I received my teacher training and certification in 1994. I am a registered teacher with the Yoga Alliance. My teaching
draws heavily on the viniyoga tradition, which stresses breath, flow, and comfort in the postures in order to quiet the mind, reduce stress, and steady the inner being, while simultaneously enhancing strength and flexibility. I prefer small classes (12 or less), in which I can focus on working with each student to address his or her own individual physical, emotional, and spiritual issues through yoga. My goal is to help my students tune into the wisdom of their own bodies and minds and learn how to use breathing, asanas, and meditation to increase their well being.
Learn to release long-held tensions throughout your body with breathing techniques and yoga poses that do not require
strength or flexibility. You will gain strength, flexibility, balance and more through yoga -- you don't have to bring those skills with you! We offer Svaroopa(R) Yoga in a small, intimate studio. Classes are limited to 6 students which allows time for lots of individual attention. This compassionate style of Yoga is accessible to almost all students, any body type, any age, both male and female. We use lots of blankets and blocks to give you all the support needed. Embodyment(R) Yoga Therapy, Yoga Therapy, Marma Facials and Private lessons are also available. I also offer Lunch-Time yoga at your workplace (in the Silver Spring MD area) or your home for a minimum of 4 people at a group rate. Please email for details. I am Registered with Yoga Alliance and have over 700 hours of teacher training in Svaroopa Yoga.

Sky House Yoga is a donation based wellness collective consisting of educators, holistic health practitioners, and
community members who all share a commitment to the health of our planet and the creation of a sustainable global economy. Through yoga, astrology, herbal medicine, wellness services and holistic training courses, it is our goal to light the many paths an individual can walk for healing and well-being.
At the core of our teaching philosophy we believe that the wisdom of the eastern and yogic traditions combined with the medicine of the plants and the teachings of the planets create a progressive platform for major transformation. As a healing collective we've built a safe, home-like space for people to do this often challenging but deeply rewarding work. At Sky House Yoga we believe that when we practice and study together consistently, with two feet on the ground, that the entire planet changes. Our planet starts to feel more like home.
We offer weekly yoga classes, workshops, and a seven-month Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher Training Program focusing on the craft of teaching yoga beginning each September.
At the heart of the Sky House vision lies the ancient spiritual marriage between yoga, astrology, and plant medicine.
In addition to these core offerings it's our mission to provide the best in local holistic practitioner services and cutting edge wellness workshops.
Perhaps most important to the Sky House mission is our financial philosophy. Sky House is a donation based yoga studio and wellness collective. This means that we offer all of our services at donation-based price ranges, ensuring that nobody is ever turned down or priced out for a lack of funding. Since opening our doors to the community Sky House has been thriving under this trust and faith based business model.
Yoga classes at Sky House take place in our cozy downtown Silver Spring studio. Here we offer all of the props you will need for a comfortable and safe practice. Small class sizes allow for teachers to connect to students and help them achieve their personal goals. There are many reasons why people practice yoga and we taken great care to create a diverse schedule of classes.
Sky House offers a variety of yoga classes suitable for all levels. Our core teaching style is a blend of alignment based Hatha and movement based vinyasa flow. Together these styles link movement and breath and create a strengthening yet soothing yoga practice.
