I am dedicated to sharing the Yoga tradition and lifestyle with eager students of different abilities and backgrounds. My classes are warm and inviting. I have been practicing yoga for over 40 years. My motto is “Yoga is for every body”. My classes are for any age, any ability. Problems getting to class and want to get in some yoga? Come late or leave early, you are always welcome.
Currently I am teaching Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa yoga and Silver Sneakers Yoga at Safari Island community center, Waconia, MN. I also teach Gentle Yoga at Watertown community education, in Watertown, MN. I have been teaching at both facilities since 2007. I can facilitate yoga classes in a group setting, explaining the benefits of each asana and provide modifications based on physical limitations.
I provide a welcoming and comfortable environment, effectively communicating to students, with clear explanation of benefits of Asana with focus on proper alignment.
Verbal and assisted adjustments are available to modify and enhance poses based on individual needs. I provide guidance on pranayama, meditation and relaxation techniques.
