Paige Phelps Yoga Teacher, Island Yoga SpaceYou can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf – Jon Kabit Zinn

After 20 years in education as a guidance counselor, prevention coach, and social and emotional learning specialist, Paige moved from Arizona to Florida to be near her extended family and pursue her passion for teaching yoga and educational consulting. Paige began her yoga journey about 16 years ago when she went through a painful divorce and was searching for a community of like-minded/hearted individuals and a practice to help lift her spirits during a time of self-discovery and transformation. Yoga became her safe place to land and in 2018, Paige decided to take a deep dive into the history, philosophy, and teachings of yoga by obtaining her 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Certification. She continued with her training in 2022 by receiving her 200-hour Wellness, Social and Emotional Learning and Trauma-Informed Yoga Certification.

Paige’s teaching style is playful, authentic and intentional as she creates thematic sequences to support her students in applying benefits of their practice off the mat, which she believes is the true essence of yoga. Through self-awareness we receive from our internal guidance system, we are able to take the necessary action steps so we can show up as the best version of ourselves as we hold space for others to show up as their highest and best selves.

Paige’s intention is to empower her students to give themselves permission for their yoga practice to meet them wherever they are in the moment with grace, compassion, and self-acceptance. And to use their practice as a self-care system that enables them to reflect and self-regulate through body awareness, movement, breath, and technique.

Come learn to use your yoga practice as a moving meditation, allowing your breath to be your anchor through challenges — both on and off the mat — and to serve as a conduit to peace, clarity and a greater sense of compassion for self and others. Paige will hold a sacred space as she travels alongside you through a journey that cultivates self love and inner peace.
