Phoebe’s passion for movement began as a child finding gymnastics and dance. She discovered yoga in 2000 as an adult and the connection of conscious breath linked with movement was love at first sight for her. Her practice and study of yoga has evolved from dynamic Vinyasa flow, to its polar opposite of Yin yoga, to powerful Jivamukti yoga, and now to a classical Hatha yoga based practice of Hridaya yoga and meditation. The combined practice of contemplative yoga asana and meditation has been a profound source of peace, love, healing, great physical and emotional freedom.
