I always loved to teach and once I found yoga, all I wanted to do was share the genius of the practice.

My classes vary depending on who is in the room and the conditions of that particular day. Energetically they range from gentle and soothing to strong and sweaty. Since we have to start where we are, all of my classes begin with arriving, checking in, and centering. From there we glide into warm-up with movement and next into a deep flowing sequence with an anatomical focus (ie. hips/spine/soft sense organs/feet). There is a consistent invitation to be present with breath and moment-by-moment corporeal awareness. The practices then are meditations.
It will be beyond exciting to travel across the world, and remember the vastness and brilliance of our globe, especially after the year we have been sheltering. To get away from home, see new places, be with like-minded and also completely novel people, and anchor all of the new experiences with meditation and yoga practice is THE BEST!
Savasana! After a complete practice, to offer rest and give ideas about how to sink deeply and let go is a joy and important work.
