As a dedicated student and teacher of the flow, Abbé offers to you an inspiring yoga experience. The root intention of Abbe’s teaching is empowerment. Empowerment through integrity and inquiry, learning not only the hows, but the whys of the practice.
Abbe’s signature practices are her own deeply researched, biomechanic blend of Vinyasa, Budokon (think hatha infused martial arts), Functional Range Conditioning and eastern meditation. Ideal for the curious student, Abbe’s informative and captivating teaching style will enlighten you of the whys and hows of the practice and encourage you to dive deeper by cultivating a comprehensive understanding of the human body and underlying spirit.
Abbe classes are specifically designed to take you deeper into your practice, to peel away the layers of doubt and self-limiting behavior. Her classes, workshops and trainings inspire strength, growth and presence, all the while fostering a joyful environment where students can playfully discover their evolutionary edge.  With Abbe you will explore the universal concepts of alignment and effort in the body- the big ideas of how to move better, practice confidently and live consciously.
Expect to flow, move, dance, laugh and most importantly, dive deeply into yourself.  Abbe’s life is built around growth and empowerment, and that is what she will inspire in you.
