Welcome to my yoga sanctuary. This is a place where you can cultivate a well lived life through Yoga and Ayurveda restorative practices and Radical Self Care.
About me and the way I work
In the Yoga I share, I teach others how to find and use their own tools such as awareness of movement, breath, sensation and thought to move beyond this denser place of mental clutter, belief, judgment and opinion to a deeper, more peaceful and lighter sense of ‘I’. It is from this place where we learn to navigate through our personal selves in a more authentic way, birthing our ‘Yes’, and generously sharing this authenticity in our community.
You can work with me privately, in classes, or by attending a variety of experiential courses, workshops and retreats where I share these tools. There are several ways to work with me in the coming year:
- Weekly small yoga classes, series-only, no drop-ins
- One-to-one private sessions (yoga poses, alignment, breathing, energy work, meditation, coaching to help shift/widen perspective)
- Radical Self Care Sessions monthly workshops
- 250+ hour foundational yoga training 2020-2021

Weekly Class Series Descriptions
Level 1 – Back Care, Gentle/Restorative, Active/Chair: Level 1 is a more accessible class for those with mobility issues or who prefer a more gentle and relaxing style of yoga.
These classes generally start with a centering meditation, gentle movement for joint mobility and then move into the active practice. In the Friday class, we use a chair for part of the class for seated poses as well as standing poses. In the Back Care class, you are welcome to use a chair if you wish as an option. In Thursday’s back care class, we will focus on caring for the back by understanding the structure of the back, strengthening the musculature and working with awareness.
In the Gentle/Restorative classes on Tuesday, you can expect a deeper practice with long-hold restorative yoga poses using bolsters and blankets. These poses support gentle opening and deep relaxation.
Level 1.5 & 2: These classes starts seated with gentle, warm-up style movement to release fascia, mobilize the joints and movement in a present and embodied way. Classes may include long hold yin yoga poses, use of tennis balls and foam rollers, and complex restorative pose setup. You will need to have joint mobility and able to work with a variety of props for pose setups. Embodied Movement refers to moving mindfully, slowly, from a place of deep awareness and skill – the journey of the pose is the point, not the final pose or stretch.

I recommend 1-3 private sessions with me before joining a class series if you are new to yoga (or one of my beginner series offered occasionally). This will help me guide you to the right decision in joining a class as well as know your goals and needs for yoga.
