Yoga for me is the entry point that allows me to be fully embodied – mind, body, spirit – and connected to source. I believe with every part of my being that it is our purpose to love and support one another to our highest good. In my classes I offer what feels strong and empowering to me: abs and core work with a healthy balance of strengthening and stretching. I like to offer intuitive movement, modifications and alignment cues to create deeper connections between intellect and feeling. I am always in my head, analyzing, thinking...yoga is the one place – teaching and practicing – that I can let the busy brain take a back seat and be fully present in my body. It took me a long time to get over a lot of beliefs that held me back: “I’m not flexible enough,” “I’m not ready”, “It’s not perfect,” “It doesn’t look right,” whatever. It’s only when we are free from distractions and mind clutter, that we can do the real work. My hope is to create a space for play, imagination, strength and joy in class to encourage our most radiant selves to show up.
