
Volusia County. She also offers private classes and will work with your individual needs to get you comfortable
with a yoga practice.
Anilda is a certified yoga teacher: RYT500 hours in compliance with the Yoga Alliance standards and Kundalini
Yoga KRI Level 1. She has also received a certificate of completion from the Duke Institute of Integrative
Medicine in Therapeutic Yoga for Seniors.

Whitney Andrews

Whitney Andrews

R-YFT 200 Hr Certified Yoga Instructor.

Hi my name is Whitney Andrews I became Yoga Alliance 200 hour yoga teacher certified on October, 2020.


Yoga, for me, began as a counterbalance to weightlifting but quickly became my passion. Through my training and my unquenched desire to learn, my practice has been an enormous source of personal and professional growth. My favorite type of yogi is the one that first says, “yoga isn’t for people like me because ‘

“Yoga is truly for every Body and I love the challenge of finding the right style for people who never thought it an option. It is my hope to help facilitate the mind, body, spirit connection through yoga for many years to come.

Jessica Stelcker

R-YFT 200 Hr Certified Yoga Instructor.

So a little about myself my name is Jessica Steckert, I’m originally from New Jersey. I moved here in 2007 with my other half while pregnant with our son, we then had a daughter and while I am lucky enough and grateful to be a stay at home mom it’s hard to not lose yourself in the process of taking care of the house the kids the man child and everything that goes with it. Iv practicing yoga since I was in high school on and off through life and all the adventures that come with it, I had the opportunity to start a RYT200 and it felt as if it was just what I needed to help me find Myself again.

 

One thing that Yoga help me find is it seriously is for everybody, there’s not one person that can’t find some thing beneficial from Yoga. So come and take a class and let’s find what you can gain from yoga.
