the body and calms the mind. The studio is HOT (over 100 degrees) to facilitate deeper stretching, prevent injury, relieve stress and tension and to detoxify the body. Bikram yoga was designed to systematically stimulate and restore health to every muscle, joint and organ of the body. Participants are guided through a series of 26 postures, each increasing in physical challenge. Participants of all ages notice an increase in energy, strength, balance, flexibility and mental focus. The body is flushed of toxins, leaving a deep sense of relaxation and well-being.
Relax, Restore, Renew: Yoga for Balance This physically gentle yet energetically deliberate class is open to all. Using
yoga poses as a foundation for exploration, students will be encouraged to move like themselves in an environment that encourages deep focus on physical sensation. The aim of the class is to relax the body in order to restore our energies and renew our faith in our choices and our power.

I teach a style of yoga which is compassionate and rich with
insight as I incorporate asana (postures) to stretch, strenghten, tone, balance and detoxify to body; pranayama (breath/energy control) to learn how to harness and utilize energy; meditation to control the random fluctuations of the mind promoting focus and healthy thought habits; and kriya to cleanse the body and mind of impurities.
Yoga is for everyone, no body is too old, weak or inflexible to benefit from the life transforming practice of yoga. Each class is tailored to the needs of the group or individual according to their level of fitness and interests.
My mission is to bring the mind, body and spirit of students back into alignment with nature and their higher, divine selves.
