Yoga – Personalized & Weekly Classes
All of my Yogic teachings are deeply influenced by Yoga’s sister, Ayurveda. The posture, breathing, and meditative practices will change according to the seasons and weather patterns as well as to what is going on around us and within us. This is in keeping with harmonizing ourselves with Mother Nature. Come to learn about life and living through the lens of Yoga and Ayurveda. Learn about their guiding principles, gain a deeper understanding of yourself, and be nourished on all levels.

– Kundalini based Yoga and meditation –$60. 5 week session/$15. Drop-in
This ancient system of Yoga was brought to the west by Yoga Bhajan.
Kundalini yoga includes mantras (chants), breathing techniques, postures, mudras (hand positions) and meditation.
All of these components are combined to form a series of “exercises” known as Kriyas.
Although all systems of the body are strengthened, there is a particular emphasis on the subtle body: the chakra system
which directly impacts the nervous and glandular systems.
