We started Love Yoga in 2010 with the intention of inspiring others to ease pain and find joy through movement, stillness and awareness. The Love Yoga Training inspires others to do the same. From that program, an amazing yoga community has evolved that does even more to reduce stress, relieve tension, inspire laughter, create connections, share music and make friends. We encourage a functional fitness approach to yoga with a nourishing and soulful practice that includes nutrition, relaxation and connection. But most of all we spread the Love.
I try to infuse my classes with as much humor, science, meditation and anatomy as I can because those are the things I love most. I also usually try to find a chill 70’s music playlist, or just let Spotify roll with it. If that’s not working I’ll fill the silence with my vast amounts of knowledge and wisdom or simply let you simmer in silence. No problem. I’m not afraid of awkward silences… at all. I’ll give you plenty of opportunities to challenge yourself while offering a modest approach to the practice that encourages each and every person to allow their strength and flexibility to build naturally. Focusing on the qualities of mind that are the most beneficial to your overall well-being is time well spent.
