Yoga is changing my life. And I believe it can change yours. That’s why I became a yoga teacher, because I think yoga is an amazing path to transformation— of the body and thought patterns, both of those leading to spiritual well-being…
I’ve found that many people think you have to be skinny, in-shape, and ultra-flexible to do yoga. That’s simply not true. Yoga can help you feel better and become more fit, whatever body you come to yoga with. I teach yoga for people without “perfect” bodies. My goal is to meet your body where it is and guide you through breathing and movements that work for you.
Class schedule and description:
In the warmth and the healing glow of candlelight and Himalayan salt lamps, enjoy this quiet, meditative practice with an emphasis on the thighs, hips and spine. Through mindful muscle relaxation, access is gained through the connective tissue encouraging the free flow of of chi (prana) in the body. Postures are held for longer periods and awareness is brought to sensations in the body. Yin is a wonderful complement to a Vinyasa practice, running, cycling or other Yang activities.

I want other people to experience this change in their lives. So many people feel a deep sense of shame about their bodies, because they don’t look like what someone else says is beautiful. But we are all beautiful and our bodies are so remarkable. I want to help people learn to love and appreciate the beauty each of us brings to the world.”
