Aina Che’s (E-RYT 500, RPYT) grounded teaching style creates space for students to deepen their personal practice. Her students emerge from their practice with the rich, bright energy that yoga has to offer. She believes that Yoga practice is a method for learning to steady the mind on what is actually happening in that moment. Teaching yoga is not teaching poses, but teaching individuals; so she pays much attention on each one of her students (their bodies and alignments) in class, and does her best to keep the environment safe and full of love. Her way of teaching yoga is direct, intense, compassionate and loving. She believes that focusing on alignment is not just for safety, but also provides gateways to focus and inner stillness.
