Great flow, and Adina brought light joy to my practice
I first stepped onto my yoga mat in 2002, in Studio City, CA. I was born and raised in California as a dancer but grew up to be a traveler & Set Decorator for Television & Film. The slow stretching is what lured me into that first class. Very quickly I found there was more going on in yoga class so kept exploring… on and off again… for years. In any time of difficulty I would find myself back on the mat. It brought me ease & peace. In times of stress it brought me back to my true nature. And in off hours it brought physical relaxation, strength & fun. Bonus! Why would I ever leave my mat? These are the aspects I focus on in class. A steady Vinyasa - studying breath, alignment, & stability – sprinkled with the philosophy behind how it’s all connected. I often look at how we can carry yoga off the mat and into everyday life. With life’s many adventures and lessons I do a lot of breath work on the 405 freeway, Tadasana when I’m at a register checkout line, and feel a connection with the earth as it supports my feet as I walk my son to school. I earned my 200-hour yoga teacher training certification (finally) in 2014 at Rising Lotus Yoga under the tutelage of Claire Hartley & Daniel Stewart. I was additionally certified in 2014 to teach kids yoga through Mini Yogis. It’s a lifelong journey – Let’s explore.
