Belle started her yoga practice as great cross-training to her dance career and found it affected all aspects of her life. She completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training through Corepower Yoga in Boulder, Co in 2011 while finishing her masters degree in religious studies and gender. Belle is a Certified Advanced Rolfer™ and Biodynamic Cranial Sacral practitioner. She received her training from the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration in Boulder, where she has studied under Ray McCall, Carol Agneessens, Jon Martine, Russell Stolzoff and Ashuan Seow.
Belle uses her academic background as well as her Rolfing and Cranial Sacral knowledge of structure, alignment, and somatic experience to inform her yoga class. Her goal is to demystify yoga and to help every student in the room understand their own unique body and be confident with modifying any and all poses to best fit their individual needs.
Belle’s approach to teaching is very hands on and she believes that touch is very important to one’s sense of self. A safe, helpful touch can be more powerful than verbal cues alone. With touch, Belle strives to help her students dive deeper into their own bodies, breath, and practice.
