I am currently taking a hiatus from yoga-teaching: any upcoming classes will be listed on my Bennu Yoga dot com site. I maintain a connection to my original yoga-site, Stanwood Swim & Fitness.
I have a goal to develop a new career-path, in physical therapy, and am focusing my energies on that.
I have been practicing yoga since 1998 and certified to teach in 2012, through Pacific Yoga in Seattle. My teaching-style draws on trainings with Theresa Elliott, as well as my own yoga instructor (she teaches only private sessions and prefers to remain out of the public-eye). The writings and workshops by Judith Lasater have also helped to shape my practice in both teaching and yoga itself. My style is alignment-based but always in movement. Flow is medicine.
I find a way to flow every class, meaning that the poses tend to string together. We rarely stop to set things up, and I try not to say too much as we move. All yoga can contribute to functional everyday movement, so when the flow is safe and alignment-aware, it contributes to how life works.
I train regularly and all are listed, on my Yoga Alliance profile. I may teach a regular class again, eventually, but for now I'm focused on the present: that includes some study-time, in preparation for a retraining program.
