Yoga Session
Topic: Yoga for Increased Energy
Topic: Kapalbhati & Shitali Pranayam

As an avid yoga practitioner and a teacher, I strive to create an open and safe environment in which both new and experienced students can comfortably practice. My teaching focuses on helping students establish a rhythm using breath and movement while strengthening their bodies and creating stillness in their minds. Above all, I consider yoga to be an exploration of oneself – where I encourage students to turn their attention inward to understand what is real in each moment.
