I was introduced to yoga on my first trip to India in 1996. Ashtanga Yoga was my passion for many years, the beauty and intensity of this practice was what my body and mind seemed to crave. Four babies later, my body and mind both crave something different. Today my passion is yoga in general, just being in my body, connecting to my breath and slowing down. I love Yin Yoga – I really love the stillness that comes during practice, the connectedness that is only possible through that stillness, the peace and serenity that you can reach when you aren’t living in the mind.
Connecting to the present moment through my practice is one of my most treasured and greatest gifts. This is a place that I teach from, as, in a sense, it saved me. Letting go of the past, not worrying about the future, but being right here, right now, in this moment.
