I tried Yoga for the first time my freshman year in college. Along with my RA and peers, I followed a guided video in our dorm common room. I could barely keep up with the number of times we were asked to place more body weight into our hands and bring our hips above our heads. I left, bewildered by how sweaty and challenging it was (and half hoping I'd never be asked to participate again). I promptly forgot the experience once my body stopped aching a few days later. I came back to Yoga in 2016 when one of my dance teachers recommended it as a way to support my dance training. I felt a grounded awakening, a slowing down of my mind, and presence. Yoga and meditation soon became a way for me to get closer to myself.
In 2017, I completed a 200-hour RYT Vinyasa Yoga teacher training program with JP Centre Yoga. During the training, I studied under Daniel Max, Alana Brennan, Magi Pierce, and Tim Kelleher. I also completed Alana Brennan's mentorship program. I taught at 4 Corners Yoga + Wellness in Dorchester, Massachusetts. I recently became certified as a Restorative Yoga teacher under Brenna Matthews and Alex Bauermeister (25-hour RYT).
Yoga has the capability to ground us, decondition our minds, and bring us closer to ourselves. When I teach, I strive to create a safe and inclusive space in which anyone can access this valuable practice from wherever they are physically and emotionally. I offer ample modifications and tools that students can take with them off the mat after class.
I am available for online group classes, privates, and workshops.

"Hanne has been doing one-on-one yoga sessions with me over the last year, first in person and later online when the pandemic hit. The experience with working with Hanne has been wonderful; she is knowledgeable, thoughtful, always open to changes and adjustments according to my needs and absolutely a pleasure to spend time with. In our time together I have been able to reconnect with my yoga practice after I had spinal surgery in 2019 in a mindful and purposeful way" - Isabel Q.
