As the owner of Bella Prana Yoga Studio in Tampa Roni Sloman is a certified Yoga Instructor and Meditation Coach. She grew up here in South Tampa and after graduating college at Florida State University Roni spent two years in full-time ministry. She then decided to pursue her love of the outdoors and worked for Recreational Equipment Incorporated (REI) in North Carolina running their special events and community outreach. This gave her the opportunity to surround herself with the training and experience that led her to complete Outward Bound’s instructor training. During this time she grew to love climbing, mountaineering, and challenging her mind and body in new ways. Not long after, Roni continued her education and became an Emergency Medical Technician. In light of her previous mission work and world travel she decided to put her new skills to use working with AIDS and malaria patients for two months at a rural clinic in Africa. It was shortly after she returned from traveling that an unexpected period of depression led her to the practice of meditation.
In the search for more information on this ancient practice she learned of the intimate relationship between meditation and yoga. Experiencing stillness and awareness helped to lift her up and she quickly wanted to share this transformational practice. Roni was drawn to the yoga mat, and felt called to invite others to join her. The process of self-discovery and conscious living is a life long journey and it is with humility that Roni chose to teach the practice of Yoga and Meditation. Bella Prana yoga studio in Tampa welcomes anyone who is seeking a new way of interacting with the world around them. Roni’s deepest hope is that you will find greater awareness in your mind, increasing strength in your body, and rest within these walls.
Roni teaches Power, Flow Level 1 & 2, Private Instruction, Meditation Coaching, and Workshops at Bella Prana yoga studio in Tampa. She is also proud to be an Ambassador for Lululemon Athletica.
