May this practice be of service to you on your journey - inside & outside.
As a student of yoga, movement arts and contemplative practice for several decades these disciplines together have supported me personally, professionally and to be of service in the face difficult circumstances. In 2007 I began teacher training and since then have become a Certified GYROTONIC® Trainer and a practitioner of Deep Release Yoga. This is a therapeutic and restorative style of yoga-oriented toward deep, reliable spinal release. It is effective for resolving many difficult conditions as well as for preparing the body and mind for meditation practice.
With reverence for the outdoors, listening and the perennial inquires of life I bring a grounded, respectful sensibility to sessions and the people with whom I work. Sessions are designed for you and are flexible in terms of pacing and scheduling. There are vast and rich places within and without. May we get to know some of this exquisite territory together.
