“I really believe if you can control your breath, you can control your life.” - Autumn
My name is Autumn! I have my 500 RYT. I started doing yoga about six years ago because of anxiety. I quickly found myself doing a flow every time my anxiety started and saw how quickly it diminished. In December of 2018 I decided that it was time to take my practice deeper. I started my 200 RYT certification and later that year I got into a severe accident. Since I had my training I was able to rehabilitate quicker.
In that moment I knew my purpose was to help people overcome challenges mental or physical.
I teach Vinyasa, Yin, and also work with chakras.
I offer reiki sessions as well.
Autumn is currently holding practice at the following times:
Tuesday-Friday 6 am: Vinyasa Yoga
Tuesday-Friday 7 am: Yin Yoga
Tuesday 6 pm: Stars Over Sunflowers Yoga
Saturday 10 am: Stars Over Sunflowers Yoga
