I found yoga at a young age after a family member gave me a "Morning Yoga Routine". I remember feeling energized, awake, and at peace in a way that I had never felt before and have been in love with yoga ever since.
Yoga became a large part of my career as well - using it as a tool to warm up and get connected before class or a performance. It was even a part of my curriculum as a BFA Acting student.
I earned my RYT 200 Hour Certification from Younique Yoga in Cedar Grove and I've been incredibly fortunate to have had immediate opportunities to teach. I got hired right out of teacher training and began teaching 2-3 classes each week. I was then asked to run a kids yoga program each week after teaching Meditation Sensation (40 mins of slow flowing yoga and 20 mins of guided meditation to adults) and I fell in love with it. The energy and excitement of children mixed with the connection to mind and body at such a young age filled me with so much happiness that I knew I had to continue following this path. I then got Kidding Around Yoga certified.
Since relocating to NYC, I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to run an after school yoga program at an elementary school. Each day I teach 3 classes and work with kids from ages 5-12 and it's the highlight of my week.
Very few things fill me with joy the way that sharing yoga, as an instructor and as an eternal student, does. I hope to continue to bring those same things I found as a little girl to the mat every class as I share the power of yoga with my students of all ages. I stand by the principle that yoga can be for everybody and we can all benefit from practicing the mind & body connection to achieve true, actual presence of each moment.
"Paige is a magnetic force field, her positivity is infectious and people are drawn to her classes for this reason. She makes yoga feel attainable no matter what level you are at. She embraces your being perfectly imperfect and challenges you to push yourself while also having the wherewithal to listen to where your body is at in the moment. I would highly recommend Paige's class!"
Practice with me!
