My Hatha Yoga classes work with the body and the breath to peel away layers of built-up tensions and allow the body/mind a respite from the overstimulation and stressors of daily life. In our yoga practice, we enter a space where we can shed all of the many roles we assume to just be with ourselves in the present moment. We start to recognize the nature of the whirlwind mind, gain greater clarity and enjoy our lives more by being aware of this constant ebb and flow of thoughts and emotions. We learn to sit in the present moment and experience the essence of pure being just as we are, and that is okay. This is the Union of Yoga: body, breath, mind and spirit.
I teach a structured and precise flow where practitioners have the guidance they need for a safe practice, while at the same time allowing for play and individual experimentation. A mixture of traditional Yoga Asanas in proper alignment with attention to a strong, vibrant core allows for flowing movements and embodied practices that work to massage and nourish the body/mind and tap into the energetic subtleties of breath in form.
Yoga for every Size, for every Shape, for every Season of Life!
Have you ever thought you are too stiff, too old, too fat, too thin, too weak, too “other” to do yoga? This class is designed to change that! We will make use of walls, chairs, blocks, straps and other props to make adaptations of yoga positions suitable for EVERY body. Let’s improve our health and boost immunity with a mix of stimulating, strengthening and relaxing movements accessible for all.
In my classes I enjoy teaching in a way that provides structure, in particular for those new to Hatha Yoga, while at the same time allowing for individual experimentation, so that practitioners with more experience on the mat can tap into the energetic subtleties of breath in form.

In this way we work to boost our energy instead of deplete it, respectful of whatever it is we may bring to the mat on that particular day.
