I specialize in Restorative, Yin and Hatha Yoga and work primarily with women over the age of 45. My signature program is "Yoga For Osteoporosis". This program helps women reverse Osteoporosis naturally so they can take control of their health without the harsh side effects of pharmaceutical drugs.
I have been practicing yoga since 2004 and earned my certification through the Amrit Yoga Institute, studying with Master Yogi Amrit Desai.
Up until 2013, I thought yoga had minimal benefits and couldn’t I slow down enough to get anything out of it.
After enjoying the intensity of power yoga, I was able to appreciate the wonderful benefits of a calmer yoga practice. Now, my passion lies in Buti Yoga, a blend of power yoga, tribal dance and plyometrics. I wake up craving movement and love starting my day off in a way that brings me alive. It inspires me to show every woman that, above all, self love is the most important gift you can give yourself.
I currently teach Yin yoga and a basic beginners yoga 101 class. The goal in Yin is to alleviate any aches and pains, to balance out their vinyasa (yang) practice and also to educate students on the philosophy of yoga. My beginners class is focused around proper alignment in common poses to build muscle memory and confidence before moving to a more challenging class. I also try and incorporate pranayama because the benefits of focusing on your breath are innumerable and you can do pranayama anytime, whenever you need to calm yourself down.
