Abby is a certified yoga teacher, recognized by the Yoga Alliance (RYT500, E-RYT200) and has been teaching yoga since 2009. She took her first lessons in yoga as an elementary school student in 1998 and has been at it ever since. In 2008 she first traveled to India to immerse herself in the culture, music, food (!) and Yogic teachings.
After spending 6 weeks in the foothills of the Himalayas practicing yoga and meditation every day, she decided to commit herself even more deeply to the classical teachings. She found a teacher and traveled to Thailand in 2009 to complete her Yoga Teacher Training. Two days after finishing her course she began teaching at the Agama headquarters where she had studied and served as part of the core teaching staff for 4 years.
During her time as a teacher in Thailand Abby also continued with extensive studies in the Esoteric teachings of tantric Hatha and Kundalini Yoga under the guidance of Swami Vivekananda Saraswati. She has received numerous initiations in Hatha Yoga, Pranayama, Laya Yoga (mantra meditation) and Kundalini techniques.
Abby’s grounded teaching style finds its roots in her deep knowledge and understanding of the yogic practices, and is highlighted by her joy of teaching, lightness of heart and even the odd song or two. She enjoys meeting her students where they are at and tailors her classes to the individuals present.
