Ruth Romo

"I started practicing yoga 20 plus years ago in California at Gold's Gym. It was a different class & though I enjoyed it over the years, it wasn't till I moved to Albuquerque, NM & had quality teachers that paid attention to alignment & did these "weird" chants! There was something different with these teachers, they loved teaching yoga!!  When I moved back to El Paso I began practicing hot yoga & noticed students coming in to take class but the teachers never focused on these newbies! It took all of me to not want to add my two cents but I stayed on my mat! I told myself if I ever became a teacher I'd focus on safety & alignment.

 I'm happy to say that I was the first YTT class that Casa de Yoga offered. I have 100 hr. from YogaFit, 200 hr. RYT from Casa de Yoga. I am Level 1 & Level 2 Relax & Renewed Restorative trained by Judith Hanson Lasater.

October 2015 I completed my 300 hr. Yoga Therapy training from Yoga Yoga in Austin. This will give me 500 hr. RYT in Yoga specializing in Therapeutics. I’ve attended many workshops & am certified to teach Primal Hang, TrimBarre, & Aqua Yoga.

Those clients who attend my classes will have fun, know they will be safe & successful in their practice, & feel loved. They will gain the ability to breathe correctly, learn about themselves & how amazing their bodies are, be mindful & start having a relationship with their bodies.

I enjoy taking stained glass classes (when I can!), being with friends & family, learning, traveling & exploring."

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace & not evil, to give you a future and a hope"  Jeremiah 29:11
