I began Yoga practice and training in 1993, exploring a variety of disciplines such as Ashtanga-vinyasa, Iyengar, Shadow, Therapeutic, and Vinyasa. While pursuing my studies, I lived in San Francisco, London, and New York City, where I began teaching in 2008 and became an Experienced-Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance. I offer a Breath-Centered Yoga practice for the individual, based on the teachings of T. Krishnamacharya and his son TKV Desikachar, and the teachings of Mark Whitwell. It is with a profound passion that I offer the teachings and practice, clarifying its relevance of ancient wisdom to contemporary life.
My Breath-Centered Yoga offering is an expression of Hatha Yoga; the yoga that acknowledges the union of two energies of Ha Tha, sun/moon, male/female, right/left, below/above, back/front, exhalation/inhalation, all merging into the center of the body, the heart. Yoga postures are very effective for maintaining and restoring one’s physical health, but the true power of Yoga lies in its capacity to lasting happiness and inner freedom through the practice of self-inquiry.
