Yvonne is known for her inspirational and accessible teaching style. Her classes are breath and alignment-focused while weaving yoga philosophy, mantras, Kirtan music, and humor. She intelligently integrates her knowledge in anatomy, wellness, and fitness into her classes, so modern students can benefit from traditional yoga and meditation. She also plays the harmonium and sings the Sanskrit mantras in her classes.
Yvonne has been teaching yoga since 2012 and has completed multiple lineages of yoga teacher trainings in the San Francisco Bay Area, working with Rusty Wells, Jason Crandell, Amanda Moran and Swamis at Sivananda Ashram.
Before becoming a yoga teacher, Yvonne worked in international finance at the BBC and the Discovery Channel for 20 years. She has worked and lived in London, Brussels, and Moscow. Her hobbies include cooking, reading, and traveling.
