The word yoga comes from Sanskrit, an ancient language from India, the origin of yoga. It means union of the body, mind and soul. Very often our minds are troublemakers, and without our intervention, the mind dominates our lives. When the mind gets out of control, it wrecks the body, ignores the soul and robs us of many great experiences life has to offer. Yoga as a practice offers a collection of tools designed to keep the mind on a leash, bring the awareness to the body, and explore the unlimited potential of the soul.
Yoga is my passion. I teach it, I practice it, I breath it, and I never stop exploring it. I believe in gentle form of yoga that offers internal peace, emotional endurance, and physical strength.
Ayurveda is a combination of two Sanskrit words Ayu and Veda, and when put together, it means “science of life.” It is a thousands-years-old holistic medicine that comes from India. Basic principals of Ayurveda are a focus on prevention, importance of proper digestion, adjusting the lifestyle according to one's constitution, living in tune with nature (eating seasonal foods), getting enough rest, and taking it easy. Ayurveda offers a lifestyle based on our unique constitution and law of nature that makes healing, prevention, and thriving possible.
As a yoga teacher and a tai chi instructor, I believe “ more” is not “better” and “harder” doesn’t mean “more effective”. Instead I believe mindful, consistent, and personalized practice is what leads to a healthy body and mind. I specialize in the gentle, healing styles of yoga including: Hatha, Restorative, Yin, and Vinyasa. I am available to teach private, individual, or group classes, workshops, special events, and retreats. I offer wellness coaching programs based on Ayurveda with a specific focus on body-mind constitution and personal goals and desires.
