Yoga is an absolute gift, within this simple practice, your body becomes strong and flexible. Your mind calmer and clearer. Yoga offers you space and time to be with yourself and experience yourself in new ways. All you have to do is practice and over the years the benefits just continue to mount in practical and magical ways!
Foundations Of Yoga
Foundation Classes - In this class, we move through our yoga practice at a pace that allows me to break down the elements of the postures and give options on posture variations.
Great for those who are new to yoga or enjoy a slower pace, this class focuses on the intricacies of each posture, and how each individual experiences it.
If you prefer we can work one to one. Together we can decide on your areas of focus, and pace the class to maximize the development of your particular practice.
If you are completely new to yoga I offer a four-class Beginners Series, which can be great to complete before joining the group classes.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
You are such a wonderful yoga teacher! As a beginner, I really appreciate your clear, calm, reassuring manner, and how you simplify each pose so that I can do each one successfully. I also love your self- deprecating sense of humor; in these challenging times, I think maintaining such a sense of humor is vital to our wellbeing. Can't wait for your next series of yoga classes!
Why Yoga For Cancer ?
Happily, there is an abundance of scientific research showing how yoga benefits those with cancer. Improved energy, better sleep, quicker recovery, and a reduction in anxiety and depression are among the many reported results.
I have been practicing yoga for 20 years and have been teaching for 17. In my own moments of ill health, I have found myself drawn to my yoga mat more than ever. Sometimes I would just lie there and allow my body to rest. Yoga is an ally, a supporter, moving you forward to a better life. And it does so quietly – so quietly, you might not even notice it happening.
