IrinaXara has been walking the mind-body path since 2005 and began studying yoga with sights on teacher training in 2011. Lucky enough to make the acquaintance of Elizabeth Romero, an Iyengar-based Orange County instructor, Irina’s yoga journey blossomed forward into hopes of sharing the gift with others. She finally earned her yoga teacher training with AFAA in September 2013 in Hatha Yoga style.
Having been involved in performing and teaching bellydance for several years, IrinaXara’s yoga practice emphasis is on restorative techniques, highlighting the importance of modification and body awareness. She has experience with many populations, from active athletes, to dancers, to those rehabilitating injuries. She reminds her students that proper form, thought and practice, not linear progress, are of utmost importance in yoga, and enjoys concluding the practice with a general self-help meditation.
