Yoga

Take a break from the hustle and bustle, and discover the healing, embodying and nurturing benefits of yoga.
An oasis for your body and soul.

I really don’t think I can fully put into words what yoga means to me and my own Soulful Self Care. I have been practicing yoga for over 20 years. It started out as a way to exercise on my lunch hour. Quickly I realized there was way more to this yoga thing than just fitness. For me yoga is the most unique combination of physically exhilarating and challenging and yet calming, soothing and heart-Soul connecting at the same time!

In my further study of yoga I have come to know its really all about embodiment of our Spirit, of our Soulful Self. Being so conscious and present during yoga (because let’s be honest you cannot move through the poses if you are not present!) allows us to actually FEEL ourselves in this physical body. Conscious connection with our breath, our life force energy, while moving in our body brings us present to our deepest Self in a way nothing else can. We learn how to expand, become more flexible, stronger and more consciously aware while we are on the mat in order so we can live it off the mat.


Yoga is so much more than just Asanas (the poses). Yoga philosophy and history teaches us that yoga is an ancient, time-tested gateway to our Truth.

I am a 200 HR certified yoga teacher. I have also taken many continuing education courses in order to further my own yoga knowledge and experience. I look forward to seeing you on the mat.
