I offer alignment based vinyasa classes. My classes are fun and flowing where you are encouraged to meet yourself
on the mat. I love exploring how we can use the anatomy and alignment of the body to build a deeper awareness of ourselves moving through space. By moving the body through a variety of poses, breathing, meditating we get to know ourselves better and better. It's an honor and a joy to be able share that with my students and to be a part of that process.
I also offer corporate and private instruction in vinyasa and restorative yoga. In addition to yoga I'm a Reiki Master offering Reiki sessions by appointment.
