About Abby Schwab
Abby Schwab, E-RYT 500-Hour Certified Kripalu Yoga teacher
Abby's qualifications include advanced training in Asanas (postures), Pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation, as well as Theoretical and Applied Yogic Philosophy, and General and Applied Anatomy and Physiology. She was introduced to yoga as a teenager, but drifted from practicing after going away to college. A deeper journey toward yoga and meditation restarted as her children became school age. At that time she was competing in triathlons. To bring some balance and stress relief, she began incorporating yoga. It didn’t take long for her interest in yoga to transform into a full-fledged joyful passion.
In 2010 Abby founded the Yoga for Life 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training and In-depth Study for those who want to expand their passion for yoga. This training allows for both personal transformation, as well as specific techniques to bring yoga to others.
She enjoys practicing and teaching a wide array of yoga formats, from gentle to vigorous, always reminding students that they are experiencing their own practice, to listen to the wisdom of their bodies and be guided by their breath. In addition to teaching yoga, Abby also offers Zumba™ & Shake Your Soul™ dance classes, and is a Certified Pilates Instructor and Personal Trainer.
Abby is continuously inspired by her students, encouraging them to live a life of vitality, with humor, healing and wellness. Currently she resides near Boston with her husband, their two teenagers and the silliest cockapoo ever.
