Esperanza is a mother, wife, yogi, environmentalist, volunteer and small business owner. She fell in love with yoga when it was first introduced as a new college class in 1990. When she opened a busy medical device manufacturing company, yoga was always there to help bring her back to center. The practice help unfold peaceful presence in stressful situations, as well as, kept her body healthy from sitting all day. This was an inspiration to delve further into the studies of yoga and to share this with others.
Esperanza received her 200 hour certification at Avalon Yoga in Palo Alto in 2010 and has a RYT 200 credential. She began teaching, as well as, running her business. Currently she is pursuing a degree in Physical Therapy Assisting to help facilitate others healing paths through movement of the body. Her practice is richly influenced by the Iyengar method of strong foundations and form, and Vinyasa uniting movement and breath. While guiding yogis through practice, Esperanza hopes that students experience happy epiphanies that they can take off the mat. Her classes celebrate yoga through joy, strength, balance, perseverance and laughter.
