“Vivinne is an excellent Yoga instructor! I studied with [her] for 1 year and was a beginner. She taught a class that included students from beginning to experienced and Vivinne was expert at teaching all levels of practice. I would recommend Vivinne to anyone interested in learning and understanding the practice and principles of Yoga.”

Video Transcript

My name is Kala Viv Williams, I have been certified as a yoga teacher since 1994 so long time. I’m Kripalu certified. Over the years I’ve attended many workshops and additional trainings, studied massage therapy, 1,000 hours of training. As well as Ashtanga and vinyasa yoga. And also finally combining that with intensive study in mindfulness meditation.
I’ve attended up to six week long silent meditation retreats. Primarily in the Theravadin tradition or Vipassana meditation. That is also the basis for mindfulness meditation and there’s been a lot of recent study and research on mindfulness and it’s benefits. So I would love to hear from you regarding teaching private yoga classes, as well as corporate and business classes. Do get in touch, spend some time looking at my website re: background, training, services and costs. Do get in touch if you have any questions and…. If you are a non-profit I would love to work with under-served groups and so give me a call, I’d love to spread the benefits and the stress reducing benefits of yoga and mindfulness the populations that don’t usually get it. Thanks so much, look forward to hearing from you. Bye now.

  • Want a completely personalized lesson, customized to your busy schedule, energy level, mental and emotional needs.

  • Are a beginner and want to learn the yoga postures properly.
  • Find it difficult to concentrate and progress in group yoga classes. No distracting crowded rooms and no comparing yourself with other yoga students.
  • Lower risk of injury because you are personally guided through the poses. Because of the lack of competition you are unlikely to try a pose before your body is ready.
