MY TEACHING METHOD
If I had to sum up what style of yoga I teach in one sentence it would be, "Simple stuff, done really well, based on who's in front of me."
My priority is people, not yoga.
I am not a yoga teacher in the traditional sense that I operate from a specific style or lineage. Yoga is at its core a practice of revealing and changing unhealthy habits in body and mind. My experience has been that there is no one way to accomplish this and that it looks a little different for everyone. I am continually pulling apart and putting back together the tools I have gathered over the past decade and a half in order to make them applicable to those I teach. I am always learning and relearning- often from contradictory sources. The result is a creative and responsive style of teaching informed by what I see happening moment to moment in the bodies and minds in front of me. Most postures and movements I use are technically simple with modifications as a rule rather than an exception. I endeavor to create a space where a person is free to practice as hard or as gentle as they need to on any given day. My classes primarily draw on the work of David Emerson, Leslie Kaminoff, Brea Johnson, Paul Grilley, Catherine Monroe, and Katy Bowman.
