2/20-3/27 - Only the first class will appear on the schedule.
Have you been interested in trying or learning about meditation? Are you curious how to begin or what to do? It's understandable to have questions when starting something new. Research shows a regular meditation practice can serve to reduce stress, increase focus, improve sleep, or improve relationships. Commit to a six-week series in a friendly, non-judgmental environment.
The classes will be broken into a few different parts to offer a variety of meditation techniques. Each part will start with a clear description, move into that practice, and close with time for questions and discussion.
*If you are gifted with a heightened sense of smell, please note this is an active massage studio, so there are scented lotions and oils used in this space.

My yoga path began in 2000 in a college-town in North Texas. Initially I was drawn to the physical challenge. The strange shapes and newfound strength in my body was exhilarating. Over time, the appeal of my yoga practice shifted. I'm drawn to the silence and stillness when feeling overwhelmed. I feel creative and energized after a challenging flow. I am connected and find community when traveling or moving some place new. There are so many styles of yoga. So many shapes and ways to practice. As a student, I love learning how to study and care for my self (body and mind) which allows me to care for those around me and beyond.
In 2012, I completed a 200-hr Anusara TT with Silvia Mordini's Alchemy of Yoga and a 200-hr Power Yoga TT with CorePower Yoga. The former embraced creativity, flow, and the healing and transformative powers of yoga while the latter offered structure, form and technique. In my classes I blend these styles. I teach heart-centric, intentional flows using clear cues and offering many ways to personalize. I also completed Next Generation Yoga's kids training so a little silliness and play can be expected as well.
