Yoga improves your sense of well-being by increasing flexibility, improving circulation, building strength and stamina, better balance and deeper concentration. The beauty of yoga is that it integrates all of you with the real you: 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 traditions of yoga, I aim to inspire you to learn more about yourself – not just physically through yoga practice, but also mentally and spiritually.

My teaching style is directive and detailed. I apply my knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics plus more than 25 years of teaching to guide you safely through well-rounded asana classes. Equally important to improving flexibility, strength and stamina through poses is my focus on yoga philosophy. You can expect to be challenged up to your safe physical edge while you explore the yoga of body, mind and heart.

My Inspired Yoga Institute classes are offered as Drop-Ins. To make a reservation, please sign in to your preferred class in advance on MindBody Online.
