Aixa Lee Belville, RYT200
Associate Forrest Yoga Instructor
Certified Core Strength Vinyasa Instructor
Aixa has been committed to Yoga practice since 1999. As a full time designer she developed repetitive stress injuries and poor posture from working on the computer for long hours in conjunction with weak core muscles.
In her quest for healing she was drawn to core & breath centered Yoga practices. She realized that the benefits were not just physical as by connecting and moving from the center we deepen our connection with our true self/spirit. A sense of certainty and emotional independence develop from this practice. The fire in the belly melts away the numbness/blockages that distort our perceptions regarding our inner and outer world.
The Yoga practice as a journey of self-discovery provides growth at all levels. Yoga has been a great tool to cultivate mindfulness and arriving in the present moment, through breath and inner awareness. It has provided Aixa with the strength and endurance to move thru emotional/physical life challenges and has become a nurturing space to cultivate joy and compassion for self and others.
In 2006 she completed the Forrest Yoga Foundation Teacher Training with Ana Forrest & Jonathan Bowra. She assisted Ana & Jonathan during the Forrest Yoga Continuing Education Training for Teachers (FYCET) held at West Hartford Yoga in December 2007 & has assisted Ana Forrest at various intensive workshops throughout the Northeast. In 2008, she completed the Level 1 Resistance Stretching Certification Training with Anne Tierney & Steve Sierra from Innovative Body Solutions. In 2009 & 2010 she completed the Forrest Yoga Mentorship program with our own Forrest Guardian Heidi Sormaz, here at Fresh Yoga. In 2011, she became certified to teach Sadie Nardini's Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga. She is ever so grateful to all the teachers that continue to inspire her in this journey, especially her students.
The breath and the activation of deep core muscles generate the waves that bring your spine into optimal alignment, create heat and maintain the energy contained within the core. The breath & heat generated, nourishes the organs and the nervous system and helps the body heal, detoxify, revitalize and work more efficiently. Yoga helps us connect with our physical/energetic body and how it relates to the world. My intention with this practice is to help people heal, evolve and age gracefully.
Classes are challenging, fun and light hearted, rooted on the core, breath & proper alignment for healing/preventing injuries and finding your flow. Get ready to have fun, work up a sweat and release!!
