Sydney came to her mat at Release about two years ago. Her journey to crafting this life has been a colorful one. As a disciple of Christ, she has found that yoga can be one of many ways she connects with God. You can count on a fiery flow in her classes with a heavy emphasis on the use of breath as a tool to cleanse the mind and body. Sydney has a burning desire to lead her students on a path of falling in love with yoga and growing towards the knowledge of their true self.
My teaching style is: Challenging, authentic, and explorative. I love pushing my practice to the edge and playing with new movements. I love my core because: It's strong and powerful. It holds the fire to my practice. You must try this healthy snack: Avocado and tomato on whole grain seed toast.
My favorite Sanskrit word or phrase is ... because: Ahimsa: Nonharmning.“Ahimsa” is as the absence of violence but also conscious consideration and love for one’s self and others.
My advice for beginning yogis is: Remember that your practice is an individual process. No one else is inside your body, Listen to it and respect what it tells you.
I’m most grateful for:Every twist and turn in the road that lead me to where I am today. Because it led me to exactly where I'm meant to be - RIGHT HERE! The most exotic place I’ve practiced yoga is: Off the grid in the mountains of Oahu, Hawaii!
