Welcome and Namaste!
Often people ask me: What kind of Yoga do you teach? I teach and practice classical yoga postures which I mainly learned with BKS Iyengar and Dona Holleman. I am familiar with many styles of yoga. Over the last 30 years I have developed my own style. I like to focus on the essence of yoga, which is about union, wholeness and harmony within our own being and in connection with others. It is about a deep understanding of our true nature which is free from conditioning and external circumstances. I teach in a natural intuitive way and encourage my students to discover the essence of practice through asana( yoga postures), pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation. These practices become vehicles for experiencing one’s essential nature rather than goals in or of themselves.
I teach from my own experience and when I teach it comes from a long and dedicated practice. I’m almost 60 now, my practice is my life and I’m still learning with curiosity and passion….

Drop the belief that you need more
time and experience to get this;
for that is merely another idea arising
in the time-less Being.
You know that you are.
In order to negate or affirm anything, you must already be there prior to whatever you will negate or affirm. You cannot be that which you perceive.
You are the perceiving core. Rest as that.
To grasp this is instant freedom,
to miss this is bondage.
This being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all. Treat each guest honorably. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in.Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.
“This morning I wake up
knowing without any doubt
that I must change my life
in every way,
from inside out.
Today I feel the old constrictions
longing to soften
and melt in running streams
offering fresh invitations.
I have not loved enough.
What would it be like,
to let my heart
open fully to this aching world?
And what else is there to do?”
The small ruby everyone wants
has fallen on the road.
Some think that it is east of us,
other west of us.
Some say, ‘among primitive rocks’,
others, ‘in the deep waters’.
Kabir’s instinct told him it was inside,
and what it was worth.
And he wrapped it up carefully
in his heart cloth.
“All negativity is caused by an accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present. Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry — all forms of fear — are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of non-forgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.”
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found
their own way out of the debths.These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen!”
