VICTORIA RUTLEDGE

E-RYT 500 | Grasp at the Root Facilitator 

Raised in the very diverse town of Maplewood, New Jersey, Victoria has always had a connection to spirituality, movement, and social justice. She has completed yoga teacher trainings with Amazing Yoga in Costa Rica, at the Kripalu Yoga Center, and with Zuna Yoga in Bali-and spent 4 years teaching yoga in Los Angeles before moving to upstate New York. Her classes are a mix of exploration, acceptance, and rigor. Connecting breath and body, her goal is to facilitate each student in finding the root of her or his own practice, getting what they need from every class. Centered in love, class becomes a practice of kindness and gratitude for the body and soul. Empowering others and guiding students back to the truth of their practice is her full time job. By centering pleasure, rest, and rigorous self-study, Victoria believes that yoga can be a potent tool to dismantling harmful internalized social structures that keep us from true union. Her classes are intended to create a warm and inclusive atmosphere for all people, while using the strength and power of her lineage as inspiration. She plans on making Yoga her lifelong work.
