Felicita Nieves, RYT 200, discovered yoga in 2007 while attending school but yoga truly found her a few years after when she noticed just how much her daily practice was benefiting her mind, body and spirit. She knew then that this was a feeling that she wanted to share. In 2014 Felicita completed her teacher training under Deborah Williamson of Wild Abundant Life and months later completed Aerial yoga teacher training at Reaching Tree Tops Yoga. Through sweat, laughter and love, Felicita leads a powerfully soothing class. She encourages her students to take chances on their mat, embrace their full potential and to always have fun while doing it. Life's too short to not enjoy the journey as much as the destination.
