25 years ago I discovered Kripalu Center For Yoga in the Berkshires and I fell in love with Yoga. I immersed my self and one day I called to see what new offerings Kripalu had, so I decided to take the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training and have taught ever since. Yoga has become part of my everyday life, and my greatest joy is introducing and teaching Yoga to others.I offer workshops in "How to weave yoga into your everyday life" Pranayama (Yoga breathing), "Yoga off the mat" (standing/chair Yoga), Mindfulness, and Partner Yoga. I now have over 500 hours of training in Kripalu and Thai Yoga massage. I have taught Yoga at the New Life Hiking Spa for 6 years and look forward to developing new classes in the Killington / Rutland area.

Gentle Flow (Beginner, All-Level)
Even if you’ve been practicing Yoga for years, it is truly a gift to allow yourself to be a beginner again. Cultivation of breath and awareness followed by stress releasing exercises and working slowly into postures, the intention of this class is to create a well-rounded approach to yoga. This class combines a Gentle Flow with strengthening postures and dynamic stretching. Great for beginners and experienced Yogi’s, the purpose of this class is to learn to flow with yogic awareness and intention in your everyday life.

Slow Flowing Restorative Yoga (All-Level)
Restorative Yoga is a gentle, therapeutic practice that allows the body to open at its own pace. Using props (straps, blankets, bolsters) to support the body in positions of ease, postures are held for one to six minutes without effort or force. This allows the body to relax deeply, which in turn supports the natural conditions to relax and rest the mind while remaining aware. Consciously resting offers the body an opportunity to renew and heal by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system, the body’s natural relaxation response. Nurturing and strengthening the parasympathetic response helps restore equilibrium between other essential physiological systems, lowering the heart rate and blood pressure, stimulating the immune system, and keeping the endocrine system healthy. *This class ends with 6 minutes of Savasana (aka Corpse Pose) which is essential for restoring energy.
Niyama (Sanskrit: नियम) literally means positive duties or observances. In Indian traditions, particularly Yoga, niyamas and its complement, Yamas, are recommended activities and habits for healthy living, spiritual enlightenment and liberated state of existence.
