Barbara's first exposure to yoga was in college, when she took it merely to fulfill a phys. ed requirement. She had no idea this one credit class would become a major theme in her life. Barbara enjoys sharing her knowledge and enthusiasm for the Hatha Yoga practice with her students, emphasizing proper alignment, the physiological effects of the practice, how to work with the breath. The ancient phrase, "the pose will appear when the student is ready", describes her teaching philosophy. With consistent practice. proper engagement and intention students find themselves progressing to where they need to be. Vinyasa Flow and Slow Flow (moving with careful intention, and engaging the breath and bandhas will create internal heat and energy flow) are Barbara's specialties. She has been practicing for more than 30 years and teaching since 2010. Teaching mixed levels classes has become a specialty, all students are encouraged to enjoy their practice and embrace feeling like a five year old again, have fun and be surprised at what one can accomplish.
