Embracing the aspect of "Ayama" or "expansion" has become the heart of both my personal practice and the roots from which my teaching pours forth. To practice yoga is to surrender, allowing opening and depth through a conscious letting go, over and over, while anchoring deeply to the conscious movement of the river of breath through the body.
Sharing the practice of yoga with others is an emergence of a passion that blossomed in my life some 25 years ago. After teaching Bikram yoga for several years, I was drawn to expand my awareness of yoga to include the practices of pranayama (expansion of life force) , the shatkarmas (yogic cleansing), yoga nidra (yoga sleep, a guided, mindful mediation) and became a certified teacher in the tradition of Hatha Yoga, following the the path of ... including studying with Rama Vernon, founder of Yoga Journal and ... and Shrahda Sagar, sinyasan and owner and founder of 7 Centers School of Yoga, where I received my certification and further apprenticeships. My exploration and practice Vipasana mediation over the past 25 years, weaves itself into the classes I share with my students. More than anything, I teach through the harnessed collective energy the students bring to each class, allowing them unfold with each shared breath we take.
