Yoga Classes & Workshops

Practices that can enhance one's daily health, wellness, and sense of self.

In the light-hearted, practical manner in which I approach life, I teach therapeutic essentials of alignment-based yoga. In every class and every pose, I teach alignment of the bones, muscles, connective tissue, & breath.

life-affirming, practical, and applicable right here, right now

 I teach yoga to support letting go and accepting yourself wherever you are in life. I also believe that "it's not about the pose," and prefer to help you adapt the pose to fit your body/mind rather than trying to force you to fit some ideal of the pose.

I teach studio and specialty classes, workshops, teacher trainings, retreats, and private yoga therapy sessions.
