The Thinking Body, The Feeling Mind

The style of yoga I teach—The Thinking Body–The Feeling Mind—shares many postures and philosophies with classic hatha yoga. The conscious expression of movement, inner awareness, and purposeful use of breath are key elements of both traditions. I believe the riches that come from a mindful movement practice have great potential to sustain our physical lives and support our spirit. My classes have less intense, repetitive movement than a vinyasa flow class and more choreographed moments than a classic hatha yoga class. Everyone is encouraged to practice with respect for their own body and needs at each session.
