Classes, Series & Training

I design progressive series and courses with the individual in mind. Creating an intimate and safe environment for learning. Adaptations, modifications and safety a priority in order to keep you engaged and confident in your ability in a fun, challenging and friendly environment.

5 Week Session Starts April 25

“Prana” is the one life force that permeates all living things and in fact all matter. This cohesive, animating force is also known as “Maha Prana” or great prana. In the human body, this universal prana has been observed to move in specific ways in specific regions in the body, regulating and controlling physical and mental function. Though there are 49 distinct prana vayus or types of vayus in the body, five principle vayus or “panacha pranas” are important for the yogi to recognize. Early Bird registration $130, tuition goes up to $150 4/14. REGISTER NOW!


Better Thyroid Function

1 in 8 women will have thyroid dysfunction in their lifetime. For those willing to embrace a simple daily practice symptoms can be reduced if not entirely eliminated. I offer in depth study of the effects of yoga on thyroid function, how to correctly perform postures for the greatest bang for your buck and why correct alignment is essential to healing.

I have first hand experience with Hashimoto’s and precancerous goiter and I want to share my story of how yoga helped me reduce symptoms and eliminate medication.

Contact me if you are interested in joining future classes and or workshops that are fun, educational and interactive in order to start healing body, mind and spirit.

8 Week Series Starts April 27

Mid-morning All Level Practice (MIN 6 Required)
8 week Session Starts 4/27/2017 ends 6/15/2017
meeting Thursdays 9:30-11:00am
Tuition: $120 full series

We will explore breathing, meditation and connecting with our energy body and the Chakra System in a question friendly environment.

This is a progressive practice utilizing multiple techniques in order to release tension, improve core stability and learn key yoga postures. This is a great way to start or continue a yoga practice and reinforce proper form, function and postural alignment.

Foundation to Flight

I hear all the time from new students how badly they wish to do impressive arm balances. I witness their attempts in classes and think “If only I could have a few hours of their time”.

No one starts out in life running sprints and marathons, yet for some reason we have this dillusional idea that we can skip the basics of yoga and go straight to some of the most difficult asanas.

Our bodies have developed poor posture and bad habits and those things need to be addressed before we can soar like a crow. Forget about rockin the peacock. That aint gonna happen until your core stabilizing muscles are activated.

Watch the schedule for upcoming workshops.

Series, Workshops & Continuing Education

Therapeutic

Yoga has become especially popular for musculoskeletal issues like lower and upper back pain, sciatica, and shoulder, neck and hip pain. It is helpful for managing the effects of stress and easing anxiety symptoms. Specialized classes that progress from one practice to the next and in depth workshops are a great place to learn and understand the many benefits of yoga.

Body Mechanics

Delve deeper into postural alignment and the bio-mechanics of movement. Take more time to practice individual poses and develop a true understanding of how your joints should work. In order to progress and improve flexility, strength and mobility you need to understand why corrective individualized exercise is so important.

Restorative

Discover how relaxation, meditation, proper breathing and gentle supported postures effect the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Learn how to safely and effectively practice inversions and other difficult but therapeutic yoga asanas that are designed to improve health and vitality. Get blown away by the power of slowing down and restoring your body to a state of homeostasis.
