Breathe. Move. Be Well.
"Integrity is utmost in the practice of yoga. Start here.
Non harming. Care for others. Ahimsa.
Manage your energy. Set boundaries. Brahmacharya.
Speak your needs and listen to other truths. Satya.
Respect, care of self and others and consent are key.
Ahimsa is love. Ahimsa is acting for justice.
If we aren't practicing in this way, no matter how beautiful our poses look,
we are not practicing yoga."
- Susanna Barkataki

I first began practicing yoga in 2001. I quickly discovered that the benefits of a regular yoga practice went beyond the physical, bringing a new sense of calm and steadiness to my life. I have been learning and practicing ever since. With a background in education, and a passion for helping others, teaching yoga seemed like a natural fit, and I began teaching yoga in 2013. As I discover more about myself, and yoga’s potential to create meaningful change in one’s life, I am drawn to learn more, and to share my compassion, knowledge, and experiences to benefit others. I believe yoga has something to offer everyone, and encourage students to come to their mats to quiet their minds, move with grace and intention, and make each practice their own.
