Embodied Core Exploring our Field of Tone

Alina Hernandez

For the past 2 decades I have dedicated my life to teaching yoga, helping people feel and live a better life in the same way that yoga has transformed my life.  I was a dancer with ABT for twelve years and also performed on Broadway in Phantom of the Opera. The stress and the wear and tear on my body and mind from that period made me realize I needed to make a change.I was told by a doctor to start Iyengar yoga, and I've never looked back. Yoga saved my life and now I give back to my community the gift of healing thru yoga.

I’ve witnessed many people in my community transform their bodies, minds, and lives thru yoga. There is nothing that helps me sleep better at night and brings me more joy than watching this change starting to take place. I know it well!
