Paula has studied yoga since the early 1990's and became serious about it and decided to become a yoga teacher in 2004 earning her 200 hour certification and registration with Yoga Alliance. After several injuries, she found that yoga was the one thing she could still practice that actually helped her gain strength and stability and kept her centered. She studied Ashtanga Yoga (vinyasa - flowing yoga) with Mary Hart at Iron Crow Yoga in Hamilton, MA. She has a strong infuence in Anusara Yoga, in which the primary focus is on proper body alignment. Paula is also certified in Story Time Yoga which is a unique children's yoga class that incorporates simple stories with specific morals that the children reenact through yoga poses. It's a great deal of fun for them and they're learning all the benefits of yoga at the same time.
