*You can anticipate a dedicated teacher. I will only teach you what I have personally studied, practiced and found to be worth sharing. You can expect a Classical Raja Yoga or Traditional Hatha Yoga teaching style, with strong emphasis on Yoga Therapy, including a focus on maintaining the joints of the body, spinal strength/core work, spinal flexibility, opening the shoulders & hips, as well as strengthening the hands & feet. I am experienced with chronic pain, neuropathy, arthritis, correcting poor digestion, alleviating pain due to hyper flexibility, particularly if you are experiencing pain due to excessive/hyper-mobility in the joints/ligaments/tendons. I also have significant personal experience with utilizing my Yoga practice as a method to successful combat anxiety and symptoms of depression, including eliminating/reducing the experience panic of attacks. Text me @250-858-3854 to register or drop-in. Love to see you in class 🙂

Private Sessions: Looking to establish a home yoga practice (either traditional floor or Chair Yoga) for the first time? Want to deepen your current asana practice? I can select a sequence of postures that are relevant to your needs, either healing an ongoing injury, resolving old scar tissue, coping with anxiety symptoms and learning more details of a particular posture. Or maybe you want to have yoga at your workplace during lunch break? Available for $60 per hour in my home studio (up to 2 students, add $10 per additional student if more than 2 students) or workplace ($10/student/class, $60/hr minimum).
Semi-Privates: I have a few students who want to take weekly or bi-monthly privates with me but cannot afford my $60/hour rate on their own. I charge $60 an hour for up to 2 students or $75 for 3 students. If you are interested in joining a semi-private class group, please let me know!
Looking forward to supporting you in evolving your Yoga practice!
