Teaching yoga is my passion.
I am not only interested in the physical aspect of this beautiful discipline but also and most importantly in its spiritual dimension.
The focus of my practice is to find a balanced mix of mind, spirit, and body.

Yoga is a Sanskrit word that comes from the root, “yuj” which means “to join together.” Simply put, Yoga means “union.” In many ways the term Yoga is similar to the English term, “communion.” It refers to the state of union or communion with God, one’s true Self, or Higher Power.
