She received her BA in Miami at Florida International University where she played D1 beach volleyball. Yoga has opened the door for her to understand what it means to honor and connect the body, mind and spirit.
She has completed 200+ hours of Anusara Yoga teacher training and is currently advancing in that discipline. Additionally, she is advancing her expertise in the use of essential oils and Ayurvedic practices. Podschweit believes in teaching her students the principals of body alignment and, equally important, are the practices of meditation including self-inquiry. Her goal for teaching is to have her students feeling empowered, connected and overall AMAZING when they walk out of class.
