Agnes Fischer

I've always been a seeker. Growing up, I was always the type of kid who would wander off on my own to explore and discover new things in nature; always seeking meaning, symbols and secrets in the wold around me. I didn't know exactly what I wanted to be "when I grew up", but I knew I wanted to live as my authentic self and submerge myself in creativity and expression. That is why I am both a Professional Photographer and Yoga instructor. After years of practicing Yoga, I decided to pursue a certification so that I would be able to properly heal myself from a bad back injury that occurred in 2013. I need to learn anatomy and how our muscles and skeletal system functioned in harmony with one another. I have been teaching now for 2 years. My practice has evolved and unfolded tremendously over the past two years...and continues to do so. Yoga is a passion of mine that I wake up and do daily. I focus on a breath centered practice that instills the physical and spiritual aspects of Yoga. The Yin and the Yang.
