Yoga is for everyone. My goal as a teacher is to create welcoming, accessible spaces that allow you to relax, turn inwards, make friends with your body and compassionately notice your inner world. I have a 200hr yoga teacher certification through the renowned Kripalu Center for Yoga and continuing education with Yoga for All.

Mindfulness practices such as yoga, meditation, chanting, and yes, Shabbat, are an invitation to quiet our busy minds and be present in the moment. Cultivating a Shabbat practice is a radical choice and a beautiful gift to yourself in a society that values doing more than being. This gentle yoga class is an opportunity to deepen your Shabbat practice by creating intentional space to pause your busy schedule, turn inward, and simply appreciate being alive. The class will explore themes connected with the Shabbat practice, the Jewish calendar and/or the Torah reading cycle. If you are comfortable writing on Shabbat please bring a notebook and pen to class; there will be dedicated time for journaling and reflection.
COVID-19 Precautions: You must be vaccinated to attend. Masks are required. If you are experiencing any symptoms or have recently been exposed to the virus please stay at home.
Accessibility note: This slow, gentle hatha yoga practice may incorporate supine, prone, sitting, and/or standing postures. You should be able to comfortably move between sitting and standing without assistance to participate (there are no chairs available in the studio). Modifications will be offered and you are always invited to do what feels best for your body. You may bring your own props or use what is available in the studio.

Guidance & Inspiration
This is a one hour, virtual yoga consultation over Zoom. Are you new to yoga and nervous about what to expect in a studio? Do you live in a larger body and want to learn how to modify common poses to work for you? Do you have a specific posture that simply doesn’t work for you that you want to modify or get around in a class? Or a few postures that you would like advice on form and alignment? Come to me with your yoga questions and curiosities and I will do my best to assist you!
Folks all ages in all body types welcome! I will not be able to provide guidance on inversion postures. Please note, I am not a medical professional and will not provide any physical diagnosis - please consult your doctor or physical therapist if you have an injury or are recovering from an accident.
