Yoga is about far more than handstands, cool arm balances and deep back bends. Yoga is not like a fitness class; it does not solely focus on mobility, strength and flexibility. Yoga is a powerful mindfulness tool, which can help to create inner peace + be a guide to a healthier and more balanced way of life.
It is a sacred and transformative practice that connects mind + body + spirit. It is called a “practice” as it is a place to learn and explore more aspects of ourselves. The learning, the curiosity, the commitment to our growth, never ends.
The benefits of yoga are evolutionary; they include:
- Reduced stress + anxiety
- Increased self-awareness
- Increased focus + mental clarity
- Increased mobility + flexibility + strength
- Enhanced immune system
Style of Yoga Classes:
My yoga classes vary in pace and complexity. Currently, they are more of a gentle flow. Intentional and fluid sequencing links breath to movement, creating heat within the body and focus in the mind. The classes end with cooling restorative poses that help guide students into a more relaxed state. Each class includes core strengthening, twists, inversions, balancing postures and back bends. Every sequence is carefully crafted to stretch and strengthen the physical and subtle body, while also focusing on safe posture alignment and the importance of breath. I am a huge proponent for props and modifications, which makes my classes accessible to all levels and new students.
Through my yoga classes, I seek to help yoga students feel more empowered in their life, connected to their truth and balanced in their body and mind.

Group Yoga Sessions
Did you know that sitting for long periods of time and unmanaged stress are leading causes of decreased performance and poor health? Sitting is incredibly hard on the body and taxing on the mind. Stress gets stored in the tissues of the body creating tightness, discomfort and illness if not addressed. Work life balance can be difficult to maintain. Through intentional movement + attention to breath, Yoga helps to promote circulation in the body, space in the mind + focus and energy longer term. Offering a weekly or monthly yoga class in your office,
is a great way to cultivate connection and community in the workplace, while supporting the health and wellbeing
of your teams.
