Hannah began her career studying fashion design at Pratt institute in Brooklyn NY. It was there where she was first exposed to the practice of yoga. After a grueling first semester she was blown away by the change that her new found practice of yoga had brought her. In the pursuit of deepening her yoga practice, and also taking her first steps towards teaching, she ended up traveling to India where she spent 6 months exploring the intricate balance of yoga and spirituality.
Her classes are dynamic Vinyasa Flow integrating alignment, core work, mudra, kriya, and Pranayama techniques. Hannah is known for her inspirational storytelling, lighthearted nature and creative sequencing. Passionate about cultivating yoga for everyone her asana practice and spiritual teaching are routed in the ultimate foundation.. embracing your whole self. She leads workshops in Italy and the States, focusing on arm balances, Vinyasa flow and fearless living. Each class reflects the kind of woman she is herself: strong, fun, and full of joy.
