Yoga Sutra 1:1 ATHA YOGANUSASANAM
Now is the Time for Yoga
My classes are a blend of Vinyasa flow, Subtle Body awareness, and mindful healing practices. I believe in balancing the strength and meditative qualities of vinyasa flow (linking breath with poses) with the healing and therapeutic Subtle Body practices such as Chakra tuning, pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation. My students come to me knowing that they will be challenged but they will also leave their mat feeling balanced and hopefully a little more peaceful within their own body, mind, and spirit. My goal as a teacher is to encourage my students to honor their own unique path but to approach their practice with an open mind and an open heart, without expectations and without judgements. We have fun, we play, we learn, and we always grow.
I completed my first teacher training program in 2007 in the style of Vinyasa Flow under Devin Morgan. In 2008 I began an extensive 500-hour Professional Program with YogaWorks mentoring under Dani Ibarra. I studied with Annie Carpenter in Vinyasa flow as well as Pranayama in the 300-hour Program at YogaWorks. In honor of my roots in Vinyasa, I teach a flow-style of class that is breath-centered and athletic. Through my studies with Jeanne Heileman in Tantra Flow Subtle Body I safely infuse my teachings with a deeper awareness of Self through Pranayama (breathing techniques), Chakra work, guided meditations, Ayurvedic principles and so much more!
