My classes are 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.

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

Class Descriptions:

Illuminated Insight Yoga -  This intentional practice combines the rich teachings of yoga philosophy coordinated with body, breath and concentration methods.  Āsana, pranāyāmā , and dhārana are skillfully combined to offer a unique transformation of awareness and perception of awareness. Yoga is a practice of stilling the mind to experience deeper consciousness and connection. This class supports the great promise of yoga’s evolutionary experiment. Sweat Level  = 2 - 4 

Vinyasa Yoga - experience warrior poses, balancing, stretching and movement with your breath. Vinyasa classes start gentle and build. Students are encouraged to continue with the movement that best suits their body and ability and not to push beyond their limitations. All levels are welcome and options for more gentle movement are offered throughout class. Sweat Level  = 3 - 8 (how hard you work is up to you.)

Vinyasa and Vibrations - class begins with breathwork and a settling meditation with singing bowls. An all levels vinyasa flow follows. Students are treated to a long savasana and ending meditation with the singing bowls. Suitable for all levels able to move through a basic vinyasa class. Sweat level = 7

Soulful Slow Vinyasa - class is similar to a traditional vinyasa, with a little longer hold time in each pose. Class will start gentle and build without speeding up the flow. Students are encouraged to continue with the movement that best suits their body and ability and not to push beyond their limitations. All levels are welcome and options for more gentle movement are offered throughout class. Sweat Level  = 3 - 8 (how hard you work is up to you.)

Yoga Nidra - the "sleeping" yoga is an ancient, guided meditation, designed to take you into a deep state of relaxation and help you relieve stress. Yoga nidra stimulates anti-aging and healing in your body. Students rest in a very comfortable position, usually on their backs, with pillows and a soft blanket. Many also like eye covers and a pillow or bolster under the knees to soften the lower back. This class is suitable for all fitness levels and abilities. Sweat Level = 0

Sound Bath - Sound bowls, chimes, and gongs are played to ease you into a blissful state of relaxation. Different tones correspond with different energy centers in the body. Some participants experience reduced pain, more peace, better sleep, and an overall increase in their general wellbeing. Simply listen and enjoy the vibrational experience. Sweat Level = 0
