Her classes are powerful, balancing and playful while creating a supportive environment that allows for a deeper understanding of the magical relationship between mother and baby. She utilizes aromatherapy, healing sound, light touch, gentle asana, and guided mediation to bring awareness to the breath and womb space. Her desire is that you step off the mat feeling restored, renewed and connected.
