CLASSES:
“About a year ago I began a journey to return to a level of fitness that I once enjoyed, a very humbling and intimidating experience for me. Like so many women, I put everything and everyone in front of my own care for many years. I needed something that would feed both mind and body. I could force myself to the gym but had no passion for it. As we all know to be able to incorporate something into your life you must enjoy it.
Yoga was a very natural choice for me. I wandered from studio to studio, class to class, teacher to teacher, trying to find the right fit for me. I needed someone who would communicate with me, help me keep myself safe from injury, enable me to get the most out of my body each time while reminding me not to push farther than my body could safely go. I found that person in Ileana.
In every class that she leads she guides each student on their own journey while fostering a beautiful communal energy that we as students draw from during our practice. Ileana brings volumes of information to each student to help feed body mind and spirit. From beginning to end her classes envelop each student in a positive environment that fosters both emotional and physical strength and peace.
I have found the ability to nurture myself again, what a precious gift.” – Evie, Coral Springs
