Yoga transformed my life over ten years ago and gently supported me through traumatic changes.
I discovered yoga when my low back went into severe spasm in a step aerobics class--lying on the floor next to my step equipment, wondering when I would be able to stand upright. I spent many years under the care of various healers with a hyper mobile SI (sacroiliac) joint. Goodbye to aerobics and hello to non impact yoga. Yoga has allowed me to live practically pain free, completely mobile and maintain a healthy back.
Little did I know just how much I would need yoga when my marriage fell apart and so did everything I thought was real in my world. Yoga initiated my journey inward and the recovery of who I am in this life. Our bodies are always drawing our attention to what is unbalanced and needs healing on the inside.
I am passionate about sharing the practice with others and passing on the invaluable gifts. Over many years of practice and teaching, yoga has helped me become more comfortable in my own skin, has given me the courage to speak my truth, and has allowed me to step into a meaningful and fulfilling life.
Students describe my teaching as “enriching, healing and joyfully expressed.” I encourage and empower students at every level, any age, gender and with all body types to align their bodies, minds, and hearts with their highest sense of self. Whether you’re new to yoga, advancing to the next level, seeking relief from injuries and pain, or simply desiring a personal and unique experience for your mind and body, I warmly invite you to discover your full potential with one of everyBODYoga's offerings.
Creative and coherent sequencing, clear and precise instruction, and a light-hearted, down to earth attitude are signature elements of my classes. With compassion, detailed instructions and personal attention, I assist my students in managing stress, calming the mind, relaxing and attaining optimal wellbeing. everyBODYoga is an integrative, functional, therapeutic style of conscious corrective fitness. I teach alignment based Hatha yoga.
I have been a dedicated practitioner since 2003 and a teacher since 2005 when I earned my 500 hour Hatha Yoga Level 1 certification through the Southern California Vedantic Center. My training included studies in asana, anatomy, pranayama, yogic philosophy and meditation. I am registered with the Yoga Alliance and CPR certified through the National Safety Council.
everyBODYoga classes integrate the wisdom cultivated through my personal journey of study in multiple styles of yoga, my personal practice, continuing education, my years of teaching experience and from my honored teachers. As a mobile yoga teacher in Marin County, I offer one-on-one sessions and group classes in studio, at home and work in the North Bay Area and beyond.
everyBODYoga and I look forward to seeing you soon!
