I was smitten with yoga after taking my first couple of classes in 2000 and have been promoting its benefits ever since. During my Yoga Teacher Training in 2005 and ever after, I have learned from many yoga teachers and traditions, methods and techniques and have come to embrace a gentle, slow-flowing style. My intention is to encourage, facilitate and support nurturing experiences. People may come to yoga with a desire to move more freely and with less pain, or to foster better posture and stronger balance, or to cultivate healthy approaches to anxiety, fears and stressors. Many simply wish to weave a peaceful practice into their life. All of my classes enhance well-being, endorse the very essence of what the word yoga means (union, coming together) and are infused with the positive energies of gratitude and love. Each class promotes mindfulness, breath awareness, opportunities to increase strength, flexibility, range-of- motion, balance, and of course, relaxation.
