YOGA & HOLISTIC WELLNESS

HEALING OURSELVES THROUGH ANCESTRAL WELLNESS

About YuWala Yoga & Holistic Wellness

     Vina's goal is to share her teachings through yoga and fitness. To inspire her participants, assist them in identifying a fitness plan for themselves, and to teach her participants grounding techniques that they can use to support themselves in everyday life. 

     Drawing on traditional spiritual values from within Indigenous culture, Vina provides a contemporary and unique approach to holistic wellness. As Indigenous Peoples of the land, we recognize that all living things are interconnected. Through our bodies, our minds, and our spirits we know we are one. To achieve balance, and to live an authentically blissful life, these have a need to be taken care of equally.

     Traditional teachings are presented and intertwined throughout the workshop, along with: the anatomy of the human body, the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, and well defined yoga/fitness techniques that enhance our ability to connect with our physical and spiritual wellbeing. 

“Movement and wellness are vital elements to our survival as human beings in the physical world.”
