Yoga

I discovered yoga as an antidote for my daughter’s departure for college.

I considered that first class a gift to myself for raising this child and having the courage to let her go. That was 16 years ago. My first class turned into a serious practice which led me to teacher training. But it took a while to muster the courage to teach. Through my practice I was able to conquer that fear and I now eagerly look forward to every class I teach.That is how powerful yoga can be.

A typical class begins with quiet self-reflection, then moves to breathing practices, postures that increase flexibility and strength,balance poses, some gentle flowing, and ends with plenty of time for meditative relaxation. I emphasize proper alignment and safety while encouraging each individual to adapt these postures to their own body on any given day.

The nature of the country setting here allows all of our senses to come alive while we do our yoga. We witness sunsets, the first buds on the blueberry bushes, the smells of spring, and  those savasanas during a thunderstorm are amazing!
