Yoga For All
Flow is the natural state of being. It is the continuous expansion and contraction of body, breath, and heart.
My teaching is inspired by moving with the wise rhythm of the inner body and softening into its strength. Classes consist of gentle movement into stillness or an intense movement rooted in strength and presence.
When you’re on the mat, invite yourself to be curious and elevate the natural intelligence of your body.
All Levels and Slow Flow Yoga
Students coordinate movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next. Classes are appropriate for beginners to advanced students.
While you’re in the final resting post, Savasana, we play crystal sound bowls and other instruments to deepen your relaxation and open your heart.
What to expect in all-levels yoga? Teachers instruct with a mindset that students are here to practice honestly with respect for their ever-changing bodies. Students are capable of receiving a level of instruction appropriate to their physical needs.
Slow flow classes guide students through a practice focusing on being present, tuning into flow and deepening the breath. By holding longer poses, slow flow yoga shifts the mind and heart into balance and creates a state of peace and calm. After a slow flow class, it is not uncommon to experience relaxation and a restful night’s sleep!
Do you know why you “feel” better after a yoga class? Yoga is more than a physical practice, it is a spiritual experience. As you grow with yoga, you’ll start to notice how much you crave a calm mind, healthy body and open heart. You’ll also become aware of what you’re like when you haven’t been to a class in a few days…cranky, out of sorts and a feeling that something is missing from your life!
Personal breakthroughs are a common side effect of yoga. Do you feel stuck or alone? Are you afraid of making the wrong choice with a relationship or job?

Taking general yoga classes at a studio is only one way of enjoying the benefits of yoga. However, yoga becomes a deeper experience when it is applied to your specific needs.
Do you struggle with shoulder, back or knee pain? Are you working through a stressful time?
Centered on you and your schedule, private yoga classes allow beginners and advanced students to work on poses and stretches to ease into the body with proper alignment and personalized adjustments/modifications in safe ways.
What does All Levels Yoga mean?
Yoga classes begin with a centering and a short meditation. The asanas (poses) awaken the body, increase the heart rate, and focuses the mind. Classes typically end with deep relaxation called Savasana or Resting Pose.
Classes may consist of playing music, chanting, or sharing an inspiring passage or poem to light up the heart. All levels can attend this class, and even the experienced student can find challenges by going deeper into the principles of the poses.
On this level all the asanas are explained in detail and adjustments are made. There is a focus on working with technique, basic poses, strength, and flexibility.
What is Vinyassa?
Weave physical movement, strength-building poses, and rhythmic breathing with an invigorating flow to open the body, mind, and heart. Flow classes introduce planks, twists, backbends, arm balances, and inversions. The pace is set at slow to moderate.
