Colleen de la Torre

Colleen brings a unique approach to her classes with an emphasis on enjoying and creating a peaceful experience. In teaching, Colleen incorporates her interest in restorative yoga with breath and gentle, flowing postures that increase vitality, deep relaxation and self-awareness. She encourages her students to adapt an attitude of self-acceptance while encouraging them each to listen to the needs of their own particular body. She is a certified ViniYoga instructor and certified in Restorative Flow Yoga after studying with Judith Lasater and Donna Belk. Colleen is a member of the IAYT (International Association of Yoga Therapists) and a Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance. Colleen originally came to yoga with a chronic back injury and discovered its profound healing benefits for herself. After becoming frustrated when she couldn’t find yoga in our community, she decided to open Healthy-Human Yoga in April of 2003; now operating successfully as LIFESTRETCH YOGA.
