I teach primarily two forms of hatha yoga: Hot Yoga and Yin Yoga.
Hot Yoga – I have been practicing Hot Yoga for many years under the tutelage of a master – Brian Monnier, of San Francisco’s California Yoga Company. Brian has been teaching yoga for over a decade in San Francisco, and was trained by Yoga Master Tony Sanchez, following a system believed to have originated from Yogi Matsyendranatha from the Natha of physical culturists – Hatha Yogis – established sometime between the 5th and 10th century A.D. The advanced sequence that we follow contains 84 asanas (poses). “Heated, healing yoga” as I call it, or “Hot Yoga” is a movement of Hatha Yoga that is practiced in a heated room. At California Yoga Company, we keep our studio between 90 and 95 degrees to help you stretch safely. I completed a 200 hour program in 2009 and an advanced 500 hour program in 2011 under Brian and am a senior teacher at his studio. While completing my yoga certification I became a personal trainer, becoming certified in 2010 by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). This background heavily informs my yoga practice and instruction.
“Yintuition”- My form of Yin Yoga practice, adding the meditative energetic influences of Qi Gong to my understanding of the myofascial body lines. Asanas are held longer, focusing mostly on the area from the knees to the ribs, yet the energy flow and benefits will be felt from head to toe.
Yoga sessions can be done at my studio, near 8th and Mission Streets in San Francisco, at Fitness Urbano, near 17th and Missouri Streets, San Francisco, at California Yoga Company, near Pine and Polk Streets, San Francisco, or at your location.
