CLASSES & WORKSHOPS

Weekly Class Schedule

Come prepared to breathe, sweat, and LAUGH together. Each class is a dynamic event, a celebration that nurtures your personal practice and roots you deep in the practice. You’ll find the beats and vibrations of bhakti musicians and hip-hop artists, a practice inspired by the full moon or the 5 elements, a candlelit evening flow or a sunlit morning wake-up call. So wherever you are, however you are, whatever day of the week, show up and bring it.

What are the benefits of taking private courses?

I teach yoga because I believe in its power to heal and to transform and  I have seen that  yoga can offer these gifts to anyone, no matter where they are starting from. During a private session you are receiving the practice that is in line with the direct experience of yoga as it was passed down from teacher to student. One can focus and hone in on being present to the experience, refine their own practice and have time heal in a slower setting rather than a 60 minute group class, you receive my undivided attention to every one of your details. Anatomy and physiology are explored as well bio-mechanical habits that we all get caught in (slouching, tense shoulders, hunching over, folding in rather than lifting up and out).

Weekly Class Schedule. Why you will LOVE practicing with me during a one to one session?

To me yoga is a path of both self empowerment and deep humility, staying present, focused and dynamic. You will benefit from practicing with me all sequences are tailor-made to you specifically, they are smart, strong, steady and focused. We will work together to reach that point where you are flowing in and out of asana dynamically  accessing the mega benefits of each asana, we can take time to talk it out and explanations are textured so you really KNOW what you’re doing; allowing you to remain present to your moments on the mat and your breath. Added to that years spent on the mat refining and honing my skill my private classes are smart, strong, present, focused and dynamic. Plus there is homework!

How you feel will after working with me?

You will start to feel the benefits immediately, a stronger connection to your heart (emotions) and awareness of your body. Better breath movement, consciousness, you become more mindful of yourself and your presence to others moving from the actor to the witness ( the reactionary to observer). In terms of bio mechanical habits your posture will change and your movements in and out of asana will be steadier, as will your everyday movements. You’ll have a clearer understanding of why we practice asana first and meditation after, how to meditate and use mantra plus what they mean. Pranayama which will affect all streams of your life from work to home to family by being present to you. There will be clarity that creeps up on you when you’re not looking and a sense of being skill in action. Now doesn’t everyone want to feel this way?

Private classes consist of 3 x 90 minute classes which entail a 10-20 minute discussion on your intentions for your privates , the practice, followed by Pranayama breathing and meditation. I offer 3 x 90 minute sessions with handouts and homework ; Remember this is one to one instruction tailor-made to you specifically an investment in well-being and self care.

YIN YOGA

 

Yin is a relaxed, contemplative practice of long-held passive stretches targeting the connective tissues of the body. It is the ideal compliment to more muscular forms of yoga. Because of its emphasis on the hips, thighs, pelvis and lower spine, it is hugely beneficial for releasing tension and improving flexibility and agility in athletes, dancers, as well as office workers who sit for long periods. Level of effort: Unwind;

Le Yin yoga est une pratique contemplative détendue d’étirements passifs tenus longtemps, faisant travailler les tissus conjonctifs du corps. Il est le complément idéal à des formes plus musclées de yoga. En raison de l’accent mis sur les hanches, les cuisses, le bassin et la colonne vertébrale inférieure, il est extrêmement bénéfique pour libérer les tensions et améliorer la flexibilité et l’agilité des athlètes, danseurs, ainsi que des employés de bureau qui restent assis pendant de longues périodes.Niveau d’effort: Détente

Workshops & Intensives

I teach a number of workshops throughout the year ranging from 2 hour classes/intensives, pop up yoga practices and entire weekend immersions allowing anyone to go deeper and explore yoga within their relationship to practice. Topics often include a blend of intermediate asana practice, myth inspired teachings, lectures, seasonal wisdom practices, or teacher specific offerings.
