Light House Yoga
Yoga became a regular part of my life in 1998. Immediately, I was drawn to the physical challenge and to the idea that listening to what you need, and operating in a safe and uncomplicated space that you create for yourself in your own head, is a real possibility. Studying first at a small studio in Warren, Rhode Island, I started to practice teach and fell even more in love with yoga (as if that was possible).
Helping and guiding people to untie their knots and respect that every ”body” and each day is different, is such an amazing opportunity. I firmly believe, in order to practice yoga, all you need is a willingness to learn from and listen to yourself. The physical strength and flexibility are just an added bonus. I studied yoga at Kripalu in the winter of 2001 and earned my 200hr Certification. I have attended so many amazing trainings, retreats, and conferences with some of the most amazing teachers and yogis and completed my 500 hours of master training.
Now, I enjoy teaching my own style of a vinyasa yoga. I like to guide my students in so many ways…. slowing down, working on breath, alignment, establishing a safe foundation in every posture, and giving modifications and advanced options when it is appropriate; always respecting when less is more and the power of breath. One of my favorite things about yoga practice is each day is different; I am constantly learning new things about myself in a posture that I have done one thousand times before. The joy of watching that happen in my students is something I cherish deeply.
Sunday Morning Sadhana
(Sundays @ 8:30am – 60 minutes)
As a philosophy, Vinyasa recognizes the temporary nature of things. We enter into a posture, are there for a while and then leave. Vinyasa, is a breath initiated practice, that connects every action of our life with the intention of moving towards what is sacred, or most important to us.
