Ursula Howard

Ursula says her superpower is teaching yoga. Born and raised in the heart of Pittsburgh, Pa. She has been doing yoga since she was 18 years old and what she has learned with her practice is that anyone can do yoga. She has completed her 200 hours of Raja Yoga training with Yoga Roots On Location in November 2018.

"No matter what your body type you can do yoga." Her goal is to teach you to make space for yourself in your practice. The main focus on having a great time in class, and if you do not get the pose right away or have to modify your poses you are still doing yoga.

She is bringing the eye pillows, essential oils, and yoga techniques lets have fun.

"Movement has been medicine to me even before I knew what that meant. Movement is self expression and soul expression thru your bodymind. I danced my whole life and always found joy in the movement. I found yoga when my soul needed it the most. When it was craving connection and expression and I was no longer dancing and felt quite lost within. I suffer from anxiety and in this fast paced “go go” society we live in, it is so easy to disconnect and to not take time to just listen to yourself, really listen. I teach Vinyasa flow with conscious breath connecting movement to movement. Grounding to the here and now. I completed my 200 hr yoga teacher training with Alchemy Yoga Teacher Training in February 2018. I hope to create a space for my students where they feel safe to connect in the present moment…. A space to feel strength, love, and unity with their self and the universe. And to just let out a big “exhale” on the mat."

"I am a white woman who grew up in the South Hills of PA. I currently reside with my boyfriend Evan and puppy Luna. I have been developing my personal yoga practice since 2011, when a dear friend, first introduced me to Hot Yoga. Since then I have found a love for restorative and gentle yoga styles that include the support of blocks, blankets, bolsters, and pillows. In 2018 I went through 200 hours of yoga teacher training centered in anti-racist community building. Through that training, race as a critical layer to healing was brought to the surface for me and has completely redirected my healing path. It is my intention to share this healing work in the community, and take the perfection off the mat to make the power that is yoga accessible to everyone."
