Join Me for Yoga

My classes gentle and thoughtful,  sprinkled with stories, themes and a chance to challenge yourself. I create sequences designed to take you deeper into your journey of the self, through the self and to the Self.  Come experience a class with me to discover the amazing peace, relaxing calm and expansive understanding yoga can bring to your life.

One of my passions is teaching Yoga Nidra. This ancient practice of deep relaxation means Yogic Sleep and each 10 minutes of practice can be the equivalent of an hour of deep sleep.  The benefits are incredible.  And private session can afford you even deeper rest and an opportunity to have a customized session designed for your specific needs. Learn more about Yoga Nidra here.

I’m amazed and grateful for the gift yoga brings to my life and became a certified teacher so I could share yoga with others. I believe yoga is a lifetime learning process. Some of the amazing teachers and yogis who’ve influenced me include Amanda Russcol, Bhava Ram, Cheryl Deer, Ginny Biddle, Hansa Knox, Jen Hicks, Jeremy Wolf, John Vosler, Jordan Smiley, Kamini Desai, Kristine Whittle, Lindsay Gonzales,  Lorin Roche, Rod Stryker, Santosh Powell, and Stacy McDonald.

Yoga is good for the soul and you’re welcome in my classes!

Chakra Balancing Yoga Nidra with Sound Bowls – on Zoom – https://zoom.us/j/4838123146

Join new people around the globe for this Chakra Balancing Yoga Nidra on Zoom!

Ines Schubi, from Melborne,has created and hosts a free wellness pop up. This week’s class, taught by Janie Gianotsos, will start with a short overview of the seven major energy centers in the body – the Chakras and move to a guided yoga nidra with sound bowls to balance your energy.

Yoga nidra – the “sleeping” yoga – allows you to reach deep levels of healing relaxation. You can’t do yoga nidra wrong, simply find a comfortable place to listen and experience this guided meditation. Get comfy – lay on a soft bed or mat/blanket, rest in a reclining chair, etc.. (Think slumber party – a pillow, blanket or towel rolled under the knees, a soft cover if you tend to be cool, eye pillow – whatever makes you feel supremely comfortable!) for a 40 minute guided journey into deep relaxation, designed to help you balance your body’s energy and align and harmonize your Chakras. We’ll wrap-up with Q & A and reflection on the experience.

Vinyasa, Gentle Yoga and Yoga Nidra every week this summer – weather permitting!
