Eight years ago, due to the urging of one of my teachers, I decided
to share my experience and begin teaching. Since that first day in
class, I have never looked back only forward, with a passion and
joy that I find in every opportunity I have to work with students,
believing there is a form of yoga suitable for everyone, regardless
of age or physical limitations.
I'm certified and registered in Hatha Yoga, by Yoga Alliance, USA and
the European Yoga Union,having completed 400+ hours at Yoga
Vidya/Sivananda in Germany, and E-RYT500 USA, I have also added additional teachers certification and / or workshops with the following teachers: Judith Lasater (Anatomy, Relax & Renew), Desiree Rumbaugh (Insight Yoga), Gary Kraftsow (ViniYoga), Richard Rosen, Cindy Lee, Liz Franklin (Chair Yoga), Frank Jude Boccio, Tias Little & Jason Crandall.
Currently I’m finishing my studies of Yoga Therapy Rx with Dr. Larry Payne at Loyola Marymount University.
In my classes, I emphasize the art of breathing, movement in
synergy, with a strong focus on a solid foundation of asana and
alignment while also developing flexibility and building strength.
Always offering students optional variations / adaptations
of asanas to suit their individual bodies and never asking them to
leave their comfort zone as pain is not gain.
I'm teaching Therapeutic Gentle Yoga to all ages plus “Yoga as a Solution” for Boomers/Seniors, which takes you from doing yoga ….in the Chair to ….with the Chair to ….on the Mat and eventually standing,
with an emphasis on prevention and independence.
My teaching philosophy is based on a contemporary interpretation of ancient sources without fashionable trends, while establishing a coherent discipline with therapeutic benefit.
