My Approach to Teaching

Uniting body, mind, and heart through practices of movement, self-exploration, and stillness

Yoga is a deeply personal and revealing practice that awakens us to the beauty and complexities of who we are.  My style of teaching holds space for each individual to experience philosophy, movement practices, stillness, and inward exploration as a means to expand their own relationship to Self and others. As a voracious learner, I continue to study a variety of yoga and related traditions and integrate them into my Sadhana (personal practice) and classes. I aim to share the most potent teachings that have influenced my own life in a down-to-earth and relatable way so that others too may explore the intricacy and wonder of being human. It's my desire to share yoga and meditation not only as things we do on a mat or cushion, but also as vehicles to live life awake and with intention.

My current offerings are in the styles of the following:

  • Hatha - an active yet slower paced practice of longer held postures and a focus on alignment. Will often include meditation and/or pranayama.

  • Hatha/Vinyasa flow - a blend of Hatha and a more dynamic Vinyasa-based sequencing.

  • Yin - a passive and introspective practice designed to stimulate connective tissues, joints, and energy pathways (meridians) in the body, with an emphasis on mindfulness. Postures are held for anywhere between 2-5, or even up to 10 minutes.

  • Yoga Nidra - a multi-layered guided meditation that allows for deep conscious rest and inner exploration. Practices range from 25-60 minutes.

  • Chair Yoga - an accessible seated Hatha practice with an emphasis on mindfulness.
