Hayley offers a path to strength, self-confidence and awe for the miraculous mechanics of the human body by creating a motivating environment to explore our body-minds from the inside out. Hayley's commitment to radical self-care and the natural world permeate her juicy flow class, inviting you into intimacy with all parts of yourself through the vehicle of the breath.
As a passionate body nerd and philosophy student, she can either be found with her head in a book about human anatomy and technologies of liberation or out in nature, on the TRX or on her mat exploring her own. She encourages her students to be somanauts on and off the mat, intricately exploring where their bodies and minds are balanced and fluid as well as where they get tight and stuck. This intimacy with our inner body translates as greater peace, more easeful relationships and fluidity and joy of movement in class, at work and at play.
In addition to being inspired by the latest myofascial and neuroscience, her teaching is infused with the traditions of Tantric Buddhism, Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, earth wisdom, archetypal mythology, guided visualization and somatic psychology. Each class is based on the cycle of the moon and the seasons through a combination of unique sequencing, challenging asana, meditation and pranayama. As a celebrated massage therapist specializing in chronic pain, she's able to translate the intricacies of healthy movement and how to correct imbalances through restorative alignment with an attitude of compassion, curiosity and playfulness.
