I took my first yoga class 20 years ago. What hooked me? Savasana (the pose where you lay down at the end). It’s silly but true. It was the first time someone said it was ok to slow down and relax. It was wonderful. This is more relevant today as things only seem to speed up with my my hubby, two kids, 13-year-old beagle, social life, and work. I am more than sure you can relate.
Why do I love my job? Because I hear stories all the time about how a simple move I suggested, or a consistent practice, made a huge difference in someone’s life. Examples include relief from back pain, carpal tunnel, migraines, shoulder issues, and one of my faves--being able to tie a shoe without sitting down. When you feel better physically you feel better mentally, and this leads to overall wellbeing.
This yoga session is for all levels. Never taken a class? No problem. I provide options so you are able to work where you are on any given day. If this means resting while others are moving, perfect. To be advanced in yoga is to do what is right for you and let the rest go. If you have any specific concerns, let me know right away so we can set you up for success from the start. I use a toolkit of action and ease and aim to help you find balance on and off the mat. This is done through awareness, purposeful goals, and showing up.
Yoga is a fun way to do something good for your body while engaging with co-workers in a non-work related way. You can expect to increase strength, flexibility and focus. Mindfulness techniques are sprinkled throughout class and will help you be more present in yoga and life.
While this is my 9th year teaching, I am a forever student as there are always to areas to improve my quality of life. No class is the same. I try to challenge you while making it fun.
