Paige took her first yoga class from Alvina Haverkamp in 1998. She studied closely with Alvina for many years and went on the pursue a teaching certification in 2004. She is a graduate of the Temple of Kriya Yoga Home Study program, the Swan River Advanced Teacher Training program, the Ananda Seva Mission Yoga Therapy program, and Judith Lasater's Experiential Anatomy Program. She is now an ERYT-500, or, an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher at the 500 hour level. This means she has over 500 hours of yoga training and has taught over 2000 classes.
Paige crafts classes that are challenging, yet accessible, designed to unite body, breath, mind, and intention, and leave you feeling calm, yet energized. Inspiration from ancient texts or modern yogis is often woven into the framework of the class to illustrate how relevant our practice is to life off the mat.
In addition to being a yoga educator, leading weekly ongoing classes, annual workshops and trainings, Paige is a mother to 3 daughters, ages 15, 11 and 11. She knows what it means to be a caretaker and the importance of filling the well with self care practices. Her personal yoga practice, which includes stretching, breathing practices, and Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep, is a priority for her. Without it, she finds herself more easily depleted and frustrated. With it, she finds herself more patient, loving, and energetic.
Paige's favorite description of yoga comes from the Bhagavad-Gita, "Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the Self."
