Somatic instruction based in an understanding of yoga, functional kinesiology, and the archetypes our bodies can explore . Tailored to the needs of your body and informed by our massage work.
I see yoga as a spiritual practice, an opportunity to discover the magic that is the marrow of our bones. The practice is not something we impose on the body, but rather a remembering of ourselves as instruments in the orchestra of life.
In full classes, I strive to be honorable of the threads of authentic yoga tradition and other sacred spiritual practices while sharing from a place of authentic present-moment emergence. My teaching is specific and gentle, direct and metaphorical, weaving a temple in the midst of the everyday and inviting you to open to that liminal space where your soul lives. Movement recommendations are offered after most bodywork sessions, and full classes are available.
Since 2004 my joy has been to provide a space to explore true embodiment, focusing on the foundational, structural, and mythical aspects of the asanas to empower students to profoundly understand their unique bodies.
This can help people feel safe and connected in any yoga class they might attend in the future. Private yoga classes are an excellent adjunct to bodywork, supporting you to create lasting change from the inside out that harmonizes with and supports the work we do on the table. I also bring the awareness cultivated by over a decade of teaching yoga to my bodywork sessions.
Complete beginners and advanced practitioners, older people and young athletes all feel comfortable in my classes because the work is tailored to each student's needs, and lays a foundation for truly understanding yoga - from the inside out.
