WHAT TO EXPECT
As a teacher, I guide students to use the practice of yoga asana, pranayama, meditation, and present body awareness to move through breath centered and vinyasa flow practices. The intention is around strengthening our relationship with ourselves
by building a greater sense of awareness of our experience, and allowing our bodies to maintain or gently be guided back to the natural rhythms that support a healthy body.
My classes seek to find a balance between safe alignment, a physically challenging yet grounding practice, and allowing the body to intuitively and creatively express itself through movement.
I first discovered yoga while working and living in Seville, Spain. A friend of mine recommended yoga and said, “If you practice yoga consistently and over time, it will change your life.” Throughout the years I have found this to be true, not as one life changing moment, but rather a slow progression and practice over time.
As we use the practice of yoga to expand our awareness, we find ourselves making decisions that align more with the unfolding of our highest selves. Through the practice, we explore sensation, become curious about our experience and practice acceptance. Because everything that we experience happens in our body, it is powerful to incorporate a mindful and physical practice such as yoga in order to unwind old patterns and bring about positive change in our lives.
I believe that the practice of yoga is a lifelong endeavor that can serve people in a myriad of ways whether seeking to gain strength, flexibility, self-discovery, deepen spirituality, or physical or emotional healing.
I completed my 200 and 500 hundred hour teacher training at Moksha Yoga Center in 2010 and 2016 and have over 1,500 of training. I am trauma informed. I have practiced Vipassana meditation extensively, and have studied with world renowned teachers. Some of my main influences are: Drs. Ron and Mary Hulnick, Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Saul David Raye, Rich Logan, Daren Friesen, Ashley Turner and Govin Das.
