“Movement is the song of the body.” Vanda Scarevelli
I began my own yoga practice 15 years ago. I had no intention of ever teaching.
Yoga for me was a sacred space. My mat, a private refuge.
Until I was in my thirties I battled bouts of severe depression and anxiety. As a former gymnast, I had no interest in yoga as a performance. I came to my yoga practice desperate. I could already do handstands. What I needed to learn was stillness. Every hour was for redemption purposes and that is how most of my yoga practice continues to be this day.
I teach mostly to new students. My style is based on grace, and my emphasis is on helping my students connect to their breath and tenderly listen and work with their bodies to experience the physical and emotional benefit of the posture. I am not interested in impressive postures for their own sake.
Yoga for me grounds me to the real. Gives me back Presence. Connects me to my breath, my heart, my body, my Why. It is an honor for me to be guide for others to help them encounter the Beauty and Mystery that lingers so close to us all.
I am currently teaching locally in Portland, Or and working on creating online classes too.
