My Teaching Style...
I emphasize alignment (where to put and what to do with your body parts) and breath patterns during our yoga sessions together.
My motto is:
ALIGN THE BODY, ALIGN THE MIND.
When you're constantly being mindful of how your body should enter, hold, and exit each yoga pose-your mind has no space to occupy distracting thoughts.
Alignment + Mindful Breath =
Forgetting about external distractions, ridding yourself of what's no longer needed, and coming into the present moment. You begin develop harmony of the mind and body and create space within yourself. Yoga helps cultivate the clarity you need to make empowered decisions to maximize your Health and Wellness.
Frequently I will incorporate props into our Yoga Class. I believe they help make yoga poses more accessible to all yoga practitioners and help you remain safe in your yoga practice.

- yoga blocks (thick books will do)
- yoga strap (or a belt or scarf or rolled up towel)
