 I meet students where they are in the moment and teach how to allow your breathe to guide you through a practice, whether it's a vigorous flow or meditative yin/restorative class. I believe breathe and movement combine together to make for a wonderful practice. I love the twists and turns of a yoga journey that remind you to breathe, be present and live in the moment.

Take time to breathe, be present and live in the moment. Allow your breathe to guide you as you flow through a sequence of postures. Find your inner self, increase your strength and flexibility and learn to flow with your breath. Join in the journey, one breath at a time.
