Yoga classes now available!
Namaste, beautiful souls! I’ve just returned to the United States after spending 10 weeks abroad in India and Nepal where I immersed myself in the beautiful, powerful world of yoga and in the sights, sounds, and sweet flavors of these truly spectacular places.
In April, 2014, I completed a 200-hour teaching training program in Rishikesh, India with Rishikul Yogshala, a Yoga Alliance accredited yoga school focusing on Ashtanga, Hatha, Kundalini and Nidra yoga disciplines taught in the classical Indian method. In addition to these forms of yogasana, I am experienced in pranayama (breath control), meditation, shat kriya (cleansing), and have studied yoga therapy, philosophy, history, and physical anatomy. I’m blessed to have studied under yoga Master Bipin Baloni and a team of dedicated, experienced teachers.
I then traveled to Pokhara, Nepal with Rishikul Yogshala and assisted in a 200-hour teacher training program. I provided hands-on adjustments in Hatha and Ashtanga yogasana classes, and taught six Sanskrit classes focusing on prayers, mantras, and posture names and translations. I also taught morning drop-in classes to travelers in the area, with each class tailored to the students’ ability and expectations.
Now that I hold a teaching certification, I am excited to bring the skills learned in India back to Michigan where I’ll share my six years of practice with you, my home community. In addition to guided instruction and hands-on adjustment, I will share Indian yogic wisdom and philosophy for living a more peaceful, happy life, and my own thoughts on finding and maintaining your bliss.
In my heart, I know that this practice can provide hope and peace to our communities, and it is my sincere desire to bring lasting, positive change to the area, starting with one body and one soul at a time. Regardless of your physical limitations or financial situation, yoga IS for you. I will do my best to make it accessible and useful for each student who practices with me.
Om shanti, friends. xxoo.
Classes in your area, designed for you!
I am now offering private and small-group yoga instruction in the mid- and northern Michigan areas. Personal instruction is a great option for anyone, regardless of experience or fitness level. Before the class, I will discuss your expectations and needs and design a class specifically for you. If you’d like to do virtual classes via Skype, we can do this, too!
These classes can be held in the comfort and privacy of your own home or workplace. Let’s talk about your needs and our location options! The cost will depend on the number of students and your location.
Regularly scheduled drop-in classes will be available in Midland, Bay City, Mt. Pleasant, Coleman, and Traverse City. I will offer classes for every body and level, ranging from beginners yoga and gentle class options, to intermediate and advanced vinyasa flow classes and a full, 90-minute traditional Ashtanga primary series. I also will include meditation, pranayama, and intentional relaxation into each class to provide a comprehensive session that will work on your mind, body, and spirit to promote health, peace, and happiness.
Dates and locations to come —- let me know if you’re interested and I can schedule these based in part on your schedule! Your first class is only a $5 suggested donation, and then follow-up classes will be offered for a series cost or a drop-in donation (suggested amount depending on length of class and location). I will also be guiding classes at studios in the area (detailed schedule to come), and the cost will vary based on each studio’s policies.
