“Iyengar Yoga is a lifelong practice. It is an art, science, and philosophy. It teaches us and challenges us to be focused, humble, and steady. The lessons we learn in the classroom and in our home practice guide us. We can take them with us throughout our daily lives, our jobs, and our relationships.” IYAGNY

Begin where you are: All classes introduce principles of breath, awareness, and alignment. 

We always work with strength, flexibility, balance and freedom in practice.

About

Hello! Thank you for visiting my website 🙂

I’m a E-RYT 500+ Yoga Instructor and a provider of Continuing Education Credits with Yoga Alliance. I have been practicing yoga since 1995 and teaching since 2002. Have been teaching experiential anatomy since 2010, and guiding Somatic Meditation group classes since 2017.

Before all that I practiced Basque dances as a little girl and later Flamenco. In 2007 I took the fifth kiu test in Aikido practice. At a cross roads between yoga and Aikido, I made the decision to focus on learning Iyengar yoga. I continue doing that. 

In 2006 I graduated from Theresa Rowland’s 600-hr teacher training and in 2016 I became certified in the Iyengar Yoga Tradition.

Passionate about anatomy studies, I completed the Advanced Studies in Yoga Anatomy under Leslie Kaminoff at the Breathing Project and Embodied Anatomy and Kinesiology with Amy Matthews.  I certified  in Embodied Anatomy and Developmental Movement and Yoga with the School for Body Mind Centering.  I continue studying anatomy because the field keeps updating itself and I have a thirst for knowing. This year 2021, I am studying the mandible or jaw space. 

I have been meditating since my teenage years and have been fortunate to study with teachers from different traditions. This year 2021 I finished Mindful Self-Compassion Training with the Greater Good Science Center. 

I am committed to offer instruction in Iyengar Yoga, mindful movement, Somatic Meditation and experiential anatomy. All classes introduce principles of alignment, anatomy, kinesiology, awareness, and breath. My classes are personalized every single time.

Inspired by the body of work from Geeta Iyengar, senior Iyengar Yoga teachers, and with the kind support of the late Theresa Rowland and Studio Yoga Madison, in 2019 I started the Women Class Series,  a space for women to learn about the richness, diversity and creative practices that Iyengar Yoga offers to women in all stages of their lives. I enjoy creating a space to share the joy of learning in movement and quietude. The series are now called Pelvic Awareness and Pelvic Floor Class Series.

I dedicated 2020 to study the pelvic space. I’m very inspired and grateful by the work of Leslie Howard, Rebecca Weisman and Meagen Satinski. I am grateful to the anatomy lessons from Thomas Myers, Eric Franklin, and Anna Crowle, Ph.D. I have enjoyed watching the movement interpretation that Karin Gurtner offers with her Slings Myofascial Training. I am very grateful for the opportunity to learn from people that is so dedicated and true to their work. 

Thank you to Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen and her online presence this year,  her generous scholarship “Pay from the Heart”. Thank you to David Zemach-Bersin and his generous and joyous Feldenkrais wisdom.

Thank you to Abhijata Iyengar and Prashant Iyengar for their online presence too. I have not been able to go to India, this year I have experienced your teachings and knowledge. Thank you so much, Namaste to you and the bountiful Iyengar Tradition. 

It goes without saying that my primary form of study is Iyengar Yoga. I miss taking class with James Murphy from ythe Iyengar Institute of New York, and Arun H.S. from Bangalore. I am very grateful for the recent classes with Bobby Clennell and I look forward to continue my training as a teacher with Matt Dreyfus. My teacher Theresa is no longer with us, however I studied with her for a really long time. She’s always with me.
