Akeesha Simmons


Akeesha completed her Hatha Vinyasa RYT-200 certification in the spring of 2017 from the Kula Yoga Project in New York City and completed an additional certification in Trauma-Informed Yoga from Living Yoga in Portland, Oregon. Her training was influenced by Iyengar Yoga and Ashtanga, which inspires her class sequencing. She takes an integrative approach to health and class creation, combining her psychology training and research, anatomical alignment, flowing meditation, pranayama, and the mind/body connection for a well-rounded class. She believes that the teachings of yoga should be accessible to all, no matter race, age, gender, or creed and holds space for community members to practice self-study, as she believes the body holds a natural wisdom and can be our best teacher.
