Due to exceptional interest in the Yoga Basics Series at Center on Halsted, I decided to bring on another yoga teacher to give students more individual attention.
A San Antonio native, Blanca has been practicing yoga since 2002. In 2009 she moved to Chicago. After bouncing around from neighborhood to neighborhood, yoga class to yoga class, she finally settled in Logan Square and made Tula her yoga home.
As a yoga student Blanca had to relearn yoga to fit her plus-size body. Thankfully, her instinct along with the insight of teachers she not only made use of props and modifications she was also encouraged to become a certified yoga teacher through Global Yoga and Wellness Center in Chicago under the direction of Rhonda Kantor.
Blanca strives to create an environment that cultivates positive body image, self-awareness, and compassion. Off the mat she teaches poetry and gives back through community outreach.
There are still a few spots to join me and Blanca. Class are held at the Center on Halsted, Sundays July 13-August 17th from 5-6:15pm.
This series is appropriate for beginners or anyone interested in a deliberate yoga practice at a slower pace. Each week will build upon material covered in the previous week as the class move move through standing poses for grounding, sun salutations to build heat, twists and hip openers to detoxify, backbends to open your heart, and even inversions to gain new perspective.
Register and hold your spot by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org and pre-paying here. You can also pay by check or cash at the first class if that is better for you.
