E-RYT 200, RYT 500
Celia completed her 230Hour teacher training in 2011, and 300Hour advanced teacher training in 2016, both through Yoga Center of Minneapolis. It was during the 300Hour program that she met her mentor teacher, Kevin Kortan, with whom she studies privately and mentors with for Yoga Well’s 1,000Hour Yoga Therapy Training (hosted by Yoga Center) which will be completed in 2020. Celia has a daily personal practice, and tries to integrate the tools and philosophies of yoga into the rest of her life as well.
Celia believes that the breath and personal experience of posture are of utmost importance, and therefore is less concerned with how a posture looks from the outside than what it feels like. Classes with Celia will focus on linking the breath and body, and seek to create specific outcomes, that affect more than just the outer and physical layers of the body. Varying techniques such as pranayama (breathwork) chanting and meditation will be used towards that aim.
The majority of Celia’s classes at Yoga Center focus on creating comfortable spaces for larger bodied yogis. It is her goal to make yoga accessible and effective for every body so that everyone can have access to these transformative practices!
