What do you like most about teaching yoga?:
Teaching yoga gives me the ability to share something I am very passionate about to others. A yoga class is well-deserved "me time," and allows yogis a space to breathe, a place to heal, and a place to grow. The beauty of yoga is that it is individualized and can be modified to mold to each individuals need. My favorite part of teaching, is the ability to watch my students grow stronger each week and the enjoyment I feel when they are able to do something they've been wanting to do/improve upon.
Teaching philosophy / describe your average class:
Each week I open my class with a different theme. In the summer/fall 2018, I began incorporating restorative poses into my vinyasa classes, which I really enjoyed. I loved seeing yogis able to rest and relax not only their muscles, but also their minds. On average, my classes run 75 minutes and I try to incorporate not only the poses themselves, but breath work into each class.
