While practicing Alexander Technique, Esther Golda Lozano first came to recognize movement as a form of awareness in 2004. She soon expanded her practice and curiosities toward yoga and meditation. Registered with Yoga Alliance since 2009, Esther received her RYT from the Charlottesville Yoga School. Esther incorporates mindfulness-based elements throughout every class, which is the foundation of her practice and lifestyle. Her teaching style explores the body and breath with curiosity and emphasizes compassion through movement, allowing for a natural unfolding of emotions, thoughts and sensations.
Esther received her BA in Art History from the University of Virginia and her nursing degree from Piedmont Virginia Community College. She currently works at Martha Jefferson Hospital. As a part of University of Virginia’s Compassionate Care Initiative, she believes in consciously spreading an emphasis toward intentional living and awareness and does so through teaching weekly drop-in yoga sessions and co-facilitating student resiliency retreats.
