Customized classes for your healing journey.
After years of placing yourself and your needs on the back burner, it is time to make YOU a priority.
Do you want to return to the activities you once loved, but physically cannot enjoy anymore?
Do you want to delve deeper into your own self-awareness and knowledge?
Do you want to be part of a community that is supportive in your journey to better health?
Each of my group classes is specifically tailored to the individual needs of the group; I gently and with compassion help you increase your quality of life through movement.
Class sizes are limited to ensure a potent, powerful, and individualized experience.
What’s holding you back from living the life you want?
I use principles of kinesiology and biomechanics, and tools to improve overall nervous system health to guide you forward in your journey. I foster community, self-empowerment, and self-awareness; I will always respect your limitations while helping you progress. Expect something fun and new in every class, based on individual needs and goals.
I know that you are ready to take control of your health.
But you want to do it in a supportive community among peers, learning from a compassionate teacher who knows the best and gentlest way to guide you and your body.
This is the environment for you. I am the teacher you need.

Restore Your Core
If you are wondering about the health of your pelvic floor, feeling disconnected from your center or feeling off balance in any way, this 6-week session is for you. This unique session will deepen your understanding of your internal structure of support, utilizing breathing techniques, therapeutic exercises and the tools of yoga including poses, mindfulness and meditation to begin to create a sense of a stable center. You will learn, and experience, how a body in balance invokes a core stability that increases energy, decreases pain and improves your overall sense of well being. Each class will end with a guided, deep relaxation to reduce stress and improve vitality. In order to support home practice in between classes, I will be recording each session and providing downloadable audio files. In addition there will be an online hub to ask questions, watch short videos and share any comments you'd like to with your classmates. I will check the site daily and answer questions.

“I'm amazed at how this practice and your class has become such a big part of my life. Because of your fabulous classes and instruction, I'm at a place with my practice that I thought I'd never return to. After practicing for 20 plus years I was so saddened to think I would never be able to attend a yoga class again as my fear of being injured was so great. You’re a life changer!!!!”
“Thank you for the attention to detail and effort you put into each class. I appreciate your passion for instructing with specific advice and guidance on ensuring that movements are done without overextending or creating undo stress or injury. I certainly feel better after the class and find I have enough of a base to carry on my own if need be.”
—Blair, Retired Financial Planner
“Thank you for the workshop as a whole. It’s so refreshing and liberating to feel like I have control over my body and am not a victim of its circumstances. This workshop was exactly what I had hoped for!”
