I started practicing Yoga in 1984 when I gave birth to my first child. I was looking for a gentle and effective exercise practice that could help me improve flexibility, strength and balance. Yoga gave me the tools I needed to understand and relate to my new body and bought me the union between mind and body that I was looking for.
After many years of practice, I decided to undergo the necessary training to become a yoga instructor. I am a certified yoga teacher with 500 hours training in yoga, pranayama and guided meditation techniques through the "Institute of Holistic Yoga - Satyananda Ashram" in Miami, FL.
I love working with people all ages. And I have several years of experience working with children and families.
My classes are designed for all levels of students and include:
a thorough warm up
awareness of the energy centers (chakras)
asanas that empower and strengthen, and improve alignment and flexibility
inversions and counter-poses
pranayama (breathing exercises)
yoga nidra (psychic sleep) and other meditative techniques
