"As a yoga and movement instructor, my mission is to assist people so that they feel better in their bodies. In public classes, private instruction, and workshops, I draw from yoga, biomechanics, deep tissue release, and strength education to address discomfort and imbalances. My clear instruction style stems from a desire to make what I teach as accessible as possible. I want to support students' capacities to trust their own innate intelligence, and to cultivate an appropriate balance of strength and flexibility.
In the last 3 years, I have worked one-on-one with students ranging from 60-94 years of age. I am skilled at adapting movement and postures, and use a number of props to achieve desired outcomes such as creating better joint movement, "un-sticking" connective tissue, or mobilizing muscles for support, to name just a few. I have taught yoga since 2003 and am a Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 200) through Yoga Alliance. By spring of 2017 I will have completed my E-RYT 500 hour training through Seattle Yoga Arts (www.seattleyogaarts.com), one of the oldest and most respected yoga studios in the city." -- Beth Award
