Babette’s Yoga practice began in high school but her interest in Yoga vastly increased in 2009 while she was living and working in New York City, where her yoga practice became a highly effective way of decompressing from the busy city life.
Yoga and mediation made such a positive difference in her life that she decided to deepen her practice and enroll in Shambhava Yoga at the Shoshoni Ashram of Rollinsville, Colorado. Life at the Ashram immersed her in the Yogic lifestyle. There she studied spiritual philosophy, meditation, mantras and the art of asana practice. Babette received her Certification in 200-hour Hatha Yoga.
In June 2016 she was certified in Radiant Child Yoga at Kripalu. She loves working with all people and hopes to guide her students into places where they can discover new things about themselves.
Her classes incorporate an energizing flow while moving with the breath. They help to strengthen and balance the body and mind so that positive energy can shine through in everyday life.
