“Ingrid is not just a dedicated & passionate teacher, she is also a wonderful example of someone who lives their yoga. Her knowledge, expertise & constant desire to learn is what makes her an excellent instructor. I would highly recommend you study with her.”
–Rachel Krentzman PT, ERYT500, Co-owner of Physi-Yoga, Author of Yoga for a Happy Back: A Teacher’s Guide to Spinal Health Through Yoga Therapy and Scoliosis, Yoga Therapy and the Art of Letting Go.
Ingrid Aria, E-RYT began practicing yoga in 1998. She got lucky & found Sivananda’s Companion Guide to Yoga on the shelf at Barnes & Noble, Brooklyn. This was clearly the perfect exercise: unashamed movement, mindful breathing, and the simplicity of “me, the mat & my bare feet.”
In 2009, Ingrid took her first 200 hour yoga teacher training in vinyasa yoga. In addition to working in yoga studios and gyms in New York City, she brought yoga to communities she was passionate to serve: women in ultra religious neighborhoods and teenage girls at-risk.
In 2013, Ingrid began studying with Rachel Krentzman PT, E-RYT2000 in her 100 hour Happy Back & 200 hour mentorship programs. She focused her studies on therapeutic yoga for back care and stress reduction / trauma relief. Ingrid is a committed student of yoga, and is fortunate to have learned with master teachers around the world, including: Aadil Palkhivala, Amy Matthews, Bo Forbes and Leslie Kaminoff.
She is currently pursuing TRE® certification with Anya Bloom.
Ingrid Aria has been privileged to teach a wide range of students from ALL backgrounds. Your yoga experience with her is one where both safety and effectiveness are prioritized. The yoga is thoughtfully adapted to meet your individual needs, abilities and desires.
