for the Aging Body
Align into Comfort and Ease ~ This all levels class focuses on posture, stability, flexibility and balance, while breathing and relaxing into the asanas (postures). Learn about your bodily habits and correct them for greater ease and movement in everyday life.

Private and Semi-Private Instruction
Private instruction is helpful for students who are new to yoga, want to deepen their practice or want to begin a home practice. Individual instruction is given with attention to alignment and the prevention of injury.
Semi-Private classes are available for up to 6 people. Classes are taught in a traditional hatha yoga style and include 4 limbs of Raja Yoga: Asana (Postures), Pranayama (Breath Control), Dharana (Concentration), Dhyana (Meditation).
“Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.” ~ B.K.S. Iyengar
Yoga Therapy is the facet of Yoga that focuses on health and wellness. In Yoga Therapy traditional Yoga practices are selected, adapted and modified to fit your unique needs with respect to your condition, age, culture, religion, and specific health challenges.
It is not necessary to have any background or knowledge of Yoga prior to beginning Yoga Therapy. The process begins with a thorough description of your present situation at the physical, psychological and spiritual levels. We take into consideration your physical and psychological strengths and weaknesses and look at the role of stress in your life.
As your Yoga Therapist, my role is to assist you in your own self-discovery and journey to wholeness. Together we develop a program addressing your healing needs. That program will involve the four basic steps that lead to deep healing: body awareness, breath awareness, attention focus, and concentration.
