Within the city of Brahman, which is the body, there is the heart and within the heart there is a little house. This house has the shape of a lotus and within it dwells that which is to be sought after, inquired about and realized. What then, is that which dwells in this little house this lotus of the heart? What is it that must be sought after, inquired about and realized? Even so large is the universe outside, is the universe inside the lotus of the heart. Within it are heaven and earth, the sun, the moon, the lightning and all the stars. Whatever is in the macrocosm is in the microcosm also. "Chandogya Upanishad
Yoga is our union with the divine within and without. I offer a unique interdisciplinary approach that blends the insights of yoga with mindfulness and subtle energy practice and shamanic energy. With focus on alignment, breath and an opening to the inner sense of joy and surrender, I teach in the Hatha Vinyasa style as well as Gentle, Restorative, Ayur-Yoga, Shamanic Yoga and Yin Yoga. I Believe that yoga is a practice that is accessible for everyone, approaching it in a manner that nourishes and honors each individuals unique needs. My intention is one of embodiment, where the practice extends beyond the mat and into ones daily life.
Ayurveda is he sister science to Yoga, an ancient healing system, that assists in bringing us into our state of balance and well being. Ayurveda believes that each individual has a unique body type and constitution that provides us with our strengths and challenges. Utilizing the concept of the 5 elements, earth, water, fire, air and ether, Ayurveda understand that these elements govern our constitution or dosha. The 3 major doshas are Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
