We all have our own stories. Mine has some twists and turns through a tough childhood and young adult years blurred by frustration, drugs, alcohol, and a near-death brush with cancer, and I credit yoga with helping me to become healthy and opening my eyes to a world of positive opportunities. I’m truly grateful to now be able to share what I’ve learned with others, whether it’s on the mat in my home base of San Francisco, in another location for an immersion or workshop, or through my online yoga platform.
Each class with me has a beat, a vibration, and a pulse. I hand-select each of the songs for my classes, as music can help us deepen our yoga experience. Find your rhythm and connect to your truth.
Connection through Contact – Pre-Festival Immersion: A physical adjustment or assist is a very powerful way to make connection with our students. In this workshop for teachers, we will practice together and then partner off working with each other to practice hands-on approaches in a way that makes your students feel supported, safe, and encouraged to go deeper into their practice. Through this workshop, you will have a deeper understanding of range of motion and when it’s appropriate to assist. You will also learn how to identify prana and apana (lines of energy) within a posture to better assist your students, and become acquainted with the four factors of assisting (familiarity, trust, timing, and student body awareness). You can expect to leave this workshop more confident in your touch with strategies that will help you forge stronger connections with your students. As a bonus, you’ll get to take home an info sheet and video to further study at home.
