I teach an intuitive vinyasa krama yoga class, with special awareness on sequencing. I focus on alignment and moving the body in high vibrational lines of energy, keeping the practice safe with many options for modifications – allowing the practice to serve our needs each day – present and aware. In my classes students work on both flexibility and strength, as well as the cultivation of prana shakti. Moving energy through the body by not only working the physical aspects of the practice but also by connecting with the subtle body and finding stillness in motion. Yoga is a practice of radical acceptance.
