In the Iyengar spirit, I’m always encouraging my students to play with working sharply while letting go, at once to widen and narrow, to be both strong and flexible, to do and not do. I teach them how to break their body up into parts, while teaching them how to integrate from head to toe. It takes a humble, inquisitive eye inward to be able to raise one’s body IQ like this, to create space in both the body and mind.
Through their practice, my students attempt to turn lights on in their bodies, in places that have not only been dark but perhaps they’ve never even looked before – to deliberately move, not just stretch.
I work primarily with women, in all stages of their lives. However, many of my students are approaching motherhood – such a unique phase of life. I work with women who want to conceive to promote their fertility, with women prenatally as well as women postpartum. Through the lens of a birth doula, I’m able to help my students cultivate a healthy pregnancy, prepare for the birth experience they envision, heal fully and restore their energy as mothers. Yoga has the potential to not only enhance the spiritual, personal journey of pregnancy but to make delivery and recovery easier.
In much the same way, Iyengar Yoga allows all of us to work from the inside out, to find our center, catch glimpses of our truest self, learn our boundaries, increase stamina, nurture poise and fortify our organic body. It’s my true honor to teach.
