My personal practice and the direction I am following in beginning my teaching; is Hatha Yoga. Much of the focus is on the gentle, restorative and supportive nature of the postures, the benefits of focused breath, meditation and Vedic aspects to modern lifestyle. Encouraging the functional properties of posture for each individuals unique body. Learning postural modifications to personal body type and to utilize props, chairs, wall or other support. Depending on the class style I will also invite basic Vedic Chanting and Mantra to the asana practice.

I come to My Yoga from Trauma, in 2003 a 15’ fall from a ladder broke parts of my cervical spine and herniated a combination of 8 discs in my cervical and lumbar spine, I am fused at C3-T1 and L4 -S1. I was allowed by insurance some basic Physical Therapy, the beginning of which saved me. Subsequently, I have spent over 12 years in Western Care and on prescription medication for pain with no prognosis or outlook for improvement and no support network. With great challenge, a great amount of work, and a rediscovered faith in myself, I have been fortunate to begin learning and to utilize the Yogic and Ayurvedic Lifestyle to find greater faith, lasting health, a sense of control and strength in my life, as well as learning to control the varied aspects of chronic pain and immobility.
