I believe that each person has innate beauty and wisdom; at our core, each of us possess the strength, resilience, and creativity to meet and greet every situation that arises in our life. My desire as a yoga teacher is to provide a safe, fun, and nurturing environment, where people can explore ways to enhance their life. This can be in a physical yoga practice (asana) meditation, chanting, or studying the philosophy of yoga.
A current focus in my teaching is to choose a difficult project- like hand balances- to work on diligently and patiently over a long period of time, and witness the results without attachment.
Strong effort must be balanced with gentleness. There must be time for restoration and renewal. I also teach Restorative Flow: to gradually renew strength and resilience, and Yin Yoga: a quiet meditative practice.
