Born: Fairfax, VA
Guiltless Pleasures: ice cream, naps with my 2 dogs, reading, outdoor music concerts, Homeland on Showtime, walks in nature with my hubby & exploring new music & sounds on Spotify.
Why Yoga: I practice because it helps me to stay calm, be fully present, and make decisions in my life. In 2013, my life changed as I had a VAD that caused a stroke. I enjoy sharing with others, dealing with their own life's changes, the reminder that our yoga is always changing along our journey.

Moderate yoga classes explore the balance between effort and ease. The aim of this class is to strengthen the body by sustaining more challenging postures at a moderate pace and developing mental focus through meditation and breathing practices. This class is ideal for those with an existing yoga practice, though newcomers who feel fit and strong are also welcome.
Gentle yoga classes are meditative, fluid, and soothing, suitable for beginners and seasoned practitioners alike. You experience slow movements to warm the body and release muscular tension, breathing techniques to calm the nervous system, and simple postures to build stability.
