Experience and Background:
After practicing and studying yoga in all sorts of places, including Utah, Texas, New Zealand, India, Pennsylvania, and Panama (where she lived in a remote indigenous village for two years as a Peace Corps volunteer), Aleah has been teaching yoga in Boulder since 2012. She is also currently a graduate student at the University of Colorado working on a PhD in civil engineering, with research on glaciers and ice sheets, and spends quality chunks of time in the mountains, running trails, skiing bumps and trees, backpacking, and simply being.
Aleah practices yoga to cultivate clarity – in the body, in the mind, in everything we experience – that sense of fully being, even in the midst of all the doing.
