Yoga is the reminder for me that I have arrived in my life. It's easy to get caught up in the past, the future or what is going on around me in the present. When I get on my mat, I am experiencing just this moment.
I am a middle school art teacher. I teach students how to paint, draw, sculpt, etc., but the real work I do is teaching them to think, reflect, experience and express. The time I spend on my mat prepares me for that crucial layer of who I am and what I do. I have had the extraordinary experience of assisting for Becky Small's classes, and consider her, and many of the teachers at Black Crow, mentors. The energy that the Black Crow community blankets me with is what fuels this lovely journey.
My teacher training was through Yoga of Energy Flow with Liz Owens and Daniel Orlansky and I am an Alignment Based Vinyasa teacher. I weave aspects from many kinds of yoga into my teaching.
- All Levels Flow to Music
Vinyasa Flow to Music classes focus on connecting breath to movement through a vigorous, continuous sequence of postures. We stretch and strengthen our body and spirit, and we calm the mind.
We practice heated, not hot yoga. The studio is heated to approximately 80 degrees. The studio will feel comfortably warm, allowing you to safely stretch deeply. You will enjoy a detoxifying sweat from the athletic nature of the yoga. You will leave refreshed and renewed. Classes are set to music and teachers prepare their own playlists. Classes will vary to reflect the unique style and personality of each teacher.
This class is appropriate for all levels of experience, and beginners are always welcome. If you are new to yoga, or if you have an injury or limitation, please let the teacher know, so he/she can offer modifications and give you extra support.
