Holistic Yoga Practice

My training includes over 800 hours of yoga training, including trauma-informed yoga, yoga and grief, yoga and addiction, and meditation and breath control techniques. Yoga was my lifesaver after a traumatic brain injury in 2000 and helped me on a long path of recovery from that and other traumas.

During my Vinyasa and Hatha Teacher Trainings, I learned that the practice of yoga extends well off of the mat and I now follow and practice the Ashtanga Yoga or Eight-Fold Path and bring these learnings into the classes I teach. I love to teach older active adults and beginners.  I love teaching restorative, gentle and chair yoga.

Breath Awareness

Yoga

During my Vinyasa and Hatha Teacher Trainings, I learned that the practice of yoga extends well off of the mat and I now follow and practice the Ashtanga Yoga or Eight-Fold Path and bring these learnings into the classes I teach. I love to teach older active adults and beginners. I also enjoy teaching Chair, Restorative, Yin, and Gentle mat classes. I’m certified in Restorative Aerial Yoga and love to combine it with my Sound Immersion. Being cocooned in a hammock in a resting state while hearing the frequencies and vibrations of the percussion instruments I play is just divine!

While I teach at several yoga studios in the Maryland area and in my home yoga studio. I’d also love to work individually with you to help develop a practice to support any challenges in your health and life, exploring variations for your body’s specific needs. I can answer questions about the Ashtanga or 8-Fold Path, help you create a home practice, give you strategies for stress and anxiety, and be present for you. My approach is to include physical postures, breath awareness and control, meditation, and playing my sound healing instruments.
