As a trained psychologist, social worker, and lawyer, Nyasha Griffith has been an advocate and agent of change for over 20 years. Her passion for improving access to services for marginalized communities led her to work in community development, training, and capacity building. During a time of personal stress, Nyasha took her first Ashtanga vinyasa yoga class, and as her personal practice developed, she discovered a sense of calm and a deeper connection to her faith through her time on her yoga mat. She also loved the sense of strength that the physical practice developed-a first for this gym-phobic woman! In addition to her Ashtanga practice, Nyasha has also studied Hatha and Iyengar yoga. Yoga has been an avenue of personal change for Nyasha, ushering in a season of physical, emotional, and spiritual strength. She is passionate about sharing the practice of yoga as a healing and empowering modality accessible to all, regardless of background or physical limitations. Nyasha’s teaching style is rooted in her own experience, with a focus on alignment, empowerment, strength, playfulness, and compassion. She is a certified Yoga Alliance 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher, (500hr in progress), and incorporates elements of Ashtanga, flow, Hatha, and Iyengar into her classes, modified to suit all levels.
