Gentle, Restorative, & Yoga Nidra

Are you interested in yoga, but worry it's not right for you? Have you been hesitant to explore yoga in a studio setting? Are you curious about self-acceptance or body positivity, but don't know how to make it real? Join us for Curvy Yoga! We'll explore how to use props and strategies to practice yoga with the body you have today. At the same time, we'll learn how to use mindful inquiry to connect to our bodies and their needs. Through this compassionate approach, you'll develop the tools you need to find a greater sense of connection with your mind, body, and Self. After suffering two decades of body shame, Yoga offered me a path to acceptance and I am eager to share it with others. Beginners welcome, no toe-touching required!

Sunday evening classes are gentle, restorative, and feature Yoga Nidra - or "Yogic Sleep"; a guided meditation. The perfect way to nourish yourself deeply as you ready for the week ahead.

These classes are being offered online via Zoom for now.

Are you interested in trying this Yoga thing, but feel hesitant to join others in a public class for the first time? Do you have a steady practice and are interested in deepening or customizing it to fit your needs? Do you have a personal issue that may need some one on one attention? I can help. I offer compassionate, custom-tailored Yoga in the comfort of your own home. I will bring all the supplies we need. We will need to meet for a 20 minute phone conversation prior to meeting in person so I can understand your needs and prepare accordingly. You will receive a custom written sequence to keep for your personal practice. Ask me about multi-appointment package discounts.

Are you looking for safe companionship and a nourishing yoga practice to carry you through the summer? Feeling pent up and looking for some joyful movement? Join me for the Sun’s Out, Curves Out! summer series! This Curvy Yoga series will be an energizing practice with plenty of cooling postures and pranayama to help balance the Pitta (firey) forces of the summer months.

Curvy Yoga integrates self-acceptance and body positivity through the practice of Yoga. Together, we'll explore how to use props and strategies to practice Yoga with the body you have today. At the same time, you’ll learn how to use mindful inquiry to connect to your body and its needs. Through this compassionate approach, you'll develop the tools you need to find a greater sense of connection with your body and self. Beginners welcome! No toe-touching required.
