What First Drew You to Yoga and Why?
I came to yoga about 7 years ago looking for some flexibility and to maybe relieve some back pain. What I gained was certainly much greater. I ended up finding more about who I actually was. I found a vast and infinite realm called the mind/body connection and it constantly invites me to explore further every day I practice. I started practicing seriously with the hatha yoga Core 26, and so this is where I find myself teaching now. Today I consider this Core 26 series the foundation of my total practice which includes all types of yoga. I hope to share a little of what I have discovered about the very challenging series that tests and strengthens the mind and body.
Teaching Style and Class Styles Taught:
Like any good teacher, I hope to teach with all the amazing insights I’ve witnessed from my greatest teachers. I want my style to be compassionate yet disciplined, rigorous and respectful, present and gracious.
What you love about teaching at SGY:
What I love about teaching yoga at SGY is that I’ve been practicing there for 7 years and I feel close to the community. It is my yoga home.
Silliest thing you've said whilst teaching:
I have not taught many classes yet but I did instruct the students to raise their six arms. And the students were neither spiders nor octopi. And I know they had 8 arms but it still would’ve made more sense.
