Yoga can be a most exquisite practice to experience this gift of being in a human body. It can bring greater ease into the physical body and mind. It can help you age gracefully. It can help you connect to that place where the finite meets the infinite. I teach mindful use of breath, movement, and posture to guide people into ever-deepening layers of awareness to meet their needs.

Class Descriptions

 

About Alignment Yoga:

The practices of yoga and meditation can alleviate the stresses of our Western lifestyle. By slowing down our yoga practice, exploring therapeutic cues, mindfulness, and breath awareness, we discover the more subtle nuances of alignment. In so doing, we cultivate our inner wellspring of healing and vital energy.

 

Alignment Yoga – Gentle:

Whether you are new or experienced, this class is geared towards those who desire a slower practice with a more therapeutic, safe, and restorative focus.  We incorporate action and resistance to build strength in muscles that support our joints – especially beneficial for those with hypermobility (aka Joint Laxity Syndrome).

 

Yoga for Healthy Aging:

Inspired by my training with Baxter Bell, MD and Melina Meza in June 2017, I created this class and an 8-week series to explore how we can maintain or further enhance our strength, flexibility, balance, agility, equanimity as well as brain and cardio health so that we may enjoy the activities we love for as long as possible.

 

 

Trauma Informed Yoga:

This is a gentle therapeutic yoga class open to all people – especially those who have experienced trauma at some point in their lives.

 

 

Core Awareness:

Combine an understanding of anatomy, alignment, and the breath to develop core awareness and strength. Bringing this awareness into the yoga postures allows one to experience the wisdom of the body on many levels. For active beginners through continuing-level students.

 

 

Alignment Yoga Level I:

Classes are focused for those who have some yoga experience, although newcomers are still welcome to attend (let me know)

 

Alignment Level II:

This class is focused for experienced yoga students with moderately strong core muscles as well as beginners who have completed a Yoga Basics course or those who have significant experience in other movement modalities.

 

 

Roll and Release:

This is a foam rolling class focused on releasing tension held in the fascia, the connective tissue of the body.  It is a lovely complement to your yoga practice, marathon training, long days at your desk, or other movement modalities. Self-myofascial release techniques on a soft foam roller and pinky balls improve flexibility, function, performance, and reduce injuries. Massage away restrictions to normal soft-tissue (fascia) extensibility while you rejuvenate your lymph system.
