In my classes I teach Hatha Yoga and Beginner style classes. I want everyone to be able to join in so I give modifications for all level types. So no worries if you’re new to yoga! You can do this!
I believe that the breath work or “pranayama” is the most important part of a practice to help calm thoughts, to reduce anxiety and to help you to “drop in” to your body and feel more centered. So we will begin each class this way.
The poses themselves are the fun part and where we get to “play” while we learn! I will assist you in getting in and out of poses correctly. And we explore options through the poses…I will give you cues so that you can access the version of the pose that works best for your body. You might be surprised to see what your body can do! And have fun in the process!
Yoga class is meant to be an “experience” to transform you on a mental, physical, and spiritual level. This is my goal! Each practice we will learn a health related theme or a new fun fact. And we’ll work to slow down our thinking mind and just enjoy the present moment.
Given my love of the moon and stars, I can’t help but impart a tidbit of astrology into my classes. Whether it be info about the new moon, full moon, horoscope signs or a planetary transit – you will hear a little “astro-talk” in my classes.
Due to Covid-19 my current offerings are ONLINE using the ZOOM format:

Feel welcome to join us! We currently have a small group (5ish) that is working to sustain our home practice and keep up our strength and flexibility. In August we are celebrating ONE YEAR of practicing together online, and I think you will find everyone is so friendly and supportive. At the beginning of class I always ask for your suggestions, what everyone needs, be it a focus on neck, shoulders, hips, etc. So that you can get the stretch you need and the great part is that you can move your screen or turn off your camera so that you can still see and hear me lead the practice, but no one can see you! That way, if you don’t feel like doing certain poses or you need a break and just want to lie on your mat for a bit, no one is the wiser and your practice is completely private!
We do all come together at the end of our shavasana to say goodbye, to send loving energy to each other, and to give virtual hugs and well wishes for the week ahead. We are like a family – in Hawaii they call family “Ohana” – (I just love this!) so I invite you to come and join our Yoga Ohana!
$8/class or pay what you can (and the first class is FREE so you can try it out!)
So here’s the deal- I am suggesting a $8 fee per class but want you to pay what you can afford. Even if this means you can’t pay right now. These are hard times for lots of reasons and yoga will help you to feel better! This is my way of paying it forward to you my friend so please feel free to join in regardless of pay ability.
I take payments on Venmo or by credit card below:
Need a Private Class?
I also do private one-on-one sessions. If you are brand new to yoga, nervous as heck, or have physical limitations that prevent you from joining a group class – I am happy to come to you online! That’s the beauty of ZOOM! I will only charge $20 per session to do a private online yoga class. I’ll help you to get into poses properly so you don’t hurt yourself and we’ll modify for your individual situation in a private and compassionate environment. I was new once too and horrified to walk through the gym to the yoga room…but I overcame that when I learned how good it feels! We are all different sizes and shapes and the light in me honors and respects the light in you! Namaste.
I am working to build an online library for you of our recorded classes so you can do yoga anytime. This will be on YouTube and will include both yoga classes and meditation practices that you can do at your own pace and when you need a little something extra. Yoga is here for us to calm our minds and bodies and I want to be a light to each of you my friends. More info to come on this soon…
