The beauty of yoga is that it integrates all of you with your Self: it challenges your body, it clears your mind, it moves your stuck emotional energy and inspires you to live a more balanced and awakened life.
Through ancient and modern teachings of yoga, I aim to inspire you to learn more about yourself – not just physically through yoga practice, but also mentally and spiritually.
As I guide you through an asana class, I apply my knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics plus more than 25 years of study and teaching to share what I have learned about the rich and varied tradition that is yoga. In class, you can expect to be challenged up to your safe physical edge while you explore the yoga of body, mind and heart.
