Mind-Body Wellness for Life
Let's make yoga empowering to all body types, ages and personalities
No matter your experience level, the intention is to make yoga accessible—to help you improve functioning, increase freedom of movement and feel more confident in your body. The result: Optimal wellness and graceful, embodied living for students of all ages.
My Unique Approach
In my study and practice of yoga and meditation of more than two decades, I’ve learned that the physical practice of yoga is both about wellness of body—and a metaphor for living well, navigating the world with skill and grace. The student develops self-knowledge of body mechanics, posture and muscle activation, cultivating new healthy habits. A concept of universal alignment is replaced by a functional approach that acknowledges not only the intention of the posture but each student’s unique biology and biography.
How we develop tension may be due to our inherently unique body structure. Our individuality determines our ability and progress in the yoga practice and its benefits. Many find that as they improve the mechanics of their body, it gradually translates into self-confidence, self-acceptance, and a way to be in the world that’s authentic, emotionally balanced, and empowering.
There’s a powerful paradox at play in yoga. When we focus less on ‘fixing’ what ails us, and more on learning and growing our skills, we learn to balance the dynamic of acceptance and change in a way that empowers us to be our best in surprising ways.
Are You Seeking More Mobility, Vitality and Confidence?
There is much therapeutic potential in yoga for both prevention and healing of injury and imbalance. My intention is to support you to gain strength, mobility, and vitality, grow confidence and improve quality of life.
When the breath, movement, concentration and relaxation come together in yoga practice, we experience integrated functioning. When practiced regularly, physical health, emotional resilience and mental clarity increase.
Yoga Sequence to Wake Up Your Core
Activate and engage the key muscles of the core to find more stability and ease of movement. With mindful attention to breath, you’ll move through core-strengthening and balancing poses to build strength and resilience, and cultivate focus.

"The spiritual journey which takes one from the base of an undisciplined life to the highest peak of a disciplined life is variously called the journey of yoga, the journey of the soul, the journey of consciousness, or the journey of eternal truth. This is not a straightforward journey, but a very intricate and uneven one. At times it can feel like an uphill journey all the way."
