“True yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived. Yoga doesn’t care about what you have been; yoga cares about the person you are becoming. Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to be truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied.”
– Aadil Palkhivala
My training in Tradional Hatha Yoga gives my practice and teachings a holistic approach. Classes with me incorporate physical postures (Asana), breathing exercises (Pranayama), positive thinking (Vedanta), meditation (Dhyana), relaxation, and gratitude.
In order to be Sanuk, the mind and body must be in balance. By moving the body while focusing on the breath, we can learn to control and still the mind. Regular practice leads to freeing the body and mind and eliminating negativity from our lives.
I believe Restorative Yoga is one of the most effective practices in finding balance between the two stages of our nervous system: fight-or-flight (Sympathetic Nervous System) and rest-and-digest (Parasympathetic Nervous System). There should be a natural pendulation and equilibrium between the two. However, in today’s fast-paced high-stress world, we often get stuck in fight-or-flight. Restorative Yoga uses many props to assist in holding poses for extended periods of time, allowing the body and mind to completely relax and restore the natural order and balance.
Private sessions can be booked at my in-home studio or in the comfort of your own home.
