Yoga

The Journey of Self-Realization

Yoga: Awareness, Freedom & Union

"Be in sync with the drums of your heart." 

This quote embodies my approach to yoga; exploring and listening to the subtle conversations of the body, synchronizing action with intention, and finding playful expression of our miraculous existence. Yoga is a means to greater understanding of our minds, the physical workings of our bodies, and our ability to consciously move energy for higher purposes. Practice makes progress.

Yoga is not one-size-fits all; you are a unique individual with unique strengths, limitations, and physical structure. Whether you are a professional dancer, an office worker, or an older adult--some of my favorite classes have been at assisted living centers--yoga can offer an improved quality of life.

I work with individuals and small groups to educate students on how to practice safely and make discoveries about their own bodies, minds, and lifestyle patterns that shape their human experience. We use physical yoga to relieve tension, enforce proper biomechanics, reduce stress, and build strength and coordination. We can use the body to leverage the breath, the breath to leverage the mind, and the mind to access higher levels of discernment and contentment.

Styles I Teach:

  • Vinayasa Yoga

  • Therapeutic Yoga

  • Yoga Synergy (Qi-gong inspired)

  • Trauma-informed Restorative Yoga

  • Acro Yoga

  • Yin Yoga

Practice With Me:

I have had the privilege of leading yoga teacher trainings internationally for over a decade, working with people from all different backgrounds to develop a greater appreciation for the uniqueness of each yogi. Having a deep fascination with anatomy, I like to work logically with the body to couple strength with sensitivity--and stability with mobility--in functional ways that have direct applications off the yoga mat. 

If you are interested in developing a personal practice, I am available to create a holistic practice that is tailored towards your specific needs and goals.  Book a session now to embark on a journey of self-discovery and inner peace!

Here's a video of my teacher Simon Borg-Olivier, from whom I draw much inspiration in my approach to practicing yoga.

 

Coming Soon!

I am also excited to announce that next year I will be publishing two books on Practical Anatomy & Physiology for Yoga and Everyday Life.  The aim of the books is to make yoga anatomy and physiology simple, accessible, and easily integrated into your personal practice and everyday life.  Stay tuned for more information!
