East Meets West Yoga Center

Bernadete Alves

Yoga has been a part of my life since 2001 when I start practicing Bikram Yoga by recommendation of a friend to release my back pain and stress. After moving to DC area, by chance, I took a vinyasa class and fell in love with it, so much so, that I sign up for the training. 

I completed my 500hr fluid vinyasa training with Fluid Yoga by Still Studio 2018 and committed myself to keep on learning and expanding my knowledge of other yoga modalities – SPA Yoga, IYI Ashtanga Modified Primary Series, Rocket I-III, Yoga Trapeze, Yin and PurePower.  I feel blessed for my wonderful teachers who shared their love, support and wisdom with me and for the friends I make everyday in this practice. 

Yoga has help me to be more flexible and stronger physically and mentally, and it teaches me everyday to accept myself and to recognize the perfection within my imperfections. Yoga inspires me to be one with everyone.

In my classes, my focus is to facilitate your yoga practice by combining breath, movement and creative sequencing, a dash of inspiration and relaxing savasana.
