After years of near competitive body building and teaching high intensity aerobic classes, it became clear that I’d need a ‘softer’ approach to activity as I aged. At 40, my first yoga class nearly toasted me. It was the most challenging physical feat I’d attempted! From then until now, transformations occurred at every level of my being, and today, I live yoga by being less judgmental, and more tolerant, forgiving, and compassionate. Not to mention a body that’s a bit more flexible!
Each and every one of you at your deepest essence are filled with intrinsic goodness and innate beauty. I believe our beauty and goodness emanate from us to all others. I simply reflect your divine goodness back to you.
In my yoga classes or in private yoga sessions, space is opened for you to bring self-compassion to your mat. You will be skillfully guided to build a dynamic and passionate platform that offers optimal alignment and balanced energy. This creates a safe and trusting foundation so you believe in your abilities and open to your fullest potential. Through a grounded and committed foundation, you’ll find your heart opening to be fully present and alive and to live from that place every day. Your body will become more balanced, your mind contemplative, and you’ll find strength to explore a deeper understanding of who you are at your essence. The answers to all your deepest longings and desires are there. When we become quiet and still, and listen, we hear them.
A year-long Anusara® 200-hour yoga teacher training inspired by Tantric philosophy allowed me to be branded as an Anusara-Inspired® teacher for over 10 years. Now, as a 200-hour Hatha yoga teacher registered with Yoga Alliance and a yoga therapist registered with the International Association of Yoga Therapists, I continue to foster the understanding that each of us desires connection – first to our own heart, then to others.
