After taking a year off from teaching, I have delved deeper into an intuitive way of practicing yoga. I combine hatha and yin postures through flows and meditation, linking everything together with life philosophy. The aim is always to reawaken the "still, alert presence of consciousness itself" (Eckhart Tolle). In bringing the self into the infinite moment, we can begin to heal.
I have not only studied yoga, but also philosophy, art, cultural dance (bellydance, bhangra, flamenco, bollywood, persian), anti-gravity fitness, and zumba (for adults and kids). I have taught and performed in various styles, blending dance and yoga classes together. Due to my ongoing interest in philosophy and spirituality, I am always reading and educating myself.
I am an expansive human being and aim to continue to work on myself. In doing so, I hope to inspire others to delve into themselves.
About My Service
Currently, I am teaching all levels hatha yoga, where I provide a safe and expansive space for students to learn and explore yoga at their own pace. Modifications and suggestions are prevalent, as well as hands on assists.
Additionally, I offer a half hour yin practice to boxers, where we focus on lengthening muscles to assist in post-workout healing and recuperation. In this class, we use props (blocks and slings) and I offer personal adjustments.
