As a yoga teacher my intention is to share my practice, and provide a safe and nurturing environment. I teach a Gentle/Restorative and Moderate Vinyasa flow at Pause. I also teach Yin and Core Flow. My moves are deliberate and intentional, so that no asana is rushed. I pay attention to spinal alignment and I am big on breadth through movement, even the space in between the postures. While I enjoy practicing all asanas, one of my favorite postures is pigeon (YANG) or Swan (YIN). My favorite part of teaching is when I see students deeply connected with their body, mind and spirit. My hearts smiles when they explore new asanas and find ways to open the heart, strengthen the body, and discover what it truly means to be in the present. My favorite time of day for my personal practice is early in the morning, and I love yoga on the beach as the sun rises.
My yoga certification was obtained January 2014 at Kripalu, and I complete a Certificate in Positive Psychology in January 2015. I continue to explore ways to infuse these trainings into my non-profit, charitable work in oral deaf education that has helped over a thousand children, parents and teachers in developing countries and throughout Massachusetts.
