My approach to yoga is enriched by 20 years of practicing the Gourasana Meditation Practice, a dynamic meditation for this age and time that’s done with music and with the freedom to move the body in states of deep meditation. The transformational, healing energy inherent in this meditation infuses my teaching and benefits both the body and the heart during our sessions.
Yoga’s been one of the biggest blessings in my life, and I’ve great passion to share it. Every class is a journey of self-discovery, challenge, joy, and deep calm. I look forward to exploring yoga with you!
