Hatha flow

We practice asana pranayama, meditation and kriya techniques primarily from the Ghosh and Ashtanga vinyasa systems. Merging breath and movement with strong alignment (form) to create maximum function of asana, ease, stillness and strength in a balancing flow for all systems of the body. Beyond form and function lies meaning/intention and we are called back again and again to investigate and come to know the self. All levels of practice will be honored and postures can be modified to create stability and generate benefits regardless of the degree of "depth" one chooses to explore in each pose. This is strong physical practice that moves energies dynamically. You will sweat, please come hydrated ( room temp at  79-90 this allows for a safe environment in which to explore deeply) You will be challenged and supported in this study of the mind/body/spirit = science of self. These practices can be a wonderful foundation to start a lifetime of daily practice - and tools for health, happiness and - liberation.

In this class we will look at the beginner and intermediate series of the Ghosh system and incorporate many sun salutes and postures from the primary and second Ashtanga vinyasa  series. You will learn how to utilize bandhas - muscle contractions to direct energy flow,  pranayama - techniques to regulate breath and dristi - gaze/focus/concentration/intention.
ultimately a state of meditation/union with the divine
self realization

all levels and bodies welcome  90 min class unless otherwise noted.

Invest in your well being. Support your community
These classes are small and designed to offer detailed attention to the individual in a small group class
maximum class size is 12 students.
I encourage you to develop a steady personal practice. 
Yoga is a Moksha Shastra ( liberation science)

prACTicing the ART of spiritual healing and expression of the full spectrum of life.

I have been guiding yoga classes professionally for over 13 years and have over 25 years of movement/dance /mind body breath training and experience. 

I specialize in finding a regenerative, safe and challenging practice for all to participate and flourish within a group atmosphere. As well, I am available for private lessons. I love to help students develop daily home practice, movement techniques and forms to heal nourish and balance body and mind.
.  I am thankful to ALL my teachers. 

Hatha Yoga prACTice is a discipline.  Entering ones life can be a daily struggle. Rituals help us find that entrance.Yoga can be a means to reconnect you to what is essential. I practice so to be more open, awake and available to my loves and the processes that make me feel alive and free which most often include dance, music, art, nature, family, my dog and cat and working with children.

 I believe relationship between student and teacher or guide is an essential component in learning/training. and dedicated practice. and love. always.A SpiRitual practice can be looked at as a ritual way of entering ones true self.

३ लेग्गेद दोग

Bunny loves happy puppy pose!

About 3Legged Dog .....

Bunny was my faithful companion of 13+ years. In 2007 she was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma( bone cancer) and underwent surgery to remove her front leg.
Her healing journey, her courageous heart, her unwavering spirit and her physical grace have been a constant inspiration and motivation for my yoga practice. I am continually learning from her ability to remain steady and experience the simple joys of being alive on this earth in the present moment as well as her non attachment to that which no longer serves.
Just a couple months before her 14th birthday and nearly 7 years as a tripod/cancer survivor Bunny was laid to rest in August of 2013, her body could no longer sustain her but her spirit continues to shine and uplift.
