With a life-long love of dance and movement and a passion for anatomy, when I discovered yoga 24 years ago, it was a natural fit. I have experienced the practice of yoga as lifesaving, having sustained me through giving birth naturally to two children and through a severe illness. My practice and teaching style is rooted in Iyengar yoga. I have studied many styles over the years, I am certified to teach Kundalini, Hatha, and Yin yoga. My passion is to bring the art of yoga to every BODY, people in aging bodies (over 40!) recovering from injuries, living with chronic illness. People who have the misconception it is not for them.
The classes aim to calm the body’s stress response (strengthening the parasympathetic nervous system); quiet the mind; maintain and increase joint mobility; strengthen bones and tendons; stretch muscles and ligaments. Always with a strong emphasis on alignment, breath, and joy.
I am constantly studying. I recently earned my 3rd-year certificate in yoga therapy at Loyola Marymount in Los Angeles. I am taking a course on the neuroscience of Yoga in October 2021.
My silver lining of the confinement is being able to study my first love, Iyengar Yoga, with some great seasoned teachers from all over the world online!
