Discovering the Transformative Benefits of Yoga After 40

Today I have the pleasure of speaking to Yoga Influencer and instructor, Paola Pietri, who only started yoga in 2015 when she was 41. It only took 2 years for her to fall in love with its transformative powers and to become certified as a yoga instructor. Paola is particularly drawn to the Vinyasa Flow approach because of its fast pace. Paola is a firm believer that yoga is not only mind affirming, but equally a great workout and leverages her background in ballet and strength training in her instruction.

Paola originally from Venezuela and now based in Florida is a Yoga Alliance Certified Vinyasa teacher and teaches both private and group classes. She is also a mother of 4 children and self taught herself at 4.30am before her children woke up and needed to be brought to school. Ever since becoming certified she has committed herself to teaching yoga, as she says, with every beat of her heart & soul, because whe wants all people to feel and experience the benefits of yoga that she has experienced ever since she started this transformational practice. I believe, It’s never too late to follow your passion.

Paola has a ton of positive energy and offers some very practical tips for getting started with yoga and any wellness and fitness routine. She is also a firm believer that all of us should not allows ourselves to be limited by anything in our lives and that we should always seek to become the best version of ourselves. She also believes it’s never too late to discover and follow your passions and living the life you have always dreamed of.
