Liana Simone Ponce has been a yoga student for the past nine years and loves being able to share the gift of Yoga with anyone who is ready to learn. Liana received her 500 hour certification in Gentle Therapeutics Yoga from her mentor Master Yoga Teacher Allaine Stricklen. Liana finds that props allow for Yoga to be accessible for everybody, and good alignment is the foundation for all asana. Liana has had a dedicated Ashtanga Yoga practice for the past eight years and has found these two completely different styles of Yoga have balanced her life most. She currently studies under Andrea de la Madriz and is very fortunate to be under her loving guidance. She has also been a student of Day Christensen and Patrick Nolan, as well as studying twice with Sharath Jois, the current Ashtanga lineage holder and grandson of Pattabhi Jois, founder of Ashtanga.
Most recently, Liana completed another training in Yoga Chikitsa Therapy with Manju Jois, the son of Pattabhi Jois, and looks forward to studying again soon under Manjuji. Liana feels that all Yoga has the ability to connect one deeper with their true self, while providing countless health benefits for the body, mind, and soul. Liana believes that Yoga is magic and hopes to see you on the mat soon. Let’s practice and breathe together!
