Aimee Bouget In 2011, I completed my 200 hour training in Vinyasa Yoga through Frog Lotus Yoga. Since then, I’ve spent the majority of the last seven years traveling, sharing yoga from retreats in Guatemala to hostels in Mexico to villas in Croatia. In between trips, I’ve also led Power Yoga classes at universities and trauma informed yoga classes for homeless teenagers in Colorado. Teaching around the world and to so many different demographics has shown me that yoga is available to anyone and everyone. And that’s what I love so much about it. No matter where you are, yoga will meet you exactly where you’re at. As someone with a background in theatre, dance, and gymnastics, I was captured by the idea that there’s no “performance” element in yoga. There’s no “perfect” pose. There’s just learning to listen to your body, as it is. Learning to accept your body, as it is. Learning to love your body, as it is. And learning to understand the ways in which you can compassionately encourage your body to grow. I love Vinyasa Yoga because it helps me discover ease and joy while flowing through challenging postures. I love Yin Yoga because it teaches me to relax around my tension, to release, to keep breathing and allowing my body to open even when I really, really want to quit. I love Acro Yoga because it shows me a playful, trusting, adventurous side of myself that I never want to lose. During all of my classes, regardless of the style, I hope to create a safe space. A space wherein people feel supported in unconditionally accepting themselves as they are, and then curiously and compassionately exploring their edges and finding growth.
