Abbey's venture into yoga began with a very physical practice that eventually lead to multiple injuries. These injuries lead her into the field of Structural Integration. While receiving this work and practicing restorative yoga, Abbey began to fully embrace the healing process. She left Kauai to attend the Rolf Guild in Salt Lake City, Utah to learn the Rolf Method, the bodywork that ultimately changed her life.
With her knowledge of the body and love for yoga, Abbey offers a space for people to explore the infinite dimensions of a pose, and practice what feels healthy to them. Since we all have our own definition of what feels good, Abbey's goal for students is to cultivate body awareness so that they can tune in and develop their own style and appreciation for yoga.
