Yoga

eyes closed blissYoga is simply the cultivation of breath, mindfulness and awareness. Here we are invited stay conscious while moving, sometimes holding an odd shape for awhile, sometimes flowing from shape to shape. Again and again we find an edge and breathe into it. We discover the balance between strength and ease and perhaps this quality extends into our daily life. Our time on the mat and off the mat begins to merge. A deep breath in traffic. A lovely stretch at our desk. Yoga is life. Life is yoga.

My classes are inspired by the graceful movement and devotional presence of vinyasa flow, deepened by the intelligent sequencing, powerful core work and healing of Forrest yoga principles.

As I’ve deepened my teaching I find more pleasure in slowing the pace, at least to balance the more lively vinyasa flow classes. Most say the classes are grounded, soulful and healing.  I strive to inclusion for all beings, levels of experience and all body types.

RYT500Training: RYT500: Stellarflow 200 hour (with four senior Forrest teachers). Then a 300 hour program was completed with Janet Stone with hundreds of extra ongoing study hours in (devotional) Bhakti Vinyasa. Teacher training hours at Yoga Tree have included Judith Hanson Lasater for Restorative Yoga and a 100 hr Therapeutic* Training with Harvey Deutch focused on anatomy, physiology and alignment.

What others say: “Your class was challenging yet restorative at the same time” … “I absolutely LOVED your class … it was really peaceful, still, safe, fun, and the sequencing was awesome…” …”The hands-on assists are worth the price of admission!” “This class was like a 90 minute yoga hug!” “I love the… class because I can close my eyes and go inside. I know nothing crazy is going to be thrown at me!”

Private Yoga Sessions are also available (bookable on Genbook): Let me structure a unique yoga sequence that you can do at home, or we can simply work on your most challenging poses. If you choose Yoga/Hypnotherapy, we can do a mix of hatha and restorative yoga plus guided hypnotherapy to relax & heal yourself deeply. Your session is recorded and you receive a written sequence of poses.

*Yoga Alliance certification does not certify or make any claims about the therapeutic or healing potentials in yoga.  They simply certify that yoga teachers have completed hours in approved coursework to teach yoga.
