I'm a soul seeker on a quest to explore the connection between mind, body, and spirit. Having discovered yoga in 2000, I immediately became enchanted with the ease in my body and calmness and serenity in my mind. As I discovered my soul path, Yoga became my trusted companion.
I teach Yin Yoga which brings unique physical, energetic, and emotional releasing and clearing benefits. Poses are held for extended periods to lubricate joints and tissues, to practice mindfulness, and to cultivate chi flow in the body. It is often felt like a needle-less acupuncture session.
Yoga has helped me to explore my inner workings and has helped me wake up to see who I truly am. It's not always easy but it's real and I feel alive. I wish the same for you my friend.

“Smartphones are ruining our posture. And bad posture doesn’t just mean a stiff neck. It can hurt us in insidious psychological ways”- New York Times
“If we can train ourselves through meditation to be more open and more accepting toward the wild arc of our experience, we can become more settled and relaxed amid whatever life brings us” - Pema Chodron, How to Meditate

In person classes paused during the lockdown while Yoga Tree, Valencia in SF is closed.
My classes are deliciously grounding and calming to help you unwind. We breathe deeply together and gently open the pathways of the subtle body through Yin Yoga (long held poses) to emerge more balanced during these difficult times.
I also weave in the practices of InnerYoga to create awareness, kindness and ease and Jin Shin Jyutsu® to balance the energetic body.
All levels welcome.
Please bring 1-2 blankets, a bolster or 2 cushions from your couch.
Monday 8-9.15pm PT
