Yoga, Breath, Meditation & More!

My Background:

I began practicing yoga in 1999, after the birth of my first child, and discovered tremendous peace and tranquility.  I attended Ashtanga RYT training in 2012, at the Bay Area Yoga Center in Wisconsin and began teaching.  The year-long course went beyond the trendy physical practice of yoga into the deeper, esoteric roots of the system.

  • Yoga = Union.  All yoga practices promotoe the union of body, mind & spirit.

  • Namaste = The eternal essence in me recognizes and honors the same eternal essence in you.  This popular term acknowledges everyone as being equal & divine.

  • Samadhi (The ultimate result of Ashtanga yoga) = "Perfect union of the individualized soul with infinite spirit.  It is an experience of divine ecstasy as well as of superconscious perception; the soul perceives the entire universe."  ~Paramhansa Yogananda

 

What I Offer:

I have taught a wide variety of yoga styles, but my favorite is gentle, restorative yoga with focus on breath, meditation, and relaxation.  Why?  Because I know how good it feels and how good it is for you!  The energy I bring should assist you to move your body as if it's light as a feather and leave you feeling more relaxed and centered.  I love to teach gentle stretching, breath, guided meditations, relaxations and chair yoga for those who aren't physically up to (or down to) the task of floor yoga.  I also love to incorporate awareness of consciousness and energy dynamics.  All that being said, I'm definitely not the right teacher if you're looking for a hot or power yoga experience!   I'm here to assist you to relax, destress, open your mind, and create an environment for mental and physical rebalancing.
