Since taking yoga classes with Hella, I have learned how to manage stress, not only in class but through all areas of my life. As a working-mother of three, I truly feel like this is something for me that makes me a better person for my family and my colleagues. The bonus is what it’s done for my physique; I’ve shaped and toned areas that I thought were a lost cause!

I'm a five-hundred-hour Registered Yoga Teacher. I completed my training at the Inner Power Yoga studio in Sterling, Virginia, with Ursula Cox in 2017. Additionally, I was trained by wonderful teachers and mentors who graciously shared their experience, wisdom and practice.
My journey as a yogi began after recovering from childbirth. I went back to the gym, intending to strengthen my core and to lose weight. I accidentally landed in a yoga class and immediately realized I’d arrived home. Now, Yoga has been an integral part of my life since 2010. Yoga helped me find inner strength, taught me to be present and mindful both on the mat and throughout my life.
My teaching sessions are approximately seventy-five-minutes. I teach Power-Vinyasa, Yin, and Yoga-Nidra classes in my studio. With a focus on breath, alignment, and mindfulness.
My classes include a diverse community of students of all ages. I customize the sessions to my student’s personal needs. As a teacher, I focus on the whole person. I’m dedicated to meeting students where they are in their journey to wellness, as beginners or advanced yogis. As a community, we celebrate small accomplishments, honoring, living, creating harmony, and unity to support each other through our practice.
As a yoga teacher, I love seeing my students thrive. I teach to connect the body with the mind and the breath, providing a calming effect, positioning each student to use the strength of their body to improve their balance in yoga and in life.
Since starting yoga with Hella my life has undergone a transformation. I feel calmer and more centered. I'm stronger physically, thanks to her individualized instruction. Equally important to me, Hella created a sense of community with caring people that I'm fortunate to call friends.
I come to Hella's class in October 2019 in poor physical condition. Year before I had opened heart surgery. To improve my physical condition I was looking for restorative yoga teacher in the area and find at Terra Natural Wellness. Even doing one class a week, Hella helped me to restore my strenght and restored my posture. She always addresses everybody's concerns in her classes. It's always a pleasure to come in to her class.
Hella, Your class is more of a shared practice with you as our mentor than a group of people who work out together. Many of my other yoga teachers and classes rush through the poses-focusing on the physical side of yoga. My practice with you is more than that. You understand where I am today and help me there while showing me where I am trying to go. There is no pressure to move faster than I am ready for but you give a nudge if I become complacent in a pose. I feel you are more of a mentor than a teacher.
