I became a certified Yoga instructor in 2005, after a dance injury encouraged me to change path. Training in ballet from age 5 enabled me to discover the body as an extremely powerful yet delicate tool. Through my own rehabilitaion and many years of studying I found ways to emphasize simplicity of movement through breathing patterns making practice more effortless and productive.
Focusing on breath and core connection I aid and assist students with injuries, specifically spinal injuries, weight problems and general well being. Using knowledge of anatomy and the
mechanics of the body I create and deliver yoga sequences with specific goals in mind.
In class we will use yoga as a way to clear the mind, tone the body and strengthen character while remaining soft and supple.
When mind, body and thought reunite, yoga becomes a moving meditation. Your body becomes fluid in stillness and your muscles and mind open in their most flexible way. You will experience congruence within contradiction. It is up to you how much you will glean from the secrets of yoga.
The cardinal elements weave through our Yoga practice and lives. We use Earth as our support, to lay down roots and grow. Air is our fuel; it inspires lightness in the Asana and ignites the power of Prana. Fire consumes and creates heat, it burns away harmful physical and emotional accumulations. Water then cools and refreshes while flushing away the old. Space is at our center and is the mother of all the other elements. When you apply these five elements to your yoga and life you become more powerful.
