Yoga

Yoga: to yoke, to connect things together, as in mind and body.

A yoga teacher for over 16 years, I know how to meet you where you are, without judgment. Whether you’re shy about taking a group class, or have specific issues you’d like to address one on one, I can help. I encourage radical self-love, on the mat and off the mat.

Maybe a gentle, restorative class is right for you. Or perhaps you want to push your personal limits in a more athletic, vigorous session. It may be that mindfulness meditation or grounding techniques are what you need right now. The eight limbs of yoga offer many tools in many ways, from deep breathing to focus and concentration to moral observances like non-violence, self-reflection, non-possessiveness, and more, and I am well-versed and qualified to assist you.

My experience is broad, and I have worked with many different people in a variety of settings. From cancer patients to professional athletes to business people and everyone in between, I’ve offered classes at spas, yoga studios, and in corporate environments. You’ll even find me teaching a free class at the public library a couple of times a year, and I work with all ages and stages: kids, teens, adults, and seniors.

Research over the last ten years has shown that yoga is an effective treatment modality for individuals with post-traumatic stress. I specialize in Trauma-Informed Yoga, and feel honored to offer tools to help individuals release themselves from the grip of their past traumas. I have worked with veterans, sexual trauma victims, incarcerated individuals, people with adverse childhood traumas, and more. I teach from a trauma-informed lens in all of my yoga classes, with all populations, as I can never really know what previous experiences my students may bring with them.

Yoga is truly for everyone.

I offer private yoga or mindfulness meditation sessions, as well as group classes and workshops at my private studio space. I work with individuals, small groups, and large groups.

We can work together at my home studio in Orlando, FL, or I can travel to your location in or around Orlando area.

During this time of COVID-19, I am also offering virtual classes via Zoom, so check out my online calendar to see when those are offered and how you can join in.

And you can always watch my yoga videos on my Innerglow Wellness YouTube channel.
