Experienced yoga teacher with advanced training in all eight limbs of yoga and specializing in hatha asana series derived from the original ninety-one postures, three breathing exercises, mudras, bandhas and kriyas of Ghosh yoga. I enjoy inspiring others! I’m energetic and outgoing with an intensive health and wellness education and multiple years of trainings & practical experience.
My first 26&2 yoga class released me from the stress of life, juggling work, raising my beautiful daughter and the stress of recovering from a chronic condition. I fell in love with yoga. The tension melted away, my insomnia has disappeared and all relapses in my condition vanished. The peace and happiness we access on our mats is no accident. A full practice of yoga, including meditation, gently removed these weights from my mind and body. Not only did it remove them, but with time it began to reshape my attitude, diet, views and thoughts.
Once we feel unified and connected, we will access a deep well of joy that does not diminish when shared. Yoga doesn’t just lift our spirits. It lifts our lives. It opens our eyes to the essence of who we are, and that is where I found peace and happiness. This was my experience with the power and patience of yoga. Learning how to walk into my life, transition from okay to peace and happiness. Every time I leave the room I feel absolute happiness and gratitude that I try to bring with me in the rest of my day.
26&2 Yoga consists of 26 postures and two breathing exercises. Each posture is repeated once or twice depending on class length. Drinking water before and after class prevents dehydration, and water breaks are set at specific times so everyone flows through the moves together to achieve mind, body & spirit connection. It’s my favorite series because as I walk out of the room, whether I’m teaching or practicing, I have a natural glow of happiness surrounding me.
Although many write it off as just another exercise-induced dopamine high, yoga goes deeper than that. The mind-body connection create in yoga facilitates changes us at a cellular level. Cellular memory is the idea that our bodies hold our histories. When we weave positive intention into our movements, we are imprinting these thoughts, not only into our minds, but into our bodies. We are effecting change on our mat that will allow for change off our mat.
