Yoga has been a key foundation in my life since beginning dance as a young girl. I primarily practiced Classical Ballet, but never hesitated to adventure into other forms of dance including Afro-Jazz, Tap and Modern. Yoga was the essential ingredient to create strength, flexibility and balance. After retiring from a dance career of 14-years, I ran full force into the arms of the Yoga world. In 2009 I studied the philosophy and practice of Yoga in Mesa, AZ at 5th Element Yoga, and received my 300-hour Yoga Teacher Registration with Yoga Alliance.
The philosophy of Yoga eventually opened my eyes to the practice of mindful meditation. Breathing and meditation techniques are a daily routine of mine which I believe has created a new level of compassion and joy in my life. I studied under a disciple of Thich Nhat Hanh, a Buddihist Monk and author who teaches mindful meditation. Meditation deepened my belief that health is our birthright. Now I provide a comprehensive application of mindful meditation, breathing and relaxation techniques.
This beginner/open level sequence will help you build strength, increase flexibility and find focus. You will learn the fundamental postures and principles that create a successful and effective yoga practice. This class is a Vinyasa series, meaning breath is linked to movement, and set to music. This yoga class is ideal for anyone new to yoga or those who want to slow it down (including Prenatal Yogis). Class is practiced in a room with no added humidity. (1 hour; Intensity Level 1/2)

Yoga is the practice of quieting the mind.
Yoga is possible for anybody who really wants it. Yoga is universal.... But don't approach yoga with a business mind looking for worldly gain.
