Hannah Strater started practicing yoga in 1995, initially weaving in and out of the practice during her student years and the beginnings of a corporate career. Yoga became more central in her life when she transitioned into motherhood, and she found physical respite and mental support in a regular practice.
In the spring of 2009 she took the leap into yoga teacher training at Sonic Yoga in NY’s Hell’s Kitchen and has been teaching ever since. She is passionate about learning and teaching body awareness, the value of the breath, and the fun and satisfaction of simple, as well as challenging, yoga poses. Most of all she wants to guide her students to a centered place so they can feel at peace with themselves and the world around them.
In addition to the basic 200-hour teacher training, Hannah has taken courses in pre-natal/post-partum yoga, restorative yoga, yin yoga, as well as yoga for chronic illness, addiction recovery and at-risk youth.
In April 2015 she completed a 6-day hands-on human dissection workshop with Gil Hedley which she found interesting and profoundly moving.
Hannah is grateful for all the teachers and students she encounters when she teaches and takes yoga.
