I was trained in the Anusara method of alignment-based yoga. My teaching focuses on alignment principles and how practicing in this way can change our lives off the mat, allowing us to become more connected with our life purpose and free to choose the path that is right for each of us. My teaching also empowers students to connect with their own creativity, by recognizing that we are co-creators in our poses and in everything we do and that within each of us we contain a spark of the divine. When we line up with our higher Selves and something bigger than or egos, the sparks of creativity naturally flow and we are able to express ourselves authentically. We also learn about our place as one being in the interconnected web of life and appreciate that everything we do affects everything else. When we come to this realization, we learn the importance of giving and receiving and to live with more compassion for others and ourselves.
