This is a safe space for exploration, for connection, for grace and love and beauty and, best of all, for bravery.
This is a space for dreams to come true.
This is a space for me. And this is a space for you.
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.
