I first came to yoga by chance in 2003. The integration of a mind/body practice, through asana, and meditation, was a revelation to me. I began in the Kundalini style, and have also practiced Hatha and Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative Yoga. I'm happy to be able to share my love of yoga, and am grateful to my many teachers along the way, Mary Paterson, Angela Jervis-Read, Alan Gensho Florence, Wroblewski, and Carly Stong.
In my teaching, I want to help people learn to love themselves. We all have things we don't like about ourselves. Some of these things are that tight hip, or how balancing is difficult. When we're off of our mats, there are other things we don't like about ourselves. Through our yoga practice, we can get to know and accept ourselves, and even learn to like what we find there through compassion and love. Join me for a class and see what it's all about.
I'm also a Reiki Level II practitioner. Reiki is magical, opening windows to the self and offering opportunities for soothing the soul. It can also be a useful and supportive practice for people undergoing intense and invasive interventions such as chemotherapy, bringing a sense of calm in the midst of a storm.
I love teaching kids yoga classes. Being with kids is amazing—they open doors with their natural inquisitiveness, creating opportunities to talk about philosophy, mythology, anatomy, and so much more in age-appropriate ways, all while having fun together. Kids classes run in pre-registered series only.
