To live and experience Yoga you don't have to hide out in a cave somewhere in the himalayas or follow the usual clichés. A deep practice is also possible in our urban environment. That which we are looking for is already there—we only have to learn to look closely. I believe you can only share what you have experienced yourself. The foundation of my teaching is my own intense practice.
I am an enthusiastic vinyasa yoga teacher, because I see a parallel between our everyday lives and the flow of this practice. We are immediately confronted with our strengths and weakenesses, and learn in the truest sense of the word to deal with ourselves better.

Bird is the Word. What’s in a name? Many of the yoga poses we know and love have Sanskrit names that relate to nature—animals, plants, rock formations. Sometimes it’s easy to see the correspondence between the shape and it’s name—crane pose stands on long skinny arms, the feathered peacock throws it’s proud tail high. The association goes deeper though, the name having more to do with the inherent experience of the pose than just its shape. In this vinyasa class we’ll explore the birdlike qualities of bird poses—feathery lightness, structural integrity between torso and wings, and a piercing gaze.
