To live completely, wholly, every day as if it were a new loveliness, there must be dying to everything of yesterday, otherwise you live mechanically, and a mechanical mind can never know what love is or what freedom is.

Class Schedule

YOGA: ONE-ON-ONE

      Does your practice feel uninspired lately? Or perhaps you feel you may not be receiving the full potential of your yoga practice? Private sessions can help deepen your practice. I will guide you in this process by providing hands-on adjustments, visual body-mapping, more nuanced technique in breathwork, and perhaps spiritual inspiration or support.

      Depending on your current needs, I can customize a series of yoga therapeutic classes to optimize your health, reduce your reaction to stress, deepen your understanding of the yoga sutras and principles of alignment, and enliven your prana through breathwork.

      Private lessons are offered at a studio location or at your home or office. I also offer Corporate classes and Private Yoga parties. Below is the price breakdown. Please note, there is a 24 hour cancellation policy. Charges apply for all sessions cancelled within 24 hours of the scheduled appointment.
