Teaching Yoga

After daydreaming about teaching yoga for years, I finally pursued and received my 200-Hour Hatha Teacher Yoga certification in January 2024 at Palisades Yoga in North Lake Tahoe. My yoga classes flow through poses and synchronize the breath with movement and music in a playful way that builds physical strength and encourages mindfulness. I love teaching yoga outside where you can feel the warmth of the sun and the cool breeze of the wind on your skin as you practice. I teach with The Courage Project and Tahoe Flow Arts & Fitness.

    27 Jan 2024 Yoga for Joy and Peace This practice was created with you in mind, the being who deserves to feel happy, joyful and at peace without needing any other reason. This 60 minute yoga class begins with a centering meditation, moves you through sun salutation variations, with the intention of cultivating joy; and ends with a restorative practice centered around inner peace, relaxation, happiness. Using the body, breath and mind as a vehicle, this full body practice will guide you through a series of extending, back/forward bending, twisting, and inverted poses with the intention of connecting you with your heart space and inner being. Here, we emphasize poses and modifications of poses that focus on opening the heart to joy and peace.
