Tiffany Hamm Gouveia
My yoga journey began over 20 years ago taking classes at Collinsville Yoga and as life happened, found myself off and on the mat. Ya know, those years when life happens? During the COVID lockdowns, there was only so much Tiger King one could watch and found there were numerous free online yoga classes. Those classes reignited the connection between my body, breath & mind. Relearning or better said, remembering that the connection to quiet the ‘hamster on the wheel’ in your head and clears out the cobwebs.
My son was entering his senior year when I had to have a talk with myself... what did I want to do once he went to college and my house was empty. My answer was instant... become a yoga teacher. Graduated with a 200-hour Yoga Alliance Certification with Kristin Cork of Be.Yoga out of Avon, CT in March 2022. Fell in love with teaching Beginners, Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative Yoga. I look forward to meeting you on the mat, however you show up, to support your journey into yoga.
If I'm not on a yoga mat, enjoy hiking new trails, trying new recipes in the kitchen (mostly the ones that tricks my family into thinking there's gluten or dairy in them), starting veggie plants from seed and walking while listening to Audible. My other favorite place is on the sidelines of a baseball game watching my son play baseball. To round out my life are two bonus kids, 'the' hubby, and telling the kids they can not get a flying squirrel.
Currently am enrolled in Restorative Yoga Training with YogaRenew, to continue learning and expanding my yoga training.
