I've been studying and practicing yoga for over 20 years. I have a love of teaching gentle yoga and meditation, inviting students to find what works for their personal journey. My overall approach is focused on creating a safe and accessible environment for all while inviting a deep awareness of the mind/body connection.
YOGA FOR RESILIENCE
A Livestream Trauma Sensitive Practice
Free weekly class
The intention for this practice is completely choice based as we find space to connect to our body & our breath exploring options based on this connection and awareness. This will be more of a slow flow type class, pendulating between movement and rest, with a short guided meditation, breath work and perhaps ending in a restorative shape, and an offering of journaling.
With over 20 years of experience, I have a love of teaching and creating an environment for all. My commitment is to lead a practice that adapts to the individual regardless of body type, age, health, and cultural or religious background. My classes are inclusive and accessible for all and led through a trauma sensitive approach. They are completely invitational and choice based, inviting the opportunity for "interoceptive awareness" feeling the body within and for each individual to practice making their own choices based on what is best for them.
Throughout the classes, I integrate meditation and breathwork with an inclusive approach focused on creating a safe and accessible environment. I utilize the healing aspects of meditation while inviting a deep awareness of the mind-body connection. Through several studies it has been shown, that an ongoing meditation practice can help reduce stress levels, help with pain management, improve memory function along with many other benefits. I have also completed Advanced Trauma Sensitive Meditation certification with David Treleaven.
I am a certified reiki practitioner and offer the same healing intentions as yoga and mediation. Reiki is a form of energy healing, suitable for all, and can help enable relaxation and reduce pain. This allows for the body to promote self healing. Because Reiki works in the energy field, it helps bring coherence to all the systems of your body and mind so they can work together in harmony.
