Barbara Pearce – yoga instructor Bio
What lights me up about this work is serving others in a way that improves their lives. I have a personality that likes to serve. I worked for years as an administrative assistant and it was my pleasure to make people’s lives more organized and smooth. Now I have the pleasure to work with people who are seeking to feel better, both physically and emotionally, and no one is more delighted than me when people start to feel that way.
What sets me apart from other yoga teachers is that I really meet people where they are on the yoga mat on any given day and I’m committed to bringing them the best yoga for their bodies. Because of that I work predominantly with people who are flexibly challenged, including people in wheel chairs. I work with people who have debilitating illnesses, people who are recovering from an illness, the elderly, and people who are healthy but inflexible. I’m trained in several different modalities of yoga and I can use those different styles to customize a class that works for anyone.
Some things about me that you might not know:
I love a yoga practice that allows me to feel into the postures and truly enjoy the experience – as opposed to rushing through it. I enjoy the sensation of feeling deeply relaxed, grounded and refreshed.
Off the mat I love beautiful surroundings both in my home and in nature, music that makes my heart soar and gives me goose bumps and the smell of a home cooked meal. I love to cook – and by association I love to eat. I’m a green tea enthusiast. I enjoy reading and being transported to another place. I’m an avid student – and it’s my pleasure to share what I learn with others.
I’d very much enjoy doing yoga with you.
