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.
