Serena Popoae, RYT 200: Serena’s yoga journey began in 2007 in Athens, Ohio.  Serena initially came to yoga to help with chronic pain from injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident years ago.  Yoga quickly became more than a source of pain management; it became a tool for life transformation.  Serena completed her 200 hour certification at Open Space Yoga studio in Hawaii, as a Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance with Mary Bastien and Jennifer Reuter in 2015.  Yoga has opened doors for Serena to develop a balance between strength and flexibility, contraction and expansion, movement and stillness in both body and mind, connecting the two as One.

Serena is passionate about living a healthy well balanced life full of meaning, growth and an abundance of love.  She is dedicated to her meditative practice where she feels she can access great wisdom, love, and presence.  Her classes are mind-fullness based and steeped in philosophy, flow and alignment.  Serena is dedicated to sharing the beauty and magic of what Yoga can bring to life.
