RYT500 yoga instructor
As a longtime yoga practitioner, I experience the richness a steady yoga practice brings to life. Way back in high school (in the 80s!) I found yoga in a bookshop (thank you Ram Dass) and began practicing.
Flash forward to 2017, I decided to take a deeper dive into yoga and signed up for my first 200 hour teacher training. This was with Sienna Smith. That training opened my eyes to the value of an alignment based yoga. My practice prior to this was rife with poor habits which had left me with a variety of injuries. By paying close attention to my body and developing a sustainable practice, those injuries are mostly healed.
Most recently I have been training with Tias & Surya Little of Prajna Yoga in Santa Fe.I received my 500 hour certification after training with them, as well as, a credential to teach SATYA (more about SATYA here). This training with Prajna is deeply infused with study of the subtle body, the nexus of Dharma and yoga, healing trauma and yoga anatomy.
My teaching is all about creating a healthy, sustainable yoga practice which will benefit students well in to old age.
As far as this Beginner Yoga Workshop goes, our classes will focus on building strength and flexibility in a non-inuring way. Learning good habits right off the bat will yield great results in your ongoing practice. You will be encouraged to pay close attention to how your body feels and how to find a calm mind in the face of physical effort.
