What do you like most about teaching yoga?:

Teaching yoga gives me a chance to connect with others. I feel that I can help my students both physically and mentally by providing them with a traditional yoga class.

Teaching philosophy / describe your average class:

I try to teach a physical class as well as a meditative movement class. I base my class on a combination of asthanga sequences and vinyasa movement. My class will encompass strengthening by holding poses and flexibility through breathing in the poses. I will also use music to make my class more more meditative and interesting. I believe that yoga can develop a person’s strength and flexibility and in turn have a calming effect needed in everyday life.
