I teach yoga postures to stretch and work all the major muscle groups of the body. My goal is to use yoga postures as a means to bring awareness to the body, to nourish the body through movement and develop balanced strength & flexibility.
  • breathing
  • standing postures
  • floor postures
  • final relaxation

The one hour classes are designed to generally stretch the whole body. Classes over an hour are designed to spend extra time focusing on a particular area or areas of the body providing a deeper experience. Beginning with where the body is at and focusing on the breath throughout the practice, we do a series of postures that develop strength, flexibility, will, concentration & balance. With a presence of mind, body & spirit we work the muscles of the body as well as the internal organs & systems in the body.

Movement, Awareness, Stillness

Finding inner stillness, having an awareness of breath, feeling how dynamic the breath is in each posture. This is what yoga is about for me. Stretch out your body, connect with spirit through the postures, move towards greater health. Yoga can lead to a stronger and more flexible body. It can calm you and make you feel better. It is an opportunity to learn how to relax completely.

 

If you live here or while you're visiting Taos,
