Yoga

I have been practicing yoga for almost a decade and teaching it for almost 5 years. I am a qualified advanced yoga instructor (YTT500) and have hundreds of hours of teaching experience. Yoga has been a powerful tool in my personal path, and I love sharing it with others. I offer classes along the whole yoga spectrum, from relaxing and soothing to powerful and dynamic. Below you will find the yoga classes I can teach. 

Styles of Yoga I Teach

Restorative Yoga

In my restorative yoga classes, I combine my knowledge as a yoga instructor and counselor. I specifically design this practice to promote deep relaxation and equip you with relaxation tools you can use in daily life. My restorative yoga classes incorporate Eastern and evidence-based breathing practices, grounding techniques, psychoeducation, visualization, chanting, mindfulness, guided meditation, and reflection. This creates a nourishing practice which helps busy minds and bodies slow down. Read more about restorative yoga here.

Pranayama and Breath Work

I teach ancient and evidence-based breathing techniques. These techniques help you connect more deeply with your overall state, develop mindfulness, work with your nervous system, and use the breath as a refuge in challenging situations.

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga – Modified Primary Series

This class shortens the traditional 2-hour Primary Series into an accessible yet challenging 75-minute practice. Ashtanga Vinyasa is a holistic system which incorporates all 8 limbs of yoga. It has been referred to as yoga chikitsa or yoga therapy because it cleanses the body, improves posture and strength, and increases mobility in the hips and hamstrings. Unlike vinyasa-style classes, each posture is done one-at-a-time, which allows students to set up properly for each pose and experience it deeply. I value safe, sustainable yoga classes. My ashtanga class is an excellent way to learn safe and proper alignment. 

Vinyasa Yoga

These creatively sequenced mindful movement classes weave together strength, flexibility, and balance. These classes range from gentle to rigorous and can incorporate everything in between. No matter how challenging these classes, they maintain a heart of mindful awareness and are a celebration of movement. 

Rocket Yoga

Rocket Yoga is an upbeat power yoga practice which helps students let loose, have fun, and progress quickly. A dynamic and powerful sequence of up to 99 postures, Rocket yoga provides a space for yogis to experiment with advanced asanas such as inversions and arm balances. In this practice, you will support other students and challenge yourself with a playfsuul attitude!

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga integrates classic yoga postures with Daoist philosophy. As a counterpart to typically “yang” practices such as power, vinyasa, or Ashtanga, Yin yoga allows you to release, let go, stretch deeply, and still the mind. Even though yin yoga requires little physical exertion, it is still a challenging practice. It exposes the body and mind to the discomfort of change through deep stretching. Thus, yin yoga is a practice which not only helps you let go of deeply held tension patterns, but also trains you to relax into discomfort in daily life. Yin yoga is believed to have an impact not only on the muscles but also on the fascia, which is the connective tissue which encases muscles and holds them together.

Self-Myofascial Release

Fascia is connective tissue with many roles, one of which is connecting muscles in the body in long, beautiful trains. Tightness in fascia restricts mobility and function. While a good massage therapist can work on the fascia, this is not accessible or affordable for everyone. Self-help techniques such as foam rolling and acupressure balls or tennis balls can also work on tension by using pressure and time to help your body reorganize and regenerate.
