Magnolia Rasak

Magnolia discovered yoga at the age of 16, and it was love at first class! She began teaching in 2002, and has traveled the world studying various forms of yoga and movement. Magnolia is drawn towards the innate wisdom held in the body which cultivates a deeper awareness between movement, breath, mind and heart. With her background in dance, gymnastics and yoga, her classes utilizes the physical as a means for deeper exploration into the subtle energies at play in our lives. Her studies have guided her throughout India, Thailand, Mexico, Bali, and the U.S. She is drawn to the practice yoga not only for the asana (physical) benefits, but for the greater way of life that yoga encompasses. Non-violence, compassion, awareness, mindfulness, acceptance, and connection to all Beings.

As a yoga instructor, Magnolia interweaves her background in Hatha, Vinyasa, Kundalini, and Tantra yoga along with ecstatic dance and 5 Rhythms into her teachings. She guides her students towards a state of physical strength, inner harmony, and self transformation through movement practices. She encourages her students to cultivate a deeper awareness of their physical body, while simultaneously expanding the awareness between mind, body and spirit.
