Vin/Yin Blend

This “Yin-Yasa” practice is designed to bring balance to the two energies within the body – the feminine Yin and masculine Yang.  We’ll start with a quick warm up and then move into a level 1 vinyasa flow practice to heat the body.  For the second half of practice we will slow down and cool down, spending time in a handful different yin yoga postures to target the connective tissue of the hips, shoulders and spine.  This combined practice will help build strength and stamina, as well as flexibility.  We will close with alternate nostril breathing to further balance the Nadis (energy channels).  You’ll leave with a sense of harmony, lightness and ease that you can carry with you through the rest of your day.

Temperature: Warm, then Comfortable

Originally from Miami, I moved to the keys in 1996 with my husband and two small children to raise them in a more natural environment and a smaller, closer-knit community. I started practicing yoga then and loved how it complimented my tennis game and other sports and fitness pursuits. It wasn’t until I began yoga teacher training with Kathy at Key Largo Yoga and cultivated a daily sadhana practice that I was completely drawn in by the more subtle limbs of yoga which go way beyond just the physical asana practice. Always a voracious reader, yoga began to satisfy my “nerdy” side and my thirst as a lifelong student; a match made in heaven because there is so much to learn! The greatest thing I have learned from yoga so far is that my practice is inherently mine in a way that is inalienable; no person or thing, no matter if I am in a confined space or anywhere in the vast world, can separate me from my practice. When I teach, whether the students are locals or tourists, my intention is to build a sense of community that is unique to every class. I’ve received so much joy, knowledge, peace, growth, and understanding through yoga that it is my dharma, my purpose, to share it, spread it, and broadcast it wide. I love to travel in our RV and practice yoga everywhere I go, and I often find myself practicing outside, or at different studios around the country. My goal is to practice yoga in every National Park in the United States.
