Weekend Wake Up
online class

Discovering yoga changed my life. Since becoming a yoga teacher in the early ‘90’s, I’ve been on a journey of learning and sharing. Passionate about keeping myself, my students and my clients strong and vibrant, my teaching is all about understanding the body from a functional perspective. My Pilates’ training in Anatomy & Biomechanics, Diverse Populations: Athletes, Seniors and Pre/Post Rehab are based on the latest research in physiotherapy and osteopathy. I am Level 3 certified in the osteopathic-based method known as ELDOA. An ELDOA class is like the icing on the cake: combining functional Pilates concepts as preparation to ready the body for the challenging, meditative stillness of ELDOA poses. Reminiscent of the ancient yoga practice that first inspired me, I offer a mindful practice from a modern, science-based platform to keep bodies moving well and with ease.
Description
This Saturday morning class is for those who are needing to decompress, unload, and let go. We move the spine in all directions with flow, stillness, breath, and meditation. This is a wonderful class to develop strength, stamina, and flexibility while letting go of the aggressive habits of pushing, pulling, and judgement. While we encourage all levels of practice to this class, we recommend that you have some familiarity with yoga, or another body/mind centered practice.
