In my classes, I emphasize the art of breathing, movement in synergy, with a strong focus on a solid foundation of asana and alignment while also developing flexibility and building strength. Always offering students optional variations / adaptations of asanas to suit their individual bodies and never asking them to leave their comfort zone as pain is not gain. My teaching philosophy is based on a contemporary interpretation of ancient sources without fashionable trends, while establishing a coherent discipline with therapeutic benefit.
