The Founder


Celia Hirsch's Story

I became a yoga practitioner 25 years ago, soon after I started teaching and 10 years ago I founded SPACE Yoga.
Fitness has always been a passion and a big part of my life as far back as high school. I discovered yoga as an adult when I was unable to find a suitable fitness routine and I was searching for something more than just exercise. As a young wife and mother I found the vast benefits of yoga did, indeed guide me through the challenges of that time, providing internal and external balance. Since then and now as a mature adult it has become an integral part of my evolution, helping me through many difficult junctures. My struggles have mostly been with psychological and emotional trauma from a very difficult childhood that left many aspects of my life confused and unfulfilled.
Yoga coupled with Buddhist teachings has literally become the foundation of my life. I’m so humbled that I get to share with others what gives my life so much meaning. To witness my students grow and their lives become more harmonious has confirmed that this is my life’s purpose.
