My classes always start with a few minutes to check in with the body, the breath and state of mind, We move through the body, offering opportunities to invite space into sticky spots, strengthen your ability to move efficiently and always honor your pain free range of motion. My intention in the classroom is offer an accessible practice, where you are challenged, but never discouraged.
In my personal practice, my go to practice Vinyasa flow. Vinyasa is movement with breath, in a way that opens the whole body. Lately I’ve been know to sneak in Strength movements by adding resistance bands, or dumbbells. I try to get on the mat daily even if it’s only for 10 minutes of mediation, a few Sun Salutations or Restorative Poses. I love to read, listen to podcasts and get outside. Hope to see you on the mat.
