For beginners and more experienced yogis who want to refine their practice...
My classes are grounded in the principles of yoga, alignment, and balance which you can then apply to all of your classes and activities, practicing more safely, effectively, and with greater enjoyment.
"Yoga is about connection - offering a way to more deeply connect with and unleash your true, full, worthy, beautiful self that always exists inside and that rightfully has a place in this universe! This truth inside is what I call the Bliss Bud.
When we experience this freedom, we can more honestly connect with others, growing communities of greater support, happiness and health. This is our Bliss Bud blossoming, spreading life-affirming energy across the world.
Yoga is not about "perfect" poses - or even "perfect" bodies. It's about present practice to feel better and serve our lives. True perfection in a yoga practice is truly being in the moment.
My goal is to help you cultivate this kind of practice, so that you can enjoy this freedom more and more in your daily life. It is not complicated; it's just learning how to pay attention to your body and mind while working within respectful guidelines. My students report that they feel more engaged and enjoy their practice more with this simple approach.
Rather than forcing our bodies into perceived shapes, we can learn to understand how to listen to our bodies so that we can move and challenge ourselves in a way that energizes and serves us.
Rather than chasing perceived ideals, we can learn to accept and love our bodies right now, by engaging with ourselves in respectful thoughts and actions - something we can practice on the mat and take with us when we roll up our mats.
Whether we experience depression, anxiety, emptiness, loss, weakness, or feel pain from physical or emotional traumas - these all create a sense of disconnection from your true self.
Practice generates connection, and this is where healing can happen."
