Yoga is something we experience deep within our being. It does not require strength or flexibility; it only requires a willingness to learn how to feel authentically and respond honestly to whatever it is you notice. Moving from point to point, breath by breath, and completely absorbed in the present moment, yoga teaches balance: structure and fluidity, strength and flexibility, support and surrender, stillness and motion, limits and liberty, feat and trust, holding on and letting go, stability and freedom.
In asana, we learn more than just the physical form of the pose; we also learn to stay steady, calm and alert whether we are in a simple pose or in a challenging pose. When we are able to maintain a sense of presence and equilibrium in any asana, we can translate this off the mat to maintaining a healthy mental and emotional balance in life.
In spirit of greater success, happiness and fulfillment in life, I am committed to the practice of yoga and believe that health and well being are wonderful results of practicing yoga - but the actual purpose of yoga is to awaken our highest potential as human beings.
My classes are based on the creative play of Vinyasa, the verve of Ashtanga, and the life-affirming essence of Anusara. Grounded in a supportive and inviting space for everybody to experience the benefits of yoga, my classes weave a balance of intensity and grace into rhythmic, mindful movements that build physical strength and flexibility, reduce stress and quiet the mind. Together with a focus on breathing, physical alignment, and dynamic movement, I create an inspiring moving meditation that is simultaneously fun, challenging (yet accessible) and calming leaving you energized and centered long after you've left your yoga mat.
"I believe in the power to live simple + love big. To move + be moved. Join me."
