My teaching style stands for possibility, transformation and empowerment! The first principle to having an empowered life and yoga practice is BE A YES for what is happening in your life and what you want to have happen. Being a yes sets the stage for unlimited possibility and confidence in your abilities to turn breakdowns into breakthroughs.
I treat each day as a possibility for growth and shift in my own perspective. I am energetic, curious and excited for what the practice of Yoga can bring to everyone. I feel strongly that yoga is for everyone, despite limitations or constraints; finding what gives each of person access to full on expression in a yoga pose gives me the greatest inspiration.
As a Certified Baptiste Yoga teacher I will use the methodology of Baptiste Yoga in and out of the classroom to fulfill my contribution by using each interaction I have on a daily basis, as possibility in making a life-altering difference and leaving people with more than they expected by creating fierce connection. I will create connection by holding space for others to have their experiences, putting my attention on active listening and leaving others in their own greatness.
My intention is to create, collaborate, generate inspiration and inspire others to be leaders in their own lives.
My favorite yoga practices are YIN yoga, Slow Flow Vinyasa, Power Yoga and the hotter the better!
In my own personal practice I have found that Less can be More. Power Yoga isn't always an intense physical practice but an opportunity for me to find ease and compassion for myself. Sometimes life has its distractions and stress, but through breathe (ujjayi) and neutral gaze (drishti) I find the cool calm center that unleashes unlimited power, elevating me to new levels in every area of my life.
When teaching a class, workshop or private yoga session, I invite inquiry, guide students to a new edge, using simple cues and speaking to what is happening in the present moment.
If someone says to me, they don't know if they are ready to yoga or join a class, I "You are ready NOW, Come as you are and not as you think you should be."
Its not about getting it right, its about new discovery and commitment to growth, don't despise the small beginnings.
