Instructor Biography

Hannah Faulkner, Yoga and Art Instructor

Hannah’s curiosity and adventurous spirit urged her to travel the world, after completing a degree in Liberal Studies with an Art concentration. She became a flight attendant and traveled for 4 years to see places with interesting and different cultures, natural beauty, and art history.

Hannah first tried yoga at the end of her college studies, when her fingertips were 6-8 inches from touching the ground (in forward fold). She really dove in and found transformation through Yoga One San Diego. In 2012, Hannah met Laura McCorey, a teacher and blog writer from Yoga One, and began learning yoga in beautiful Balboa Park. Laura opened her perspective to the healing aspect that yoga can bring and she began to find inner balance and peace as she practiced 3-4 times a week at the studio for the following years to the present. With an athletic background of a runner and hiker, Hannah gradually began to increase in flexibility and whole body strength to start learning more intermediate and advanced poses.

During that time, she completed her California Teaching Credential in Art and began teaching drawing, painting, sculpture, and mixed media to K-8th grade students.

In fall of 2014, after completing the Rainbow Kids Yoga Training, she stumbled upon the opportunity to also teach yoga to her students at the charter school. Hannah emphasizes safety in getting into and out of poses, proper alignment, and the benefits of breathing with your movements (Vinyasa Flow). She incorporates partner poses like 'Bicycle" and "House" to teach trusting and interconnected relationships.

Hannah enjoys inspiring her students through a full body experience of a creative theme and intention towards wellbeing, movement with breath, muscle strength and flexibility, balance, connection with others, listening to verbal instructions and stories, playing world music, aromatherapy, and imaginary journeys. After completing her 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training this March 2015, she is excited to offer private yoga lessons to all ages as well. Hannah aspires to share her light and enthusiasm to anyone who is open.
