Aissata Traore

Teacher

Aissata is consistently surprised and inspired by the ways the asanas serve as a vehicle for learning lessons and knowledge that translate off the mat. She is passionate about creating space for students to make these discoveries in a judgement-free space.

Aissata cultivates a creative space where she guides students through a moving meditation, while allowing them the freedom to move however their bodies need them to. She blends a challenging, yet accessible and adaptive physical practice with emphasis on awareness of the breath and mind, all to empower students to find more love and compassion for themselves and others.
