Yoga is one of my life’s true passions; I love what it contributes to my over-all health and spiritual growth. I love serving my community and bringing in a light-hearted healing energy. I have been practicing yoga since 1998 and received my first certification as an instructor in 2001. I am currently registered as an Anusara Inspired TM instructor and am close to completing my second certification as a fully Anusara Certified teacher. Anusara Yoga has been the strongest influence in my teaching since I started studying it in early 2004. It is a heart-felt style that emphasizes making an intimate connection with the intrinsic goodness within us, flowing from us and pulsing into the world around us.
I strive to bring passion, playfulness and a deep reverence into each class I teach. My classes are life-affirming and full of opportunities to create integration and a sense of freedom and ease. I bring a lot of energy, light and fun into each class as we explore alignment and heart themes that deepen the learning. My classes are designed to inspire and create optimal health on all levels of being. I study and teach from a Tantric-based yoga philosophy that provides us a profoundly rich language and structure for cultivating a sensitivity to our divine nature.
The philosophical background of the yoga I teach comes from the rich wisdom of Tantra Yoga. It is a poetic and beautiful practice that recognizes the power of intrinsic goodness of life. the very power of nature within us. It encourages us to cultivating an intimate awareness of a unifying consciousness that pulses through the universe and ourselves. Aligning our relationship with the body, mind, and spirit, so as to live with a compassionate and open heart, helps us to also align with our community and world at large. My goal as a teacher is to help the student make more connections and deepen their awareness of this bigger pulse. The deeper the relationship, the more we cultivate a sense of freedom and ease through the process; the more we open to the fullness of our senses, intuition and ability to maintain an open heart.
I teach a wide variety of yoga poses sequenced in a way to explore the power and delight of precise alignment while flowing with grace. We explore diverse ways to break through the resistance that keeps us from seeing our own awesomeness and radiance. By cultivating playfulness, along with the discipline of refinement, we progress through the poses and progress through the higher refinement of our personal transformation. My teaching reflects this open and soft approach to a non-competitive and deeply spiritual practice, on the mat and off. In each class we look to experience the radiance of Spirit and find unique and creative ways to go deep and have fun at the same time. By exploring heart-oriented themes we recognize that life’s challenges are also life’s blessings; allowing ourselves to feel deeply and live passionately we learn and grow. We move compassionately through the poses using the body as a tool to connect with the deeper layers of our being and shine from the inside out.
I look forward to seeing you in one of my classes soon.
