Yoga Therapy

YOGA:  Following the traditions of Siddha yoga and B.K.S. Iyengar, I have trained since 1982 in the disciplines of hatha yoga, meditation and yoga philosophy.   I bring to my classes extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology and yoga principles, along with a keen eye for detail and a developed capacity to sense the needs and potential of students individually and as a group to create lively and fulfilling classes.

Hatha yoga teaches:

  • Physical strength and flexibility through asana
  • Breath control
  • Concentration and poise
  • Balance and determination
  • Patience and relaxation
  • Connection with heart and soul

  • Develops agility, endurance and vitality
  • Reduces fatigue: soothes tired nerves
  • Promotes better overall health
  • Enhances the body’s resistance to “dis-ease”
  • Teaches optimal postural alignment
  • Quiets the mind; encourages inner stillness
