I love yoga because it reconnects me with the pure joy in movement. The more I practice, the stronger and more playful I connects me, through the focus of breath and mind, with a deeper energy and relaxation. In my classes, I strive to create a safe place to awaken connections with your body. You can expect to explore the contours of your flexibility and strength. I began my yoga journey in the 1970’s when my mom took a yoga class and brought home all those cool postures like camel and plow and wheel which are easy when you are eight. It continued in Theatre School, where yogic breathing practices and Sun Salutations were part of the warm up routine. Over the next ten years I studied, taught, created and performed theatre and dance, drawing on the deep wisdom of ancient and indigenous cultures from around the world. A trip to India in 1999 lead me to a change of my course in my thirties. I embarked on the extraordinary journey of motherhood and decided get a degree to work in health care. Exhausted after 10 years of corporate stress and desk life, I returned to yoga seeking a balance between the right brain focused world of work and joyous expression of the body. This re-awakening and reconnecting is still very fresh. I completed my 200 hour teacher training with Empowered Yoga in 2017. Having also completed Yoga Nidra teacher training with Laeonie Gano, I am very excited to share the deep relaxation and soul setting of this tantric yoga practice. Currently, I am delving into meditation and yoga philosophy. What excites me most is that the tools developed thousands of years ago to resolve human suffering, still work to resolve our very modern sufferings. For all that we are living in a very different world, we are still only human, struggling with what perplexes us still: how to create joyousness and eliminate suffering. And that connects me to the human experience.
