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.
RISE: GENTLE FLOW – Monday, Wednesday and Friday 8:15 to 9:15 AM – Shakti Reset is a breath-informed slow flow that strengthens, calms and prepares us for the day.
Subud House, 330 Melville Avenue, Palo Alto
Join us each Thursday morning from 9 to 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. $15 drop-in; series payments available.
