Embodied Vinyasa

Embodied Vinyasa

Embodied Vinyasa is a Vinyasa flow based class that focuses on the breath and mindfully moving with fluidity from one posture to next. In my classes there is always a focus on alignment to guide the practitioner safely through the practice as well as cultivate a sense of embodiment in the practice. This helps the mind to stay present and in this moment while allowing our selves to reconnect to areas of our bodies that we feel disconnected from.
Move to the rhythm of your breath

Embodied Hatha

Embodied Hatha

Embodied Hatha is a Hatha based class that focuses on lovingly inquiring into our patterns and imbalances, which we all hold in our bodies. With mindful awareness over time we can slowly unravel these patterns of tension and imbalances our bodies hold. I deeply believe that as we unravel these patterns in our bodies, we unwind them in our minds and lives too. As we learn to become more integrated in our own bodies, it has been my experience that we become more integrated within our own lives as well. Check out my schedule to see when my classes and workshops are.

Embodied Restorative

Embodied Restorative

Embodied Restorative Yoga is like a hot pool for the soul. A time to come to your mat, let go of doing and achieving and bring the nervous system back into balance. It is when we move out of our fight and flight, or sympathetic nervous system and into the deeply healing rest and digest, or parasympathetic nervous system that we can really feel the healing benefits of Yoga. With long supported holds of postures it is a perfect opportunity to deeply connect to your breath, relax and bring oneself completely into this present moment.

Embodied Cycles

Embodied Cycles

Yoga was traditionally developed for men and predominately practiced by men. This seems pretty hard to believe, as most modern day practitioners are woman. Just walk into any local studio and it predominately will be female bodies you see filling the mats. And though I personally have seen great transformations in my own life through these practices, but have also suffered from burnout because of them. I spent years driving my practice which was set on ancient ideals of how often I should be practicing, and what postures I should be able to achieve. l then realized that the guidelines of getting up early every morning to practice were probably not set by a breast feeding mother! It was after this realization that I started to seek out different teachers- Geeta Iyengar. Tria Peters, Jane Catherine Severn and Sara Avant Stover, but to name a few. These teachers helped me to understand the sacred nature of the feminine, and with their wisdom guiding me, and the wisdom of my own body, I discovered what it meant to practice Yoga from a deeply feminine perspective. A place which nurtured and balanced me as a woman and a mother. A place which honored the cycles of the seasons, the moon, and the greater cycles of our lives. I came to understand the feminine nature is indeed powerful and is exactly what our world needs now. Click here to check out when I will be giving a free talk near you.
