ABOUT MY YOGA TEACHING STYLE
My goal is to make yoga accessible to all. I am gravitating toward sharing the benefits of yoga with office workers, entrepreneurs and anyone else who finds themselves engaging in long periods of sitting and staring at a computer screen.
I also have experience teaching people with different health issues, proving that yoga can be a useful part of the treatment plan for many medical conditions.
I teach breath-centered, therapeutic yoga, where the main focus is to link movement with breath and integrate it with precise alignment and meditation to create an inner journey towards healing and empowerment. Classes are introspective with lots of options to modify for all levels of students, emphasizing breath, and inner awareness.
