The goal of my asana (yoga postures) classes are to help people get into their bodies, relieve tension, gently build strength, and appreciate the vessel that carries us. With a trauma-conscious approach, participants are encouraged to do what is right for them with several options given for various energy levels. That means you could strive for a fiery practice or one that is lowkey and gentle. You could bust out headstands or spend the entire time in a resting posture. Any and all are welcome. We celebrate all body types, ethnicities, genders, and orientations. I believe that asana is for everyone and that our true essence deserves to be appreciated, accepted, and adored.
As stated before, everyone is welcome, especially newbies. Each class starts with a gentle check in of the body, light movement, a mix of sun and moon salutations to warm up, moving meditation, slow, yummy, deep stretches, and guided meditaion during our resting posture at the end.
I also love that most of my yoga sessions look different from what you'd typically expect. Many involve intimidating spaces and loads of very in-shape, lean, bendy white woman (absolutely no shade against them at all!), whereas my classes tend to have a good mix of men and women and all body shapes and abilities. This is a safe space to be you and not strive to fit any sort of ideal. I believe that yoga is for all, and I'm so excited to bring asana to those who might not otherwise find it.
I hope to see you soon!
