The Yoga Practice
I bring “Spirit” into class and use asanas to spring board us into deeper aspects of yoga such as: meditation, pranayama, sound, philosophy, chakras, intuitive movement and energy healing.
Somatic Yoga-This is by far my favorite to go when I am in distress or in need to recharge. Understanding that the body keeps an emotional score, a Somatic practice integrates breath with intuitive movements to create and facilitate new pathways of healing not only physically, but emotionally and energetically.
Vinyasa- Classes are often a combination of Ashtanga inspired poses threaded by vinyasas. Classes are slow but progressive and dynamic flow designed to build strength and stability, while raising awareness to control the breath creating internal focus.
Yin- Yin practice is a much slower paced class with more space to experience the moment and witness the fluctuations of the mind. Yin is a great practice for joint health, mobility, circulation, breath and mental focus. It is also wonderful for slowing down the nervous system into our parasympathetic mode, decreasing stress and anxiety.
Restorative- Our bodies have an innate ability to relax given the right circumstances. My classes are a series of easy and supported poses held for a long time. Emphasis is on releasing muscular tension and relaxing our nervous system. Restorative is an amazing practice for reducing stress and anxiety.
Pranayama - Becoming more and more popular my breath work session has transformed the way many of my students view and understand the breath.
