Ayla Sarnoff is a 200-HR certified yoga teacher and has trained in and studied restorative yoga, Kaiut Yoga, yoga for cancer survivors and prenatal yoga. She continues to study with experienced teachers to deepen her own understanding.

Ayla has been teaching yoga in various settings for almost 8 years. Four years ago, Ayla began to teach yoga at retreats all over the world with spiritual teacher and empowerment speaker, Bentinho Massaro. She met many dedicated spiritual seekers who wanted to continue to practice with her at home, which inspired her to create online classes accessible to everyone regardless of where they lived. She began to develop her video classes that use a combination of passive and active movements to direct energy, improve circulation, help maintain strong and healthy joints, and promote the relaxation response.

Ayla's understanding of yoga is a graceful balance of effort and surrender, an organic process cannot be monitored intellectually, nor controlled mentally, and can only be accessed through direct experiencing. 

Ayla instructs her classes in a manner that is suitable all ages, abilities and degrees of fitness, and she especially works to acknowledge students with injuries or physical restrictions. 

In addition to her yoga background, she has nearly a decade of experience as a nutritionist and holistic cooking instructor. She formerly worked for the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine, teaching nutrition and cooking classes in corporate and medical settings in multiple cities and states around the US.
