What do you like most about teaching yoga?:
I teach yoga because it combines some of my favorite things: people and movement. I enjoy getting to know my students and learning about their diverse backgrounds and interests. I am fascinated by the capability of the human body and how yoga can help to make the body & mind move and feel better.
Teaching philosophy / describe your average class:
All of my classes include movement, breathing and meditation. You can expect a good flow followed by a long savasana. My movement sequences vary depending on what I’m interested in that day… but draw from modalities including yoga, dance, fitness and physical therapy. My favorite classes have a great playlist and flows that move with the music. You’ll learn, work hard, have fun and enjoy deep relaxation!
