I think a yoga practice should be challenging yet fun!
Favorite pose: Tree
I take a lighthearted approach to a fairly vigorous flow. I enjoy finding the intersection of mindfulness and athleticism on my mat. My sequencing is thoughtfully improvised and includes playful balancing and unusual transitions. I view yoga as an art form and allow the metaphor of the poses to speak for themselves.
Random quote: “Nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile”
I have discovered that I need to expend energy in order to quiet my mind and tire my body; and my classes reflect this realization. Come expecting to sweat and (gasp) maybe even laugh.
Second favorite pose: Forearm plank
I completed my 200 hour training under Alexa Lane at Aloka Life in Westport, CT in 2010. I am also a TRX instructor and a Baby Om teacher.
