I teach gentle yoga to people who think they can’t do yoga.
I am a Yoga Alliance RYT200 instructor living in Brooklyn NYC who studies in the lineage of TKV Desikachar. Desikachar taught that yoga should be tailored to the individual:
“If we respect each person individually, it naturally means we will always start from where each person currently is. The starting point is never the teacher’s needs but those of the student. This requires many different approaches; there is not just one approach for everybody… it is not that the person needs to accommodate him- or herself to yoga, but rather the yoga practice must be tailored to fit each person. ”
The gentle style of yoga I teach is especially suited to people who have never exercised before, those with obesity issues, and seniors. I am also trained in Yin Yoga, and I am a Chartered Herbalist (Dominion Herbal College, Canada).

As I enjoy spinning, dyeing, and weaving, I also offer yoga sessions for counteracting the effects of crafting: poor posture, prolonged sitting, and stressed back and neck muscles. Click here for a sample class of the yoga sessions I taught at the Mid Atlantic Fiber Conference 2019.
As a result of Covid19, I now offer online Zoom classes for individuals or groups.
