Felipa Gaudet RYT 200
Felipa began practicing yoga six years ago after the birth of her youngest daughter, seeking a way to strengthen and reconnect with her physical self while carving a place from her busy day to cultivate inner peace. Her desire to land the elusive ‘handstand in the middle of the room’ fueled her dedicated, ongoing practice for many years while teaching her to detach from desired results. Felipa completed a 200-hour YTT at The Yoga House in Kingston, NY, where she enjoyed connecting with kindred spirits, with whom she could happily ‘geek-out’ on anatomy and ancient yogic texts. Always looking to deepen her understanding through learning opportunities, Felipa completed a Yin Yoga training with Bobbie Marchand, a 12 hour exploration of the Yoga Sutras with Edwin Bryant, as well as other workshops related to various aspects of teaching yoga. Falling in love with aerial yoga from her first class, Felipa immediately knew that she wanted to share this form of yoga with others. She completed both a 50 hour Aerial Yoga Teacher Training and a 16 hour Advanced Aerial Yoga Teacher Training at OM Factory in NYC. She is excited to guide others on their aerial yoga journey!
Felipa typically teaches in an invigorating and fluid style, while encouraging folks to honor their bodies and discover the possibilities within each pose in the way that feels right for them. A Montessori teacher in her other life, Felipa believes yoga can be accessible to all and she offers multiple levels of challenge and modifications within various options for poses. In her classes, she enjoys exploring the relationships between poses while steadily building to a fun challenge. Felipa loves designing classes to meet peoples’ needs and she finds great joy in watching people transform and grow within their yoga practice.
Felipa is excited to become a part of the Rainbow Body Yoga community! You can find her hanging out on her aerial yoga rig in her front yard in Kingston or on Instagram or Facebook at @felipagaudetyoga.
