Certified Yoga Instructor
I have been teaching yoga and meditation for ten fulfilling years. Being of service to others and helping them achieve their physical and mental health goals is my intention for teaching.
I experience the benefits of yoga and meditation throughout my own daily practice. Personally reaping these rewards drives me further to share these techniques with others. I have a deep understanding of the struggles we all face throughout our lives and therefore an even deeper appreciation for remedying the debris of those struggles, namely stress, anxiety, and tension, that we all hold in our bodies and minds.
Taking a time out from the busy-ness of our lives of doing to focus on being with our bodies and minds in this moment, just as they are, is vital to our health and wellbeing. In my classes we will move, sit, stretch and accept where we are at. Paradoxically it is from this complete acceptance that change can blossom. I am also a certified Mindfulness Practitioner and I bring a solid foundation of evidence-based skills, techniques, and knowledge to my teaching.
”Yoga is not a work-out, it is a work-in. And this is the point of spiritual practice; to make us teachable; to open up our hearts and focus our awareness so that we can know what we already know and be who we already are.” — Rolf Gates

Mindfulness Meditation Classes
I’ve been teaching meditation for over a decade, which stemmed from the roots that my Grandmother nourished in my youth, teaching me a conscious and curious approach to Life and to Self. I also teach Mindfulness Courses, assisting in the inner evolution of a person’s most sacred space… within. Find yourself in an evolving flow of curiosity and wonder as we explore Mindfulness and Meditation together. Let’s also bring importance to educating ourselves with enjoyable ways that we can nourish our own inner gardens, creating sacred ways to live and to thrive all the days of our lives.
The techniques learned in a Mindful Meditation class teach us important ways to be proactive in maintaining our own mental health. Learning and practicing these skills have the capacity to bring about a life of more understanding, depth, purpose, and acceptance, improving relationships with both Self and others.
We always have access to this moment. And this moment truly matters.
In our Mindful Meditation Class we will meet weekly to explore a meditation experience together. The classes are guided and incorporate gentle movement in the beginning in order to connect more deeply with our bodies, an effective tool that we will explore in depth. Our class also involves a stillness portion, where I will guide us through a meditation visualization to explore our inner worlds.
These classes take place online, which will help us create a safe space in our own homes to practice meditation. Creating this weekly habit, within our own homes, will help us live our practice, bringing this mindful focus more fully into our lives. The best way to take care of our future is to take care of this present moment. I look forward to meditating with you.
Classes run most Thursday evenings virtually at 7pm for 30 minutes. The cost is $45 per month or $20 a session. Your first session is FREE so that you can try it out before you commit to the weekly sessions.
