My personal practice and its evolution
Annie Carpenter, Maty Ezraty, Jason Crandell
My classes create a sense of inquiry through movement. With the understanding that we are all unique in our movement, I encourage students to explore poses, ranges of motion and breath individually while sharing the communal space and energy of a yoga class.
Retreats offer an opportunity to pause. They allow us to see new sites, connect with a new community and offer a space to reflect.
I love anywhere where I can experience untouched nature, whether that be the mountains, jungle or the beach.
