Serena Swartz

Hello fellow yogis! My name is Serena Swartz. I have been a Reno local for the last eight years, and I absolutely love the community here. Especially our yoga community! Yoga came into my life about 4 years ago, but my life really changed when Now Yoga opened its doors two years ago in my neighborhood. I immediately joined and started practicing almost every day. It is really my home away from home! Yoga has changed my life for the better. It's a constant practice, but I'm so much more at peace with my mind, body, and spirit. Life can sometimes be so hectic, but yoga really teaches you to stop, drop, and breathe. I also love that yoga has introduced me to so many talented, supportive, and beautiful people!

After taking so many amazing classes from each and every instructor that has passed through the doors of Now Yoga, I just kept thinking while in class, 'Wow! I could do this! I could be up there too.' So I decided to enroll in my first 200 hour teacher training with Sacred Roots at The Studio here in Reno. My experience really brought me deeper into my own practice while also giving me all the tools I need for teaching my own class. My instructors were incredible and so supportive of each of us. I am a brand new teacher so I'm still finding my voice, rhythm, and style. I can tell you that I'm trained in Vinyasa, love a vigorous & high energy flow, and love helping people go upside down! I'm really into singing bowls and chanting, so I definitely will be incorporating those into my classes as well. I'm so excited to share yoga with my friends, family, and moving foward, the Now Yoga community. Yoga is and always will be a practice so even though I'm a teacher now, I will always be learning from other classes, my students, and future trainings!

If I'm not doing yoga, you can catch me hiking, laying on the beach at Lake Tahoe, any pool, dancin' my booty off at music festivals, and pairing delicious wine with tasty food! I'm so excited to meet you, practice yoga, and better ourselves together.
