"Yoga helps me to come back to and be in the present moment."
I was introduced to yoga in 2005 when I was pregnant with my first child. In 2010 I knew that yoga had to be part of my life and I started taking beginning yoga classes from Heidi Jacobsen for 3 years. In 2013 I was invited to take a class with Nubia Texeira and since then I followed her to every studio taking her classes and workshops. In 2018 I completed a 200 hour teacher training at Bhakti Nova School of Yoga and a 32 hour Chair Yoga teacher training at Sunlight yoga followed by a 20 hour Anatomy of Aging course at Yoga Vista Academy. In 2021 I finished a second training of 300 hour at Bhakti Nova School of Yoga.
My teaching focuses on the yoga practice I enjoys the most, a slow paced beginning level Hatha Yoga, with basic meditation and pranayama (breath work), rooted in Bhakti, devotion practice. My classes will help students to start with very simple and easy poses at a slow pace, then implement the breathing while focusing on alignment. Some mantras and hand mudras that are universal and speak to all of us will also be taught, leaving plenty of space for relaxation and meditation. Similarly, I applies all these principals in my chair yoga sessions, mostly for seniors or individuals with limited mobility.
I also offers semi private and private classes for new students who would like to be introduced to yoga, learn or just practice essential poses, build the foundations, while gaining confidence
