My love of yoga spans the spectrum from hot and sweaty Vinyasa to sweet and nurturing Restorative. I'm inspired by many different types of yoga and movement and incorporate elements of each into my classes, which include; Hot, Power, Restorative, and Sweat & Surrender. To my Power and Hot classes, I bring a creative and fluid sequencing of asana with a strong emphasis on safe alignment. You can expect an intelligent, deep, breath centered practice. To my Restorative classes, I do my best to offer a calm and grounding presence that allows my students to release the stress of the outside world and heal on a deep, compassionate level. My experience as a certified Thai Yoga Therapist through Lotus Palm is reflected in a balanced teaching style and nurturing assists. My Sweat & Surrender classes are a lovely combination of all my offerings.
My past and present teachers and influences include Heather Tiddens, Cheri Clampett, David Regelin, Nevine Michaan, and Schuyler Grant.
