I noticed how the practice of yoga was helping me in a lot more areas than just the mental and physical part….and I just loved the feeling of it. Now I want to share with others one of my passions.

Sywann - Yoga Instructor
Sywann attended her first Bikram yoga class in November 2005, and a love affair began. Prior to this new-found love, she had lived her life in what author Mary Beth Jones calls the Sprinkler Phenomenon of Management. The grass immediately surrounding the sprinkler head is brown while all the energy and drive goes to the outer reaches of the yard. The grass closest to the source of water is left dry. When you focus all your energy on things outside yourself, you are doomed to a mental, spiritual, and/or physical breakdown. The healing that came from her yoga practice inspired her to share this gift with others. She has been teaching since 2007. Her professional expertise is with Bikram Yoga, Yin Yoga, and Yoga Nidra.

I spent about 2 years in India studying primarily Iyengar and Hatha yoga, Pranayama, Vipasana and guided meditation. I also Teach pilates, barre, salsa and cycling. I'm a personal trainer, holistic health coach, Reiki master, and pranic healer. I've concurrently been a Biology and Chemistry high school teacher nationally and internationally.
