Teaching Style 

Yoga has been a part of my life for over a decade. My practice has helped me grow stronger, more flexible and fearless both on and off the mat. Yoga inspires me to live each moment more mindfully.

 

I completed my TT from OneFlow in Northern California I will always be a student of this practice and I am deeply grateful for the loving wisdom my teachers have shared with me.

 

In class I like to combine creative sequencing queued with breath mixed with a dose of inspiration to help you deepen your practice.

I seek to help others thrive & see it as my life‘s work to empower my students to nurture the body, mind and soul. My hope is that you step off the mat feeling refreshed nourished and balanced.

One week you are springing out of bed to practice, the next dragging yourself to the mat. It’s like being in an ocean where them current is so deceptive, you think you’re in control in one place, then snap your downstream,,,,
that happens with practice as far as I can see that’s just a part of it.
 
Failure to maintain a yogic state is considered one of the nine obstacles in yoga, practice reveals all those obstacles in yoga & practice reveals all those obstacles inside us.
It shows us how careless we are time and again
how we make progress then it somehow gets away from us, we don’t notice until suddenly we find ourselves where, downstream,,,,
When you find yourself staring at this position what do you do?
 
You immediately start back in without regret & that’s what it really means to walk the discipline to seek spiritual identity you grossly fail & yet persist, you respond positively,
It’s through this positive response of moving forward that wisdom emerges we choose to walk a worthy path through life even though the victory we gain, the success we have or the love we express to find it may look entirely different than what we imagined.

 

I speak of staying on the highroad of optimism and creativity as you transition from ideals that you held on as a youth to the realities that you must face as you age. You resist ending up like that person, songwriter Sixto Rodriguez sang about” It’s just your yellow appetite that has you choking on the truth, you gave in,

you gave out, outlived your dreams of youth”.

 

But Instead of giving in, you work constantly to heal & grow beginning from where you find yourself each day, you work diligently to renew your connection to sacred source and then the bright future you dream of builds itself…

 

Live your dharma love your dream…
