Meet the Instructor, Bianca Bloomfield:
Bianca discovered yoga in 2013 as a cross-training exercise while prepping to run a half-marathon in New York City.
When she moved to Los Angeles in 2014, she dropped the running and began practicing yoga on an almost daily basis-- it was a way for her work through all the weird emotions she had around moving to a new city.
As Bianca dug deep during her 200 hour teacher training at One Down Dog, she began wondering why she hadn't been introduced to yoga & meditation as a child. So, she took a kids yoga training with mini yogis and right away started teaching kids as young as two. Later Bianca began to incorporate family classes that focus on allowing grown-ups to reconnect to their yoga practices while introducing yoga to children in a playful way.
In 2018 Bianca created Young Warrior Yoga, a yoga & wellness brand that teaches children and families how to use the tools of breath, mindfulness and movement to feel empowered and present in every day life. She now teaches in studios, schools, and homes across Los Angeles.
