My Yoga education includes training and Study with Taylor and Phillipe Wells, Sara Meeks, Gurmukh, Ana Forrest, David Vendetti, Shiva Rea, Jennifer Yarro (Thai Massage) and deeper anatomy and movement study with Julie Gudmestad, and Doug Keller. I was certified with the Yoga Alliance since shortly after teaching, currently an E.R.Y.T (experienced yoga teacher), I am now nearly complete with my 500 hour certification with Daniel Orlansky (of Meridian Yoga Flow). As a Reiki Master and teacher, I bring energy work into the classroom (perhaps from a distance if not on contact). I also now practice Thai Yoga Massage and LOVE the beautiful massage dance of energy, compression, immense healing, and lazy-mans-yoga that it is. During Thai Yoga Massage, I practice Metta (loving kindness energy work - standard for Thai Yoga Massage) and Reiki. Recently certified in Diving Sleep Yoga Nidra (Jennifer Reis), I also offer deeper healing services.
Ground, Glow, Shine from your inner voice, and therefore co-create. If not all of the above, then one. If not in one day - then maybe sooner than you ever thought. However it is ALL attainable with continued regular visits to that little rectangle on the floor.
- All Levels Flow to Music
- 11.24.17 Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra
Vinyasa Flow yoga to music is a vigorous, athletic style of yoga. We focus on connecting breath to movement through a continuous sequence of postures. We stretch and strengthen our body, mind, and spirit!
We practice heated, not hot yoga. The studio is heated to approximately 80-85 degrees. It will feel comfortably warm, allowing you to safely stretch deeply, and you'll sweat from the athletic nature of the yoga. You'll leave feeling refreshed and renewed.
Classes are set to music and teachers prepare their own playlists to reflect their unique styles.
Done mostly lying down, this is an enjoyable and easy practice. Yoga Nidra is more accessible than most forms of yoga since all it requires is to lie down and listen.
In Yoga Nidra, the state we feel is deep relaxation, similar to that deep relaxed feeling of acupuncture or hypnosis.... our theta waves are engaged. In this state, our parasympathetic nervous system switches on (our relaxation response), and that is where true healing occurs. We can create a healing affirmation, and because it is done without any of our normal chatter to interfere, the seed is truly planted.
In this Yoga Nidra class there will be a few minutes to explain our koshas and how we leave our superficial layers to go deep into our core being. Then there will be a little movement to ground us, followed by deep meditation while lying down (some may chose to sit in order to not fall asleep).
Pack your bags to take a vacation inward. Your body, mind, and spirit will thank you!
Please note for Yoga Nidra: in addition to your yoga mat, bring a blanket or large towel with you to class.
