Traditional Yoga

Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice


The word yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj, meaning “to yoke,” or “to unite.” The practice of yoga is intended to create this union, this bond between our head, heart, body, spirit and soul. It also allows our inner world to meet our outer world. 


There are many theories as to where Yoga originated. The first recorded systemization of Yoga was introduced by an Indian sage, named Patanjali, in his Yoga Sutras, around 400 C.E. The practice was, in fact, handed down from teacher to student, long before this text arose. Traditionally, this was a one-to-one experience.


Since Yoga became popular in the West in the 20th century, group classes as well as many different interpretations and styles, have become the norm.

The way I teach is quite different than what you'll find in a modern day yoga class. I often encourage longer holds, flowing at your own pace, with your own breath. That's the fundamental, therapeutic approach.

Intensity is in the eye of the beholder. For some, longer holds are more intense, others slower paced classes are, some find a faster pace more challenging. One is not better than the other, they're just different options. Remember faster, hotter, stronger, longer is not always better. Every bodies body is different and every day your body is different. Honor your body, every damn day.

Yoga with Props

Class Styles


Syncing breath with movement


In this class we build heat, sweat, strength and flexibility. Vinyasa Flow's range  in pace from Slow Flow, Slow Burn to Power Flow

Rhythmic movement quiets the mind and reduces depression

Supports a healthy metabolism, posture & lifestyle

Encourages cardiovascular health


"Deep, stretchy" Yoga


In Yin, we hold poses for anywhere from 3-5+ minutes to target both the deep muscles and the fascial system throughout the whole body

Increases circulation in the joints and improves flexibility

Releases emotional blockages that hide in our tissues

Reduces stress & anxiety


This is all about rest and relaxation


We use the assistance of props to allow our bodies to become fully supported, allowing our muscles, connective tissues to surrender, maybe for the first time ever

Supports parasympathetic nervous system (rest & digest)

Releases fascia and improves joint mobility


Calms the mind & body


Vinyasa Pace

Slow Flow's are classes where movements from one pose to the next are slower and hold times are shorter


These classes are great for those newer to Yoga and also beneficial for those wanting to deepen their practice, by going back to basics

In Slow Burn Classes, we slowly move from one pose to the next and allow for longer hold times of the poses


 This encourages introspection, alignment adjustments and muscle engagement. These classes are great for building strength and flexibility

Power Flow classes are fast paced, often flowing from one pose to the next at the pace of your breath


Example; Exhale - Forward Fold, Inhale - Half Lift, Exhale - Plank into Chatturanga, Inhale - Up Dog, Exhale -Down Dog

Yoga Therapeutics

Yoga is also used as a therapeutic tool for many physical and mental responses


Mind-body research is now demonstrating its effectiveness as a treatment for chronic pain, mental responses, cardiovascular disease and so much more.

Yoga, from a therapeutic perspective, explores a deeper understanding of anatomy, physiology, plus the integration of Eastern & Western methodologies.

While the focus of a yoga teacher is to teach yoga asanas (poses), the focus of a Yoga Therapeutics Specialist is less about teaching yoga asanas (poses) and more about applying specific yoga techniques to help a person reduce symptoms they may be dealing with through a customized Yoga Therapeutics Session
