“ Yoga is like music. The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind and the harmony of the soul, create the symphony of life” B.K.S.Iyengar
What started out as an attempt to continue rehabilitation for shoulder surgery has turned into an ongoing passion for the practice of yoga. I feel that yoga literally saved my life and found me at the exact time I needed it the most. Since 1998, when I walked into my first yoga class, I felt at home. I feel incredibly grateful for the balance, calmness and strength that yoga has brought into my life.
With a background in dance and a lifelong commitment to health and fitness, yoga was a natural progression. I love to share yoga with others that need it and those that don’t know they need it yet. One of my favorite quotes is that, “Attitude is the difference between an ordeal and an adventure.” I believe that the practice of yoga literally changes your attitude and ability to handle the challenges in life.
Vinyasa means "flow" or merging movement with the breath. These classes focus on breathing and seek to move students through a sequence of postures as the breath flows in and out. Using this breath, heat or "tapas" warms the body allowing the practitioner to move deeper into postures and eventually deeper into their own personal practice. Vinyasa yoga increases strength, stamina and flexibility while calming and steadying the mind. This class style is inherently diverse and sequencing will vary with each instructor's personal flavor.
