breatH . floW . mindfulness
I began practicing yoga in 2001 as a way to strengthen my body after the birth of my first son. I discovered a life altering way to focus my mind through breathing and movement. This is when my practice really took hold.
Yoga calms me, makes me less reactive, more mindful of my actions, and more accepting of others and myself. It is the practice of paying attention to the habitual way your thoughts unfold and uncovers the deep grooves of the mind and layers of self that that we can truly know ourselves. A regular yoga practice nourishes the heart and soul and helps you live life fully awake.
My classes emphasize clarity of alignment and a steady connection to the breath. Through clear instruction and an exploration of the eightfold path of Ashtanga yoga, I challenge my students to move beyond the physical practice and understand the impact that cultivating self love and awareness has off the mat.
I am so grateful for all of my teachers, my students, my partner Leiv and my children all of whom continually inspire me. I look forward to sharing this practice with you.
