In my classes, you can expect a balance of steady, invigorating movement and opportunities to stretch, renew and rest. My classes are infused with compassion, empathy, humor and accessible spirituality. We will always end each class with 5–10 minutes of stillness to seal the practice and integrate all that we breathed through.
I call upon the following lineages in my teachings:
Hatha: Hatha is the mother of many yoga lineages we know today. Originating in India thousands of years ago, Hatha combines postures with breathing practices to enliven, enrich and calm our entire system.
Restorative: Restorative yoga intends to exert as little effort as possible. Postures are set up with the help of props such as blankets, blocks and bolsters and are held for several minutes to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system which slows the heart rate and relaxes the body.
Vinyasa: Vinyasa threads yoga poses together, holding each shape for shorter amount of time and linking each movement with the breath.
Yin: Yin yoga was founded on the principle of yin and yang elements in Taoist philosophy from China. It is a more passive practice that targets the connective tissues rather than the muscles. Yin is the more restful, cooling practice in relation to the active, more muscular practice of Vinyasa.
Yoga Nidra: Translated from Sanskrit as “yogic sleep”, yoga nidra is a deep relaxation technique that brings us to that blissful state between sleeping and waking. Much like a guided meditation, yoga nidra is performed laying or sitting comfortably while listening to a gentle set of instructions to soothe and relax your mind and body.
Myofascial release techniques: Also known as MFR, myofascial release targets the fascia, a type of connective tissue that binds together to form what we feel as “knots” in the muscles. This is a safe technique that applies sustained pressure, hands-on or with a therapy ball, to alleviate pain and increase range of motion.
Mindfulness meditation: Arguably the most accessible form of meditation, mindfulness is the ability to be fully present in the moment, without judgement or reactivity. The focus is on awareness— noticing and observing what is going on within and around you without trying to change or analyze it. This form of meditation can be practiced in stillness or while doing everyday activities like feeding your baby or waiting in line at the grocery store.
Integrative healing yoga therapy: Also known as IHYT, this is a form of bodywork that requires little to no effort from the receiver. Performed laying down in comfortable clothing, the practitioner utilizes techniques such as: trigger point therapy (a myofascial release technique), acupressure, traggering, somatic training and passive, assisted stretching to create an optimal environment for deep healing and rejuvenation.
