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.

Gentle Restorative Yoga

This practice begins with gentle floor movements that focus on slowing down, creating space, and bringing awareness to the body's connective tissues. Restorative poses will be offered with enough time to more fully support the body, to facilitate a felt sense of ease and comfort, and to reduce fatigue. The sessions will conclude with pranayama (breath-work) and meditation.

This practice is accessible for all levels, including those who have never tried yoga.
