What Can Yoga Offer You?
The term “Yoga” is a Sanskrit term translating to “union.” Yoga is a beautiful union between the mind, body, breath and soul. When most people think of Yoga, they think of stretching. Although, some components of a Yoga practice might include postures that facilitate stretching, there is so much more to the practice. Yoga classes often incorporate meditation, breath work and asana (physical postures). There are also many styles of Yoga and I love being able to incorporate different styles into my classes.
The benefits of Yoga are endless. Some of the benefits include, but are in no way limited to, increased strength and mobility, improved joint health, improved posture, reduced stress and anxiety, improved mindfulness, improved breathing and encouragement of your body’s own natural healing processes.
I have been teaching Yoga since 2013 and have been practicing Yoga for over 15 years. I have completed my 200 hour, 500 hour, prenatal, postnatal and couples Yoga teacher trainings. My classes often incorporate aspects from Hatha and Vinyasa styles and I enjoy adding in Restorative and Yin style elements.
When I started practicing Yoga intensely, I injured myself by doing flow after flow and not holding my body correctly. I was attending classes so large that instructors were not able to dedicate time to each individual student and I was pushing my body too hard. Because of this, I am incredibly passionate about teaching beginner students. I want to make sure that you have the knowledge of safety in your postures so that you can attend a class of any size and be confident in your alignment. I don’t want you to learn the hard way like I did! I also know how intimidating it can be to attend a Yoga class and not really know what to expect or what you should be doing. If you are one of these people, I would love to guide you through some beginner classes to help build your confidence and comfort level up.
I absolutely love being able to teach private classes for individuals and couples, or smaller groups, as it allows me to really get to know my students and cater the class to their individual needs. I have a strong focus on safety and encourage you to listen to your body during a class with me. You know your body best.
I also have a special place in my heart for teaching pre and postnatal Yoga. I have worked with babies and children for over 15 years and it bring me so much joy.
I can be very flexible with how I teach private classes. They can take place over Zoom, in a park or in your home. I can offer meditation or breath work focused classes as well.
Yoga is not a substitute for medical treatment but is complementary with many treatments.

Yes! I am happy to meet with you over Zoom or another video call platform to teach your class.
Do your best to ensure that you are well hydrated and fed. However, try not to eat a large meal immediately before your class if possible. You can bring water to class if you would like. Make sure that you have informed me of any injuries, ailments or recent changes in your health. There may be a few props I will ask you to have ready. Don’t worry if you don’t have any fancy yoga props. There are many household objects we can use instead. Please bring your own yoga mat.
You are free to go about your day as per usual. You may experience an increased sense of relaxation and/or newfound energy.
As often as you’d like! Depending on the style and intensity, Yoga is usually safe to practice daily. I’m a firm believer in listening to your body and doing whatever feels right for you. If you are a beginner, I usually recommend a series of 6-8 classes to build confidence in foundational postures.
