About Aya:
Aya C. Porte, MOTR/L, RYT-200hr found yoga as a refuge while in graduate school. A perfectionist up until that point, it took almost failing a clinical internship that she realized she needed to make a lasting change from the inside out in order to find inner and outer balance in her life. During her work as an occupational therapist working with at risk-youth and children with special needs population ages 3-21+, she realized how elements of her own yoga practice including learning to breathe and movement helped her stay grounded during even the toughest days at work; she also envisioned the benefits of teaching her students yoga. Aya completed her 200hr with Forrest Yoga in 2017. Aya also has training in teaching yin yoga and kids yoga through ChildLight Yoga. Aya provides accessible yoga for kids, teens, and special needs population. Aya also teaches yoga for self-care to adult caregivers.
