Tiffany Maqubela is a RYT-200 vinyasa yoga instructor registered with Yoga Alliance and received her certification at the Buddha B Yoga Center in Washington, DC. Ms. Maqubela discovered yoga through a free class in Southeast taught by Sariane Leigh. Inspired by Leigh’s soulful flow, as well as the immediate connection she felt to the practice on a spiritual and physical level, Ms. Maqubela sought to learn more by dabbling in different styles of yoga, such as vinyasa, Hatha, Ashtanga, Jivamukti and Kundalini.
As a yoga teacher, she hopes to contribute to the diversity of instructors and encourage all people, regardless of size, age, ability, or color, to feel a part of the world of yoga. In her classes, she intends to help students embrace themselves within their individual practice and to find a moment of peace on the mat that can be carried into their daily lives.
Ms. Maqubela completed training in Restorative yoga and Prenatal yoga, and will complete her 85-hour certification as a registered prenatal yoga teacher in the winter of 2015. She is an alumna of Howard University, obtaining a B.A. in History and a M.Ed. in Educational Administration and Policy. Currently residing in Silver Spring, MD, Ms. Maqubela is a stay-at-home mother who enjoys watching movies with her husband while eating oven-made chocolate chip cookies with soy milk.
