Transformed by my teachers, life experiences and different styles of yoga that I have practiced over the last 10 years including Bikram, Ashtanga, Hatha, Jivamukti and Iyengar, I bring a sense of empowerment, both physical and internal, to every class. Through intention, humor, pranayama and asana my goal is to have every student leave class feeling refreshed, renewed, worked out and powerful. My style of teaching focuses on clear instruction that underscores the important relationship between alignment, breath, fluid movement and strength. I give students both a vigorous and strong physical practice as well as offer an internal connection. I put an emphasis on thoughtful, intelligent sequencing and pace. My classes are physically and mentally challenging, however I always work to meet the students where they are each day. I deliver each class in English and Sanskrit, with music, demonstrations when needed and hands on adjustments. My goal with every class is to create a space for work, expression, enthusiasm, fun, connection, renewal, contemplation and reflection.
