The Practice

Many people in the West define Yoga as the asana (physical postures) practice, and yet Yoga is much deeper then that.

Yoga means union. Union with your true Self, with others, with spirit.

There are many types of Yoga, just as there are many types of personalities.

My formal teaching is in Anusara Yoga – a physical practice that is heart inspiring and grounded in the five universal Principles of Alignment.  I also integrate practices from Hatha Yoga which combines the physical bodily postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), sense withdrawal (pratyahara), mental concentration (dharana) and meditation (dyana) with the goal of a healthy body and clear, calm mind. I inspire teachings and practices of the eight-limb-path Yoga, an eight-step guide to self-realization and enlightenment written in the Yoga Sutras over 4,000 years ago.

The Yoga classes I teach are at a basic level, flow with music and provide a steady and comfortable pace. With the modifications given, classes are appropriate for all level of experience. Each practice provides a focus on body alignment, deep breathing practices and a goal to meditate as you move.

I offer both a Basic Mixed Level and Gentle Yoga practice.
