PHILOSOPHY
"life is a balance of holding on and letting go." Rumi.
I strive to give good yoga - a balance of strong asana, breathing and a mind that is truly present and engaged. Each sequence is unique - a juicy blend of yoga (vinyasa/ashtanga) and movement of all kinds. In class, we strive to tap in to the most Pure version of ourselves so that we can connect to one intention.

Yoga is harmony through living mindfully on and off the mat.
