TEACHING MISSION & STYLE

AVALON_TINA_REALE003_thumb[1]

Tina discovered the practice of yoga in 2009 when recovering from an eating disorder and unhealthy relationship with her body. The empowerment and wholeness she felt following those first yoga sessions sparked a fire inside, leading her to pursue the opportunity to share that same empowerment of yoga with others.

Having herself gone from a place of brokenness to wholeness through yoga and her personal faith, Tina aims for students to find that same place of inner belief and self worth. She pours her encouraging and energetic spirit into each and every class, with the goal of aiding others to find and embrace their full potential. Tina believes we each have infinite value, but we must come to acknowledge, believe in, and own it. Yoga provides a safe, uplifting space to do so.

In Tina’s classes, tap not only into your inner strength, but also deepen your physical practice thanks to Tina’s accessible approaches to each posture and alignment based cueing. With creative sequences and a playful spirit, you will be sure to find adventure and self discovery on your mat. Tina’s mission is for each student to leave with renewed energy, an empowered spirit, and, most importantly, a smile.

Tina earned her 200 Hour level of yoga teacher training through Red Hot Yoga in Atlanta. Tina also holds accreditation as a Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. When not teaching yoga, you can find Tina spending time with her husband and two kids or building community as an ambassador for lululemon.

Hi Tina,
We are in the process of updating our “Healthcare Consumerism Guide” here at OEA Choice Trust. We offer grant dollars to Oregon school districts, ESD’s, and Community Colleges to help them get started in a wellness program. I am researching articles that we can put in our guide to help these school employees with different ideas on how to help themselves get healthier. I am very interested in your “30 Instant Ways to Improve Your Health and Fitness” article on your website and was wondering if we could have your permission to use this information in our guide. Thank you in advance for your time and have a terrific day!
Lisa
