My Approach To Yoga

I am a certified yoga therapist and instructor offering individualized therapy sessions and yoga classes to meet your health needs. I have a particular specialization in working with nervous system regulation and the vagus nerve to support individuals dealing with emotional imbalance and stress-related disorders.

I passionately believe in a full body approach to health and wellness Through yoga, we can honor the integrated nature of the physical body, emotional body, mind body and spiritual body to gain a deeper awareness and understanding of the whole self. When working with individuals who experience anxiety, depression and trauma, I blend somatic and cognitive approaches to orchestrate meaningful shift and change. 

When teaching yoga classes, my philosophy is you know your body best. I offer an atmosphere of listening to your body and honoring your limitations. This is what helps you practice safely.

I teach an embodied and therapeutic approach to yoga where the goal is to follow what feels natural in your body. Together, we explore certain shapes in the body as a “starting place” for movement. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to do any shape.

Yoga means union. Union of heart and mind. Union of body and breath. Union of attention and intention. Together through these practices, you have an opportunity to connect to your strength and find a sense of balance and heal from within.
