    Irinia Raileanu

    Core Subject: Yoga Instructor

    Irina has a 200-hour Yoga Alliance certificate after studying Ashtanga yoga at Kranti Yoga School in Patnem, India, and teaches Ashtanga Vinyasa and modified Ashtanga classes. From practicing yoga on the beach in Goa to remote villages in Cambodia, to traditional ashrams and discovering Ayurveda in Kerala, to meditation with Buddhist monks in Tibet and hiking the Himalayas, Irina's journey inspired her to see beyond what she has always known of yoga as the physical practice but that of an integrated lifestyle.
