When I found yoga, I instantly fell in love with it. It healed my mind, body and soul. I founded Moving Meditation to share my love of yoga with you. I’ve created a series of videos that you can do at home, whether you are a beginner discovering yoga for the first time or you are an advanced yogi looking to deepen your practice. I’ve also made a series of meditation videos to offer the chance to re-connect with yourself and manifest your hopes and dreams.

I am obsessed with growing my mindset & overcoming challenges in life. I like choosing to include only things that add value in my life, and those I have a fiery passion for. This has led me to be a successful, compulsive creator. I love helping others find their path of empowerment. And I put my heart and soul into anything I take on. I feel most at peace when I'm underwater, meditating or doing yoga, especially in nature. My experience with Awaken the Peace has been nothing short of what I ask for in my life. To connect with someone as beautiful & vibrant as Katie, working to spread the love & light in the world. Please feel free to check out my site and social media links at

Yancy Scot Schwartz

Yancy Scot Schwartz took his first class in the Dominican Republic while on a skate tour. He initially loved yoga solely because it improved his skating. In 2008, at the encouragement of the owner, Yancy attended the Yoga to the People 200 hour Teacher Certification. He was then sent out to open and build Yoga to the People in San Francisco in 2009. In 2011 he moved back to New York where he met Sri Dharma Mittra. He completed the 500 hour Life of a Yogi Teacher training in 2013. Later in the year he attended the 50 hour Rocket Certification at Asta Yoga in San Francisco.

Yancy's personal practice includes meditation and pranayama 5 days a week. He also regularly attends classes at the studios he teaches at, or from renown teachers in the L.A. area.

Yancy hopes that through the yoga practices and techniques you will not be bound by the body or the mind.
