What yoga has done for ME;

It’s allowed me to have no attachments to people, things or jobs.  Yoga has shown me what it feels like just to be human.

How to truly love myself which has given me access to give love to others in a new way.

My intention in my classes is to bring you knowledge, and inspiration of this practice and  a new experience every time you hit your mat.  I will create a space for you to let go of all the physical and mental things that do not serve you and land in your power as a person.
