Candace has been a yoga student since 2000 and teaching Vinyasa since 2011; trained at YogaWorks Walnut Creek, CA.; which is a mix of Iyengar, Ashtanga and Viniyoga. Her background in classical ballet and dance led her eventually to yoga for a workout, which over time became her personal healing practice for body, mind and spirit.
No matter what level Candace is working with, you will find her classes to be creatively sequenced, with cues for safe body alignment, and focus on the breath. Her Mindful Flow classes are approached through ‘mindfulness’, (being aware of your body and your breath, observing what you are doing in the moment). Mindfull awareness techniques bring calm to the body, settle the mind in focus, and allow you to feel. Mindfulness and yoga asana (poses) together offer an opportunity for not only a physical transformation, but overall transformation into self-awareness.
She brings the teachings and tools that have helped her to awaken to a conscious living and way more happiness. She draws from different yoga branches such as Ashtanga, Iyengar, Viniyoga, Kundalini; as well as Qi Gong and Ayruveda understanding. She is so humbled to have worked with yoga mentors: Melanie Salvatore August, Mynx Inatsugu, and Angie Norwood at YogaWorks, and Reiki mentors Laurelle Shanti Gaia and Michael Baird at the International Center for Reiki Training, in Sedona, AZ.
