Hannah Gruber and Rian Bodner, Promo photography; 7/14/2013Hannah came to yoga from a stressful, jam-packed life with debilitating allergies and asthma. Tired of medication, inhalers, doctors, and caffeine, she was willing to try anything and through yoga learned that she was in charge of her own health and life. Yoga practice continuously brings her confidence and peace and she believes that everybody deserves to live a life they love. She started teaching yoga to help people connect to their own power: to grow, thrive, and evolve. Her distinct and playful yoga classes challenge you to be your best self: through curiosity, play, and a willingness to evolve. Hannah is a yoga teacher, trained in Anusara yoga and Yogahour®. She is a Reiki practitioner, as well as an Ayurvedic Holistic Health Counselor. She currently teaches yoga classes at Yoga Shunya, YogaSole and QuickFitness. 

Hannah began creating in the kitchen as soon as she was tall enough to see over the counter. Her first E-Z Bake oven became a way for her to (quite literally) enjoy the sweet things in life. After turning down an offer to bake cupcakes professionally in NYC, she reconsidered her relationship to food.

Food has always been a way for folks to share and connect; however, modern life distances us from the source of our own nourishment.  For many people meals are often eaten quickly or on-the-go, and far from the source.  Hannah strives to reconnect people with the many pleasures of cooking, eating and sharing food while also bringing people closer to the source of it.  Her 18 years of experience in the kitchen and restaurants, and passion for Ayurveda, organic gardening, seasonal eating and locally grown food inspire her creations.

Inspired by the delight she sees in people who eat good food, Hannah seeks to nurture that experience through her SupperClub and cooking workshops. Ultimately, she strives to empower people to heal themselves through intuitive cooking and eating locally grown food while creating human connection.
