My 2nd Annual DESIRE MAP + YOGA RETREAT is happening this August 17-20 in the forests of Ohiopyle State Park, PA! Let's connect, nourish, and clarify.
My Yoga Style
I am a vinyasa girl at heart (Vinyasa means flow). I'm all about flow and moving with intention and purpose. I believe in listening to your body and moving accordingly. I don't value the "push through it" attitude. We connect breath to movement and activate the whole body as we move energy around us. Meghan Currie is a major inspiration for me as a teacher!
I always start class with gentle stretching to wake up the mind, body, and breath, and I especially love fluid, slower stretches like spinal rolls and seated cat/cow to warm up. However, my love of fluid movement doesn't mean that I don't value core + strength. I find that powerful strength is best built with creative, intentional body movements that include holding + flowing the postures, with the breath acting as a major tool to heat the body and keep you safe.
I recently did a Kundalini Intensive weekend training for women, and have a new love affair with the healing and transforming power of Kundalini. Sat Nam.
Foundational, yet creative. Graceful, yet strong. Mindful, yet sweaty. Yin and Yang.
