Even when she first came to yoga as a teenager, Bella was aware of the non-physical, but far more rewarding, spiritual aspects of her practice. She grew as a yogi, and developed that practice. Every new pose Bella mastered was both another physical hurdle overcome and another key to understanding a hidden spiritual reality. Later, she knew something apparent to all who welcome yoga into their lives: that hidden spiritual reality is what matters most, and understanding the universe as the expression of that reality allows us to overcome any hardship or adversity. Bella sees Bella Vida Yoga as not only a way to elevate her own practice, but also as the opportunity to share the insights and perspective from which she has benefited throughout her decades-long yoga journey.
