In addition to massage therapy, I am pleased to offer private beginner/intermediate yoga instruction at my office in Salida, Colorado.
Have you ever wanted to learn the basics of yoga, but were intimidated by the thought of joining a class where it feels like everyone else already knows what to do? Do you just want to keep up your practice, but find it difficult to find a class whose timing matches your schedule? Private yoga instruction can help you develop or maintain a practice that is tailored to you unique needs. Whether you want to learn basic poses, sequences, “lingo” or continue to develop your practice, I can help!
As a massage therapist, I find that my own yoga practice allows me to maintain my flexibility, build strength, and quiet my busy mind. My clients who practice yoga are able to compliment and build on the work I do as a therapist, by keeping their physical bodies more flexible and balanced.
Before moving to Colorado, I received my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training from Yoga West in 2005, followed by additional continuing education courses over the years. I provided one on one and group instruction at my studio, Bliss Bodyworks, in the small Gulf coastal town of Rockport, followed by teaching classes and private instruction at a health club in Austin. I am currently providing 1:1, private yoga instruction at the beginner to intermediate levels from my office in Salida, which is located in the La Placita building, next to Simple Foods.
I teach from a Western perspective with an intent to de-mystify the practice of yoga and make it fun, accessible and comfortable for people of all ages and abilities. I prefer to blend styles of yoga to best meet the individual needs of my clients. So, you may do some static poses in the Hatha tradition, flow through an Ashtanga sequence, or do breath work, all in the same class. Give me a call to talk about what yoga can do for your body!
