I feel, as a life long student of yoga, I share the gifts and benefits of yoga with all who join me in the class. When I teach and practice yoga, the breath is always central. As T. Krishnamacharya taught, "Breath is central to yoga because it is central to life............and yoga is about life."
As we practice pranayama (breath control) and asanas (postures) together with the breath leading and our body's movement following, we reconnect with that deeper intuitive part of our being. We can then experience feelings of well being, ease and peace that we remember as our true, natural state of being. It is my intention that over time through our work together you will develop an intuitive personal practice that guides you back to this natural state. As you progress, the energy of well being that you reconnect to, flows from your yoga mat into your everyday life. This will positively influence not only your physical body but your relationship with yourself, others and the natural world.
I had the good fortune of studying with Malek Daouk, a life long student of T.K.V. Desikachar, during his yoga teacher training from 2002 - 2006 in Lausanne, Switzerland. During the study of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras with Malek I was introduced to Vedic Chanting and later to Nada Yoga. I continued my studies of the application of sound in yoga with the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram's Vedic Chanting teacher training from 2007 - 2009.
During my years of learning and practice I've attended various workshops and events as well as teaching yoga classes regularly. Most recently I completed the Yoga Pranala Intensive Teacher Training (RYS 200) with Linda Madani at Intuitive Flow Yoga in Ubud, Bali. The blend of ancient Balinese healing techniques with Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga was a unique and enriching experience.
