I’ve practiced yoga since childhood when my dad introduced it to our family. In college, I began practicing on my own. I decided to teach yoga because yoga offered me so many benefits. I was able to be calm during chaotic moments. It kept me grounded as a single parent raising a teenager. It helped me be in touch with my own strength and peace in a high stress work environment. I also experienced greater flexibility. I wanted to share those benefits with people who were close to me.
I teach gentle yoga because we live in a busy world and gentle yoga creates time to slow down the body and mind in order to take care of oneself. My adult yoga practice involves gentle stretching, conscious breathing and meditation. My Children’s yoga enhances creativity, self-confidence, and engages each child in fun movements. I combine story sequences with yoga poses, song, games and mindfulness. Children’s yoga ends with some short relaxation to bring a experience of calm.
I donate my time to lead yoga at Tikkun Farm because the first time I visited I felt at home. It’s a beautiful place, I love the vision of the farm. I’m thankful to be part of the healing offered to the community and the lives of people who come here. You can feel the healing energy when you arrive. Teaching yoga here has helped me realize this is how I want to participate in Tikkun Olam– the ongoing repairing of the word.
In addition to leading yoga at Tikkun Farm, I offer individual and family classes. I look forward to offering yoga in other learning environments like schools and preschools.
