I see Yoga as a path to peace, a truly individualized beautiful gift that offers a deeper understanding of who we really are. My lore through this sacred life philosophy, and thus also my teaching, focuses on the power of practice with intention and awareness, connecting with the soul, moving with patience and un-learning and re-learning life lessons through self-exploration and quiet contemplation.
I have studied with a myriad of Yoga Professors and have a wide breadth of understanding for the spiritual, mental, phisical and therapeutic aspects of the practice. My experience and devoted education spans many lineages and styles of Yoga, aligning with the teachings of the Master T. Krishnamacharya.
Practicing and teaching from intuitive guidance connected to the heart I make use of yogic methods to deepen the connection to our inner life force. Building a complete practice including Asanas (postures), Pranayamas (breathing exercises), Kriyas (purification), Mantras (chanting), Bandhas (locks), Mudras (gestures) and Meditation, along with TaiChi, Re-education of Movements and Pilates principles.
While investigating and tutoring different styles -Vinyasa, Liquid Flow, Hatha, Ashtanga, Swastya and Restorative, I hold true to the principle of customizing the Sadhana (regular spiritual exercise) to meet the changing individual needs of those whom I am working with, such as my private students, group classes, yoga for surfers and meditation classes.
I began to give lessons in Yoga supported by extensive preparation of over 15 years training in Yoga. And have also been learning and bringing out Reiki, TaiChi, Cristian, Zen, Chakra and Mantra Meditation.
My pupils consider me to be a creative, peacefull, deep, knowledgable and dedicated teacher.
