Leticia Alvarez first became interested in yoga when her friends suggested it would help her focus and calm her high energy. “It took a few classes for me to understand what it meant to slow down, turn inward and feel the full benefits of yoga”. She continues to loves yoga for all its transformative powers, physical and otherwise and delights in sharing those with her students. She emphatically knows yoga will always be a part of her life and states “Yoga is my medicine”.
Her classes will be challenging, yet safe using the biomechanics of alignment. Classes begin with a heart-centered theme and challenge one to go deeper, both on the matt and off.
Leti is a registered RYT-200 with Yoga Alliance receiving her certification in an intense immersion program from Integral Yoga Institute, a vibrant spiritual center founded by Sri Satchidananda that integrates all the branches of Yoga in order to help one find inner peace and joy, a philosophy she firmly believes. She is also Anusara Inspired certified in the Anusara Yoga™ method. Anusara yoga unifies the Universal Principles of Alignment with a heart quality. Leti also teaches children’s yoga. She enjoys connecting with children through the gifts of love, laughter and the ancient practice of yoga. Leti has been fortunate to study with many influential teachers all of whom have had an impact on her practice. She is also very connected to the community doing a lot of Seva work in order to give back to others.
When she is not teaching yoga, you can find Leti enjoying hikes and biking on one of many parks and greenbelts in Austin, plunging into a great novel, writing, or connecting with family and friends.
