Yoga & Dance instructor
Yoga & dance, like love, open closed doors. Spiritually, they open doors of willingness ~as a physical Practices, they cross mind/body thresholds. As a teacher, it is an honor to open these doorways, to nurture, support, and expand a life, observing the alchemical transformation on the floor as it links to life. We voyage together, discovering vulnerability, resilience and courage as we learn headstands, mantras, arm balances, and Pranayama,.
Yoga is the unfolding of a heart, and whether instructing beginning or advanced students, Restorative, or Vinyasa Flow, my desire is to make the Yoga-Journey a heart-journey; joyous, expansive, exciting. I offer structures for a body’s unique needs, meeting it where it is, not where it thinks it should be. When appropriate, I teach a strongly physical Practice, with alignment and breath as a primary underpinning to asana, with mudra and mantra for the subtle body, and song and dance for the spirit. In creating a non-judgmental framework, I invoke the memory of a student who said, “Your classes are like a prayer.”
As an international teacher, I hear different languages, and see unique doorways, but the human spirit, remains the same; wild and wonderful, forgiving, and redemptive. My goal is to support that. Shakti Yoga Dances have been created to deepen Yoga’s heart and spirit connections, expressing the emotional body through asana. My Yoga opens to the earth in her seasons, incorporating the energy of solar/lunar cycles, while celebrating each body’s needs and gifts.
