Clarissa Hidalgo (RYT 200)
Clarissa received her yoga teacher certification in the Spring of 2017. She began practicing after being treated for Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis in 2010 ,and experiencing mobility issues in 2012. Since the beginning yoga benefited her physically, yet since her training she realized the various emotional, mental, and wellness benefits of her practice. Receiving her BA in psychology from the University of California, Merced in 2012, she was not only able to incorporate and recognize the various benefits of yoga physically and mentally, but tap into the mindfulness and self-healing powers as well.
In Clarissa’s classes she emphasizes the importance of breath and self-awareness while embracing the beauty of modifications and self-love through life’s ever changing moments. Her yogic practice embraces Hatha, Yin, and Restorative Yoga. And after becoming pregnant in the Spring of 2015, she discovered and fell in love with prenatal yoga as well.
After delivery of her beautiful baby girl, she embraced her renewed sense of self and life, realizing that after many years she would finally fulfill her destiny to become a diffuser of yogic wisdom. Her personal philosophy is, YOGA IS FOR EVERYONE, EVERYTHING, AT ANY TIME!!
