“The spacing between her voice and silence provides me with the opportunity to experience her suggestions in my own body. My awareness of breath, strength, tension, and relaxation is enhanced by her sequence, progression, and guidance.” (Client Review, February 2018)
I am an RYT500 / E-RYT200 (with 50-hour Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TSY) Certificate), offering private yoga lessons and small group lessons.
Alignment-focused Hatha yoga, exploration of arm balances, and Restorative yoga are my specialties!
I strive to offer acceptance and connection to my clients, restoration to the body, and a greater feeling of each person’s interdependence with the Earth, humanity, and their own internal divinity.
What Can Yoga Do for Me?
Yoga (asana – or the physical poses) is an amazing practice that can strengthen the body, relax the mind, and restore the spirit. It can help prepare a person’s body for labor, help them recover from birth. It can relieve day-to-day stress, and give you the tools to handle bigger stressors as they arise. It can help you gain flexibility, strength, and is great cross-training for a variety of sports. Remember, you don’t do yoga because you ARE flexible, you do yoga to BECOME more flexible… in body, and mind!
Meditation, another limb of the yoga practice, can be used to find a pause in the craziness of daily life. It can reconnect us to our inner strength and wisdom, and help quiet the mind when it starts to talk too loudly. Meditation can be done as part of an asana yoga practice, or separately to find a cessation of the fluctuation of the mind.
What I Offer:
Hatha/Align or Restorative classes, or a combination! – with or without meditation; I enjoy sharing a mindfully paced practice with anyone eager to learn. We can structure lessons as you would find a class in a studio or have a more work-shopping approach, offer an introduction to the basic poses and their proper alignment, or work towards a pose of your choice. Let me know your goals!
My hourly rate is $70, if you are providing the space; rates go up if I am providing space. Contact me for group and corporate rates.
I do offer a discounted private package of 5 classes for $300 (plus spaces fees, if applicable). I also offer a one time introduction class where we review the most common poses and their proper alignment for $40.
Please contact me with any questions, or for more information!
