Yoga

Welcome!

I believe that everybody can practice yoga and enjoy the many benefits it offers. A daily yoga routine can be transforming to your heart, mind and body; when practiced with awareness and intention. I invite you to join me in a yoga practice that most suits your needs, whether it be meditation and breathwork, gentle stretching, or invigorating sun salutations and inversions. My teaching style is heart centered, incorporating a focus on the breath as it connects to mindful movement and optimal alignment principles. The goal of our yoga practice is to embody a graceful flow in all of our actions, cultivating clarity, balance and mindfulness, whether we are on the mat or engaging in our everyday activities.
