Reyna Gonzalez, RYT, enrolled in Yoga Haven’s pilot Teacher Training back in 1998
in order to deepen her understanding of yoga.
While teaching yoga was not her original goal, the physical practice and the deeper understanding of yoga philosophy, inspired her to want to share the benefits that yoga had to offer.
Shortly after she started teaching, she found out she was pregnant and she quickly felt
the need to modify her rigorous Vinyasa practice.
The need to modify her practice led her to study various styles of yoga such as Viniyoga, Iyengar, Somatic, Restorative, Prenatal and Postnatal yoga in order to be able help herself and others address the changing needs of their bodies.
Over the course of 15 years, Reyna feels honored to have introduced many students from infancy into adulthood the joy of yoga.
In addition to her 200 hour certification from Yoga Haven, Reyna has studied Restorative Yoga with Judith Hanson Lasater, Yoga Spirit Teacher Training Course with various teachers including Donna Farhi, and Shiva Rea, Pregnancy Yoga with Janice Clarfield, Itsy Bitsy Yoga for Babies and Tots with Helen Garabedian
and Yoga through the Jaguar Path with Ray Crist and Amy Webb.
