Passion and empathy. Hana Russell infuses these into the practice. Yoga has completely changed her life from the inside out. Having gone through many hardships in life, she has the ability to connect with others on a raw level and help start a new path forward. She worked in the mortgage industry for over a decade and decided one day to quit and start Zuda Yoga's Open Your Heart teacher program. The teachings are from the lineage of Baron Baptiste. This solidified her feelings that there must be more to yoga than the surface level practice she had done for years - there's a whole new way to live! Through a heart connection with others, she wishes to push with permission and passion while helping you find a path to the best version of yourself, which is just waiting to shine.
