Azzie Crean - Yoga Instructor at Personal Pilates Plus

Hello, I’m Azzie, and I’ve been actively engaged in yoga for over a decade. In 2022, I completed my 200-hour certification at The River Yoga in Denver, Colorado. My specialization lies in teaching both yin yoga and Vinyasa yoga. My ultimate goal is to foster a sense of community by facilitating a shared journey of breath and movement, enabling individuals to connect with their inner selves and the world around them on a deeper level. Through my classes, my aim is to assist students in releasing tension, while also nurturing inner awareness and cultivating strength, flexibility, and resilience. Regardless of whether you have extensive experience or are just starting out, I warmly invite you to join me on the mat as we explore the transformative potential of yoga together.

Being entrusted with the role of guiding others on their transformative journey is a privilege I hold in the highest regard.
What training have you pursued?

I received my 200-hour yoga instructor certification at The River Yoga in Denver. Following the certification, I went through a six-month internship where I shadowed a deep stretch and meditation class weekly, gaining valuable experience and learning hands-on assists.  

What is the most rewarding aspect of being a yoga instructor?

Having the ability to create a community through the shared experience of breath, movement, and fitness, connecting people to the deeper aspects of themselves and the world around them, is a profound source of fulfillment. Holding space for others is not only deeply rewarding but also gives me a deep sense of purpose.
