and am now opening my practice in Portland.
I love yoga. I practice yoga, because it brings me to a natural, simple and true space. I practice yoga because it grounds me while connecting me to the vastness of the universe. I teach yoga, because I simply must share these practices that I love so much with other students.
Although the physical practice of yoga leads to myriad physical benefits, I love what yoga does for my heart and soul the best. By living my yoga, I feel like I am part of a movement toward a more positive human experience.
I am a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance and teach classes like hatha flow yoga, bliss flow yoga, juicy joints yoga (yoga for stiff bodies), kids’ yoga, elder yoga and family yoga. I am an activist for the environment and an artist, and I try to bring the creativity and passion from those areas of my life into each yoga class.
I strive to share “whole yoga” with my amazing students: a complete practice consisting of asana (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), study of the yoga sutras and other yogic texts, repetition of mantra, meditation, bhakti (devotion) and other practices as students express interest. Please contact me for information about private classes, corporate yoga or workshops.
