CLASSES / WORKSHOPS / RETREATS / TEACHER TRAINING

Therapeutic in nature, alignment focused, and based on the individual needs of students.


So much more than exercise; I offer the physical asana (postures) interwoven with deeper spiritual, philosophical, and energetic teachings. I use deliberate and intelligent sequencing, props (such as blankets and straps), and draw on my experience, and long term study, of a variety of traditions including yoga therapy, movement therapeutics, anatomy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, spiritual psychology, and Theravadin Buddhism.

In my classes students consistently find greater capacity, less pain in their bodies, and a new level in the postures.

My intention is to create a safe and warm space where depth in practice is encouraged. My students appreciate the warm and welcoming container I provide which allows one to dive more fully into the deep experience yoga and meditation provides.

The Ground Beneath Our Feet

Yoga Life Studios, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada  

6pm-8pm (Open to public students ($30) / Participants registered for Yin Weekend Immersion attend free)

This class begins with a series of therapeutic movements done on the floor designed for structural integration. The class then slowly and deliberately leads to standing poses that bring stability and strength to the legs and feet. We'll explore how working the foundation of our poses through the arches of the feet, opening the hips and sacrum, and activating the meridians, creates a deep sense of grounding in our practice.
