Align Within - Yogic experience with Lia Rafaela




"Align Within" is a yoga class centered on alignment on a holistic level by linking breath, movement, and sound, creating wholesome connection and coherence between the mind, body, and spirit. This practice begins with setting intention and breathwork to calm and center the mind, followed by a slow yoga flow to move the physical body, and closing it with a relaxing Savasana, while Lia shares poetic words of wisdom and vocal sounds to allow students to go within and connect with their spirit and integrate the whole experience.
About Lia
Lia Rafaela is a multi-talented artist and yoga teacher with a passion for the healing arts. Born in Germany and raised in Brazil, Lia moved to St. Pete, Florida at the age of 16, where she eventually found herself connected to a powerful holistic healing community in her 20's. A visual artist, singer, harpist, and yoga teacher, Lia is here to inspire others with her gifts and ignite the flame of the Divine Creative Spirit within us.
Lia first found the healing properties of yoga in 2012 at 'A Yoga Village' yoga studio in Clearwater where she practiced Hatha Yoga for two years. In February 2014, Lia embarked on an intensive yoga training for 45 days, taught by The Lotus Pond Center for Yoga and Health based in Tampa, at the Peace River in Wauchula, Florida, and became a Certified Yoga Teacher with a 200 hour training based on Kripalu and Iyengar yoga. Her teaching style is based on Iyengar (alignment), Kripalu, Vinyasa, and she also offers guided meditations, breathwork, and sound healing with vocal toning and the heavenly sounds of the Harp.
Kripalu yoga has an emphasis on meditation, physical healing, and spiritual transformation, while Iyengar is a form of yoga that focuses on proper alignment and precise technique through slower movements and is great for those looking to heal injuries. Emotional and mental well-being are also important in Lia’s practice and with this yoga combination style she's found a method that’s made her feel more aware and in tune with her inner self and intuition, which has propelled her into a self-healing journey with a focus on self-care and self-love that encourage personal growth, mental and emotional balance, relief from physical ailments, and a sense of inner peace.
Lia’s goal as a Yoga Teacher is to create a safe space for deep healing, spiritual expansion, vibrational enrichment, and mental clarity, with the belief that self-healing is possible when we create union and coherence between body, mind, and spirit.
