Classes

Classes

 Yoga Style

Classes incorporate years of study of many different styles of Yoga (mainly Anusara Yoga, Embodied Flow, Iyengar Yoga, and Ashtanga Vinyasa), Meditation, Yoga Philosophy, Pranayama, Ayurveda, safe alignment, Feldenkrais, Body Mind Centering, various somatic practices, free movement and dance, and a deep exploration of movement, embodiment, and life.

 What to expect

Each class is a unique blend of all of these influences, tailored to what will best serve the class and individual. Classes provide a platform for a soulful, personalized, and transformative exploration of embodiment, movement, and life. Most classes also include Pranayama and Meditation. Classes are suitable for all levels and ages of practitioner.

Intention

My intention is to hold space for an intimate exploration of the layers of ourselves. I hope to provide a space for you to feel free in your practice and to discover and explore your beings’ intelligence and freedom.

There is no “right” or “wrong” way of moving and being. The classes provide a safe container for you to explore the depths of who you are and what feels good and whole for you.

Suggestions

Some suggestions to ensure that you get the full benefits of each class:

• Try not to eat heavy foods at least 2 hours before class.

• Wear comfortable, breathable clothing (and bring a layer to wear during Savasana)

• Bring water

• Try to avoid wearing strong perfume to class as some students have allergies and are sensitive to smells.

• Please let me know about any current injuries that you’re dealing with.

• Please arrive at least 10 minutes early…if you arrive late have a seat and wait quietly until the introduction is finished…you’re welcome to set up your mat once the intro is finished.

• If you need to leave before class ends please leave prior to Savasana (final relaxation) and make sure you take at least a few moments on your own in Balasana (child’s pose) or Savasana before leaving so that you can ground yourself before leaving.

• Please read our terms & conditions before you join a class or event.

• If you have any questions just ask :-)! Enjoy!
