Canella Mullins began practicing yoga in 1997 and at that time, struggled with negative body image and an assortment of disordered eating habits. After several years of consistent practice and study, she recognized the impact yoga had in navigating her own emotional pain and loss. In addition to offering the tools to change self-destructive habits, yoga provided a pathway to grieve both the end of her first marriage and the death of her father. Knowing that she wanted to share the healing power of yoga with others and to make yoga accessible to ANY body no matter the size, shape or age, she completed 200hr teacher training and has been registered as an instructor through the Yoga Alliance since 2009.
For many years, she taught yoga alongside her successful career in management at a community hospital and has gained hundreds of hours of teaching experience in both fitness center and yoga studio settings. Her first-hand experience in using yoga to combat stress in a busy work environment offered opportunities to share yoga in the hospital setting with Nurses and Administrators alike. She has had the honor to share yoga at Camp Rainbow, a unique camp for children grieving the loss of a parent or sibling and has hosted numerous yoga workshops. As an Accessible Yoga Ambassador, she has trained in a variety of modalities, including Aqua Kriya Yoga, Chair Yoga and Aerial Yoga.
