My Teaching Philosophy:
I love to feel the shape I’m making with my body and so, in my classes, we stay and explore the pose before moving on to the next. That’s why I call some of my classes “slow flow.” I believe perfect alignment is about aesthetics. I focus on alignment principles that keep you safe, not pretty. I believe we are already over-stimulated by our lives and so, when I use music, it layers into the practice – somewhere in the back of the brain, almost unnoticed. I try not to talk too much (although sometimes I don’t succeed). I want you to feel the practice in your body and in your soul. And I hope my teaching offers space for that to happen.
My current schedule:
Samyama Yoga Studio, 2995 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto
Drop-in classes are available at Samyama but don’t forget to ask about our Bay Area Bhakti Special for individuals traveling more than 15 miles. We also have a Good Neighbor Special for those who live nearby. Discounts are also offered via the “green” ticket if you bike or take public transportation to the studio.
Beginning Tuesday, January 14th: Gentle Flow every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30-11 AM. Alignment informed, this practice encourages students to discover their full-expression of each shape through exploration, stillness, patience and, most of all, listening to the body.
Subud House, 330 Melville Avenue, Palo Alto
Join us each Monday morning from 9-10 AM for a gentle flow that gets the blood moving, the joints warm and the heart beating. Suitable for beginning and intermediate students. We’re on the second floor of Subud, in a ‘gently distressed’ space. Please bring a mat and props. $20 drop-in; series payments available.
Individualized Small Group and Private Practices
As a C-IAYT yoga therapist I am trained to support your healing journey. We can work together to reduce stress and anxiety or to help you build a personal practice to ease chronic pain. Sessions take place at Samyama, in their private studio on the second floor. An elevator is available. Ring Samyama at 650-320-9262 for more information.
