We seek healing.
Healing is spirituality.
Each in our own way, we seek healing for that soft, tender spot that has been bruised.
I have been teaching Hatha Yoga in the Himalayan Tradition for 3 years and practicing for 10 years. I continue to learn from Himalayan Institute teachers such as Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Shari Friedrichsen, and Kate Kill. In addition, my teaching is inspired by Parayoga’s Rod Stryker, as well as Amy Ippoliti and Jason Crandell.
The formal stuff: 200-hour Hatha Yoga teaching certification from The Himalayan Institute in Pittsburgh. Trained with Prison Yoga Project to teach trauma-informed mindfulness practices. Registered with Yoga Alliance, and insured as a yoga instructor through Alliant.
My goal in teaching: To create a space where each of us re-members (through asana, breath & meditation) that we are enough.
I teach classes using the intelligent sequencing of hatha yoga, which emphasizes both stability and ease in body, mind, and breath. “Simple” poses are profound, beginner’s mind is encouraged, and loads of variations are offered. Classes move at a steady pace with a balance of “flow” to cultivate ease, and holding poses to cultivate strength. Each class culminates in a guided relaxation to soothe and / or energize the nervous system, and many classes include guided breathwork or a short meditation. Hatha yoga is more than asana, and suitable for any experience level … It is a truly holistic practice based in a living tradition of thousands of years.
Here’s where I’m currently teaching Hatha Yoga classes: Yoga Classes.
I look forward to meeting you on our mats 🙂
