Audra is an incredible instructor, with so much energy & love, both "on and off the mat", carrying lessons and balance into her own daily life. She has good knowledge of philosophy & ancient history, and how to teach,sharing this through the practice of yoga. I was blessed to know her through Wilmington Yoga Ctr. N.C., where she taught for some time, and as a neighbor, before her move to the West Coast. I like her philosophy because it is truth, and how we are taught as instructors to carry out and follow the teaching of yoga according to history. Including group or individual classes, there is a positive attitude and energy and she is also true to form in her dedication to help others learn, at any level of experience. She shares and learns from her own fellow yogis, as we all are students, not only teachers,for life. She knows the importance of proper alignment and care for those in class needing assistance, encouragement to first practice "Ahimsa", Sanskrit for"first, non-harming", as well as no judgement, including of self. She has a great understanding of anatomy. She is always smiling! She is creative, fun and knows how to teach,with compassion, and a true desire to share her skills and also connect with others. I truly miss her here, and encourage anyone to enjoy and definitely seek her out, I cannot imagine a better instructor or any need for improvement with her!
