I specialize in adapting yoga for disability,spinal injury, and trauma, by using the principles of yoga to guide my students back into a unified body. Alignment and props are used as a reference for my students to establish boundaries and expand towards them safely and securely.

My approach to Yoga

I specialize in adapting yoga for disability,spinal injury, and trauma by using principles of yoga to guide my students back into a unified body. Alignment and props are used as a reference for my students to establish boundaries and expand towards them safely and securely. My focus is to invite my students into an active healing space where they can feel informed and a sense of agency.
Some of my techniques include teaching through a connecting experience:
Grounding – allows a sense of security and presence of being.
Expansion – helps us to feel more space in and around ourselves bringing a feeling of lightness and joy.
Balance – helps to manage to fluctuating patterns of the world around us while feeling anchored to our center.
Rhythm – establishes a soothing harmony in our bodies calming anxious feelings and can help to lift the weight of depression.
I teach the pose inside out, instead of outside in. This way the essence of what the pose is trying to teach can be experience by all bodies at all levels of ability.
