There are 3 ways to work with me
In-Person, Therapeutic Programs
After 13 years full-time in the wellness business, teaching thousands of group classes and individually assisting hundreds of private clients worldwide, I have created my own unique approach to wellness. I draw upon a wide variety of modalities that I have studied extensively in order to create a truly intelligent, inspiring, custom, wellness experience. These unique programs use all of my expertise, experience, and intuition to assist you with a full body retraining program. We move through your entire body finding areas of imbalance, weakness and tightness and then we reprogram your body and mind to move with grace, integration and consciousness. It's in these sessions that the real MAGIC happens! You will learn about your anatomy and feel amazed by your body's brilliance and AWEsome potential. I approach exercise in a holisitic manner and we will focus on creating balance in your body, mind, emotions, spirit and life!
I assist clients in creating a custom #Wellness Tool-Box that consists of a personal program of homework stretches
and strengtheners that assist in preventing & healing injury, maintaining health and living life fully emPOWERed. Depending on the desires of the client we can also dive more deeply into overall health and wellness to include eating wholesome foods, learning to detox the body, and creating lasting self-care routines

This program is ideal for you if you are interested in authentically learning the Pilates Method of Matwork so accurately that you feel confident in practicing it at home
The Pilates Matwork is by far my favorite system of 'core' exercises and is an exceptionally supportive practice for ashtanga practitioners. Most group pilates classes are way too overcrowded with uneducated teachers . . . not this class. I have taught thousands of pilates classes to thousands of students - I can make this stuff fun and educational. This class is gonna rock your world . . . Pilates Style!
Private sessions are my speciality and I highly recommend this option when possible. It is an ideal way for a beginner to learn the Ashtanga method accurately without risk of injury or overwhelm. And it's transformational for students who have started ashtanga, but are in need of 'cleaning' up their practice. Because of my knowledge (straight from the Jois family in India) I can assist you in taking your practice to the next level - physically, mentally, and spiritually. Sessions are 2 hours and you will leave with tons of notes and resources in hand. You can expect radical results! Please call for current pricing and schedule

Led classes are taught in the Sanskrit vinyasa count just like in Mysore, India. Students move thru the poses together. Some knowledge of the series is required, which is why I am offering an introduction workshop before every Led class.

Primary series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga led in the Sanskrit count
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is my own personal, daily yoga practice
It is my love, my passion, my sadhana, my life path. My only Ashtanga yoga teachers have been within the lineage of Shri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India. Laura Spaulding, (Authorized Level II), was my first and primary Ashtanga teacher as I traveled to NYC, Mysore and Goa, India in order to learn the system as accurately as possible under the Jois family (Pattabhi Jois, Saraswati, Manju, and Sharath). Through Guruji's (Pattabhi Jois) enlightened adjustments, conferences, classes, and example I have been inspired to continue this 8-limb path of yoga, incorporating my practice into all parts of my life. Sharath Rangaswamy Jois, Guruji's grandson, has been my teacher since Guruji's passing. He invited me to attend his Authorization Level 1 Teacher Training over the summer of 2010 and has been instructing me through the Intermediate Series of Ashtanga yoga. I have also studied under Noah Williams, Tim Miller, Chuck Miller and David Williams
