I have practiced and found inspiration in a fluid, energized style of vinyasa yoga for 20 years. In 2001 I created and managed One Yoga Center in the Santa Cruz Vets Hall and for 10 years had the great privilege of hosting, and learning from many amazing teachers. I continue to draw inspiration in the Bhakti Flow yoga of Rusty Wells.
For me, yoga is multifaceted, transformative, unpredictable, sometimes difficult and always fascinating. It asks us to strengthen, bend and shape our body, control our breath, till the deepest parts of our hips and core, occasionally defy gravity and love ourselves just as we are. Among it’s many benefits, it reminds us of our infinite divine power – power to shift awareness, to change deeply embedded patterns and discover ourselves anew. My classes are a dynamic blend of strength-building movement, body-opening stillness and ear-expanding music – all designed to simply bring you more fully into a blissful present moment.
When we allow ourselves to breathe awareness into our bodies, something new is revealed in every moment. Layers peel away, barriers dissolve, we feel lighter, stronger and kinder. The sacred benefits of the practice are awakened. And we realize that on the mat there is always something beautiful waiting to happen.
