I love teaching both group and private yoga classes to beginners and intermediate students alike.  Even if you feel like you are “too stiff” for yoga, you are in the right place!

 

Private Lessons

If you would prefer to take a private lesson (or a few!) before joining group yoga classes, that’s often a great place to start!  That way, we can adjust poses and breathing practices for your individual needs, abilities, and/or injuries.  You can certainly continue private lessons indefinitely or join a group class.

I do recommend a minimum of four private classes held once a week to begin to develop the practice habit and to begin to see the effects on your body, mind, and spirit.  Private lessons can be scheduled at your convenience between 9 AM and 8 PM Tuesday-Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Private Lesson Investment: $80/class or $299/4-pk.  The 4-pk also includes one month of access to my On Demand practice library. 

 

You might wonder what “kind” of yoga I teach… Well, the simplest answer is that I have been influenced by many teachers over the years, and they have all “spiced” the dish that I offer.

When I say “Hatha” I am referring to movement-based classes that balance the energies of stimulating and energizing with the energies of cooling and soothing.  These classes will also include “Pranayama,” or breathing exercises, specifically chosen to complement the movement practices we are doing.  Meditation will oftentimes be included.

When I say “Restorative” I am referring to posture classes that utilize props in a specific way, in order to minimize sensation in the posture so that you can relax into the shape we are creating without effort.  In these types of classes, it is not uncommon to fall asleep.  We jokingly refer to it as “adult nap time!”  Restorative yoga is not about the “stretch” but about letting go.

When I say “Yin” I am referring to posture classes that focus on applying mild to moderate stress to the joints of the body (as opposed to the muscular tissues specifically), and in so doing, you relax the muscles in the target area, allowing for maintenance of the health and usability of connective tissues and joints. Yin yoga is a wonderful complement to more active practices.

 

Group Classes (Spring 2022):

Saturday 9-10:15 AM – All Levels Hatha Yoga at AlleyCat Yoga

  • An invigorating yet steady flow that will awaken total mind-body connection and ease of motion. All levels welcome. Beginners will be led gently and advanced enthusiasts will be given opportunities to deepen the practice. Each class includes flow sequences as well as time to ‘just be’ in the poses – new focus postures will be explored in each class and then woven into the flow. Focus and attention to proper alignment during flow is taught with specific and individualized attention for each participant, giving you the freedom to do your version of the poses. Conscious breathing and awareness of energy are emphasized throughout.

Sunday 2-3:15 PM – Yin Yoga at AlleyCat (1x/month) 

Sunday 6-7 PM – Yin Yoga at Bellelune Wellness (Book here)

  • Yin Yoga is a complementary yoga practice to the more dynamic and invigorating yoga styles that are predominant today. Some call it the “other half of yoga.” In Yin Yoga, floor postures are held passively for several minutes in order to access a safe and positive ‘stress’ on the deep layers of connective tissue in the body.  Physically, Yin Yoga restores and maintains the natural mobility of the joints, primarily between the navel and the knees.
