through the body, connect to soul

Healing Chair Yoga


This class is taught by:

Tyler Huling

Tyler practices yoga in a continued effort to shift into a place of clarity. She gets there in some moments and doesn't in others, all the while trying not to take it too seriously. She teaches what she knows - what feels genuine in each moment. Her classes offer accessibility, a grounding energy, and the invitation to play. Tyler embraces the imperfect perfection of being a human and encourages others to do the same. She gives thanks to all the teachers along the path - both intentional and unintentional.
