Yoga is truly a way of life. A way to live a more meaningful and purposeful life. My philosophy is to provide a safe space for the yoga practitioner where people can come as they are and enter into the present moment. A space where you can come out of the mind and enter into the physical body; letting go of all judgments and to just be. The practice of yoga itself is truly the teacher and I am the guide who offers suggestions. To me, it’s all about awareness. Yoga encourages us to move with mindfulness, compassion, and intention and that transfers over to almost every aspect of our daily lives. It’s about learning and practicing on the mat so we can spread this joy, happiness, presence, and love to others off of the mat. My positive approach to teaching provides for a playful atmosphere where I weave together free-fluid movements with the sounds of the breath while always coming back to intuition. I enjoy flowing through funky transitions and settling deeply into a shape allowing the asana to fully encompass the body. Through these transitions and asanas, I will attempt to guide the class to discover these new depths, kind of like exploring the deep sea. My intention is to give students the feeling and experience of oneness, wholeness, connectedness and to cultivate a positive state of being. My professional background lies in nature and forest connection and I often bring these “natural” aspects into the class. Whether it’s placing our awareness on the elements within us or building a sequence like building a fire, it’s all connected. Yoga inspires me to move throughout my day with fluidity, ease, presence, and compassion. It reminds me to let go and to surrender to the present moment and to cultivate that positive state of being.
