Approach

Faith Cornwall is a guide who teaches her students how to communicate with the greatest yoga teacher they will ever have: their own bodies. Whether confronting physical, emotional or mental challenges, or simply wishing to stay in shape or feel more relaxed, Faith believes that knowing our unique anatomy is a great tool. She encourages her students to explore and experiment in her yoga classes, rather than teaching a standard one-size-fits-all “correct” form for each posture.

Having lived with many health problems, Faith loves to teach modifications. She intimately understands how empowering it can be to find our needs met in each pose. Faith encourages an attitude of gentleness and love towards the body, allowing students to increase or decrease the intensity of class as they choose.

A Certified Massage Therapist, she also incorporates self-massage into her classes, to assist in understanding one’s body and broaden the possibilities within each posture. Always interested in the variety yoga offers, Faith has taken workshops with such noted local and international teachers as Judith Hanson Lasater, David Swenson, Gary Kraftsow, Jnani Chpaman, Leslie Howard, Bo Forbes, and Baron Baptiste.

Faith is a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 200 hour level with the national Yoga Alliance (RYT-200) and is working towards her 500 hour certification.
