Izzy VanHall spent her formidable years competing at the national level in gymnastics, rowing and track and field. She knew how to perform, propel and press forward with intensity and grit. Growing up, Izzy and her mother also practiced yoga together, fostering her interest and skill development. Years later, during Gopi Kinnicutt’s Bhakti Flow workshop in 2007, Izzy signed up for a 200-hour YTT and she knew she was exactly where she needed to be.
Later that year Izzy found the practice of AcroYoga and instantly fell in love. In 2011 she became an AcroYoga teacher which enabled her to evolve into her role as a mentor. This, combined with her experience assisting and facilitating teacher trainings, has empowered her with the tools to offer meaningful reflections to teachers and to support others in their expansion.
She has studied with Shiva Rea, Dharma Mittra, Bonnie Argo, Gurmuk, Jenny Sauer-Klien, Jason Nemer, Lynne Begier, Krishntaki, Kaline Alayna Kelly and many more. She is a Certified Level II AcroYoga Instructor. (Excerpted from backbayyoga.com)
