“Function before form.
Form before depth.
Breath before everything
and Everything to your own degree.”
With 2 decades experience, I can really relate to and support the needs and abilities of a broad age range of students and I deeply enjoy helping people to meet themselves on the mat, at whatever stage they find themselves in life’s journey.
My classes are simple, focused on listening to your body & honoring yourself, combined with an awareness of breath and a strong physical element-- all things to your own degree! My goal is to get you out of your head and into a place of feeling. My classes are about working hard -sensitively, safely- about feeling good and finding the stuff that matters, and about taking care. The focus includes strength, balance, flexibility but most of all the practice is about cultivating a calm and peaceful mind. The focus is health.
I hope my students connect to something deep but I also want them to have the time of their lives on that mat. I want people to dissolve boundaries, exceed expectations and become happier, healthier human beings, lead by the way they feel instead of the way they think.
I am forever grateful for the opportunity to serve the community by sharing in the healing practice of yoga and the sheer magic of the hot yoga series. As a teacher, I know I will forever remain a student. I plan to teach and practice yoga for the rest of my life and I thank all of the students, past, present and future, for inspiring me daily.
