​Yoga care -  Live well, rest well...

I began taking yoga classes in 2012 when a friend had given me a gift certificate to try out Yoga. I found myself driving from Janesville to Madison 5-6 times a week to get more yoga. I learned it was not just stretching poses to improve my physical health. It was challenging to my physical form and changing how I viewed my life with more confidence to make changes and live passionately. I remember driving home after yoga classes feeling both exhilarated and exhausted -- polar opposites. My mind, body and spirit was transforming. I was compelled to learn more about yoga and completed 200hr CYT training with The Studio in 2017.

I learned that yoga is a consciousness in the body to enliven our senses. It prepares us to be aware of polarities like “energizing” and “relaxation”, “rooting down” and “rising up”, “engagement” and “surrender”. I will often reference these opposites to bring greater awareness and interest on the mat with postures and breath work in my classes.

You may hear me singing or snapping to music that moves me. You might get a story or quote to reflect on for the day, or you might hear Sanskrit -- my mantra “ Om Ah Hum Vajra Guru Padma Siddhi Hum , which has been said, when chanted millions of times brings healing relief to those that suffer and brings sight to the blind. I’m pretty sure I’m over a few million.  :)

As a teacher of yoga, it is my wish to prepare students in class to find the experience of exhilaration and exhaustion, to enliven your senses, and to guide you to find consciousness in the body.

Knowing we must die, how then shall we live?
