Yoga for Every Body

I can honestly say that Yoga saved my life. I dabbled in athletic-style Yoga for a number of years before I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that ravaged my body and took all my energy. In order to heal from the effects of Chron’s disease and years of abusing food and over-exercising. I knew I had to do something different; and to change my mindset from its afflictions too...stress, self-criticism, and perfectionism. I wanted to find a way to be kinder to my body and slow down enough so I could reconnect to my natural wisdom. Yoga provided me with a template to do all that and so much more.

I want to share that with the world! I’ve done extensive training as a teacher and bodyworker, eventually opening my own studio. I’ve been a teacher for 25 years now! It has been my guiding light and my refuge. My touchstone to the sacred. I am still in love with Yoga!

If you’ve tried Yoga and felt it wasn’t for you or found yourself feeling like a fish out of water in a class, there’s another option! If you have arthritis, chronic pain, autoimmune disease, stress-related health issues, are overweight, stiff as a board, recovering from injury or illness….then you are the perfect fit for my classes and programs. I welcome you to come as you are and know that my instruction will meet you where you’re at!

Restore Your Core

A 2 Part series

Mondays, December 6 & 13 6-7:15pm

A weak core can cause a host of issues that arise from spinal misalignment and poor posture. The core is so much more than  abdominal muscles; it's composed of many different muscle groups connecting the pelvis to the the spine and hips. Our core is our center of gravity and stability. To work the core effectively we must strengthen and balance all the contributing muscle groups.

From the Yoga perspective the core body is home to the solar plexus chakra, our 'personal power' center. When this chakra is open and balanced, we have the energy and confidence to be our best selves.

In this online series we'll explore core building and rebalancing, all designed to create a strong, balanced body. Toning your core is NOT just about doing a hundred crunches a day! When approached  from a multi-faceted perspective, working your core muscles is not only effective but also empowering!
