Teaching is customized to each student with the goal of helping each student learning where they hold tension, learning how to let go of that tension, how to decompress, & most importantly, how to HOLD on the people & things important in their life & how to LET go of the things that are toxic & holding them back.

Background

I started practicing Yoga in 1994 to help address injury & stress. I have taught over 2,000 hours & this teaching ranges from class sizes of 50 students to just 1.
My classes are based on the class level I am teaching, not on the class name. I never go into a class with a script like many instructors do, classes are executed toward the experience level of the student. Some feed back I have received from my classes are they love the hands on adjustments I give, especially when I'm teaching a Yin class. Students have said my voice is soothing & the flow of the class is smart & fluid. One of my students, Elsie, had a stroke 6 months before starting my class. She was helped in by her husband & an assistant, they would help her get to the floor & help her back up & be there for support. After 2 months of taking my restorative class, she was helping herself to the floor & helping herself stand, she needed no assistance at all. This is what Yoga can do for people if they listen to their body & continue to practice regularly & don't give up, it's life changing.
In addition to Yoga, I am also a climbing instructor, teaching for 24 years with the goal of helping those interested in facing their fear of heights & also those who simply want to climb in some of the prettiest places in the world.
