Vinyasa Flow: Experienced


This class is taught by:

Moira Anderson

CYT, E-RYT 500, Certified Pilates Teacher, Director

Moira is a Certified, Professional Level Kripalu Yoga Teacher & Teacher Trainer, registered with Yoga Alliance at the E-500 hour Level. Sharing her love of yoga with students, directing programs and workshops at River Rock Yoga, and teaching workshops regionally, is her joy and her passion. Moira's classes offer students compassionate self-observation, gentle alignment cues and empowering vinyasa flow. Breath awareness and exploratory, joint freeing movement are also emphasized. The nurturing environment she creates in her sessions, as well as her understanding of anatomy and physiology, inspire a healthy, open body and a focused, relaxed mind.

"I encourage students to make peace with their bodies and to recognize their innate wisdom, and wholeness in class, and in their lives." Moira is continually inspired by the transformational, healing power, strength and peace generated by the practice of yoga. She sees the connection of mind, body and breath as means to be present in the here and now. Awareness of the present moment brings stillness and the ability to experience deep joy and contentment.

Moira is honored to have taken over 200 hours of alignment based yoga & philosophy workshops with Doug Keller. She has also studied with Erich Schiffman, and finds his freedom based yoga inspirational. Moira completed Shiva Rea's Vinyasa Flow Teacher training in 2004. It continues to be a major influence on her teaching style, as do her studies of Jivamukti yoga with Sharon Gannon & David Life. Moira teaches the energetic, body balancing core work of pilates, and is a Certified Pilates Instructor in the style of Balance Point Pilates.

Moira is a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists. She spends two days a week teaching therapeutic yoga at a psychiatric center, using yoga to assist adults and adolescents dealing with PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, OCD, ADHD and Substance Abuse.

An English literature graduate of The Colorado College in Colorado Springs, CO, she minored in Performing Arts/Dance as well as Elementary Education, receiving an Elementary Teaching Certification.
