With a life-long love of dance and movement and a passion for anatomy, when I discovered yoga 29 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 and I am certified to teach Hatha, Kundalini, and Yin yoga. I have a certificate in Yoga Therapy from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.
My passion is to bring the art and science of yoga to every BODY, people in aging bodies, recovering from injuries, living with chronic illness… People who have the misconception it is not for them. Regardless of where you are in life, a regular Yoga practice can help.
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.
My silver lining of the confinement was being able to study my first love, Iyengar Yoga, with some great teachers from all over the world online. I am currently being mentored by Senior Iyengar teacher Anna Delury towards earning an Iyengar teacher certification
