I have recently got my yoga certificate and got registerd at Yoga Alliance, started teaching and simply love everything about yoga. On and off the mat. The most fascinating is yoga therapy.

Then I get a mixture of challenging asanas, pranayama, mantra and relaxation in one session.
The most healing asana for me is Salamba sirsasana.… Continue

During the month of May, at my home studio in Salt Lake, my students donated $200.00 to Yoga Bear. They felt blessed to have the opportunity to take yoga and donate money, knowing that those battling cancer would be able to experience the healing power of yoga.
