I believe that hugs can say more than words.I believe that you should not just hug others, but hug yourself… love yourself, your body, and your life…. I believe that my practicing yoga is my way of screaming from the mountaintops “I love you” to myself. I believe that teaching yoga helps me show others how to tell themselves I love you..
I believe that there is magic in this life and we are surrounded by it every day, we just need to open our eyes and our hearts. If I can help others find a little bit of that magic while playing on the mat, that is a hug to me. If I can help wipe some of the dust from the eyes while playing on the mat, it’s a squeezing hug to me.
I believe that we can all hang on to a little bit of the child inside us, that we can see the world with child like wonder, laugh uncontrollably, hug as if it’s the last one, and play as if our body has never felt pain.
I believe in magic of a hug.
I have been teaching yoga since 2010, but have been practicing for over 20 years. As a restorative yoga teacher, writer, and mama in Austin, TX, I work hard to create a community that feels connected to each other and themselves. My carefully crafted classes include a loving blend of restorative and yin yoga, myofascial release, along with space to come “home” to your body. The soft surrender of restorative offer yogis a chance to leave class feeling energized and supported. Classes often feel like a community and students are often surprised with home cooked goodies after long relaxing Savannas. Our time on the mat together is about refocusing the mind to be present and shift towards the positive as well as making peace with our bodies as they are. We keep things playful, fun, challenging, and always full of laughter!
I have studied with viniyoga teachers and am currently in a mentorship with Elena Brower and I pull insight and inspiration: from poetry, sensations we want to feel, a healthy connection to source, music, and a desire to be really present with the life we are living.
I have been featured in OM Yoga Magazine with a prenatal sequence and have been highlighted in Origin Magazine. I am the co-author of “The Living Mala” and “The Living Mantra” as well as the author of “Restore Yourself“, my first solo book all about using restorative yoga as a way to come back to yourself. When I am not teaching yoga, you can find me with my family, where there is good coffee, good friends, toy trucks and a body of water!
”I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the Highest Source. I salute that Source in you. Let us work together for unity and love.” ~ Gandhi
