My goal is to inspire practitioners to adopt a non-judgmental attitude toward their bodies and release preconceived ideas about the way postures should look and instead tune into their breath and feel each movement so that they may find healing and growth in their own practice and achieve physical, emotional and spiritual health.

We each have a beautiful bright light within and when we let it shine, we can overcome the darkness around us.
