I am a Registered Yoga Teacher with over 2 years of experience teaching both studio and private classes. I began my yoga journey 10 years ago. After experiencing its benefits for both my mind and body, I knew I one day wanted to share this beautiful practice with others. I eventually traveled to India and Bali to complete two yoga teacher certifications. My mission is to offer the practice and philosophy of yoga as a tool to face uncertainty and stress amidst our modern lifestyles – all while building strength and flexibility in the body.
My current teaching expertise includes Yin Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, and Hatha Flow. I cater my classes to meet every individual’s needs. I typically blend different aspects of each style to help create a state of openness and flow in both body and mind.
My approach to teaching is first and foremost about creating a safe space for you to explore your practice. My classes are open to all levels of experience, as I believe the focus of a yoga practice is ultimately internal; asanas are a tool to delve deeper into our inner landscape, and find calm amidst the things that challenge our inner peace.
My vinyasa classes are a blend of yin and yang, working on softening the mind while working the muscles of the body through dynamic flows. The classes are sequenced to cultivate an overall sense of flow, ease, and balance within the body and mind. These classes are great for those with a little bit of experience with yoga, who are looking to challenge themselves a little more, and shed off any layers of stress accumulated throughout the day.
My hatha classes are great for beginners and absolutely anyone looking for alignment-based classes that will help to calm and focus their energy. These classes are a little slower-paced, with a lot of focus on the breath and awareness around each movement. It’s also a great way to build endurance and strength. This approach is sure to lead you to a state of deep inner peace that will last you well after the class ends.
Yin yoga holds a very special place in my heart. Yin classes are perfect for connecting with yourself, and realigning the energy that might be stuck in different areas of your body. I would describe yin yoga as a really cozy, “me-time” kind of class, as poses are held passively for a few minutes at a time. By practicing yin yoga with me, we will work to release tension in the physical, mental, and emotional bodies.
