East Meets West Yoga Center

Hannah Baumgardner

I was initially drawn to the practice of meditation, attending the Insight Meditation Community of Washington’s local events as well as a five-day silent retreat. I began practicing yoga in college and after receiving my degree in Religion and Math, practiced at various studios around the area. For six months in 2013, I volunteered at Kripalu and had the opportunity to attend many Kripalu yoga and dance classes, inspiring me to teach the YogaDance that touched me the most: Shake Your Soul.  I was certified to teach in January of 2014 and I am looking forward to sharing the love and joy that I receive from the practice.  In my classes, you can expect to move, be encouraged to feel and experience each moment as it is, and to touch your heart-space.
