Get Started

Currently, all of my classes and private sessions are online.These classes come in a variety of formats– some are just like my guided classes, some are more more theoretical. 

How I work

I teach Ashtanga Yoga, in the mysore style. I am the director of DC Ashtanga, a grassroots community of mysore style ashtanga yoga practitioners.

I help people get stronger as a personal trainer and a mobility specialist.

For both modalities, I utilize functional range conditioning. 

For yoga practitioners, I provide two ways to engage in individual instruction, either through a private session or in the Mysore style. 

For non-practitioners, I provide assessment and training for mobility, using the functional range conditioning system. 

 

What is Ashtanga yoga?

Ashtanga Yoga is a traditional Indian wisdom practice

 Wisdom, or insight practices, are practices that are meant to reveal deeper truths about the nature of this life. 

Practice incorporates mindset, meditation, and morality. 

I teach Ashtanga through a breath and movement system that encourages a strong and healthy body as well as a calm and stable mind. 

 


Mysore Style Ashtanga Yoga

Mysore Style Ashtanga Yoga, as it is taught in Mysore, India, is a breath and movement system.

The movements are  collection of routines that systematically assess, rehabilitate, and then train every part of the body. 

The breathing practice  facilitates the development and maintence of a healthy nervous system, which allows for greater distress tolerance and a sense of overall wellness being. 

functional Range conditioning

Functional Range Conditioning is a system for joint health. There are three main goals when using FRC, and they are closely related and developed simultaneously.

Mobility Development: Mobility refers to the amount of active, usable motion that one possesses. The more mobile a person is, the more they are able to maximize their movement potential safely, efficiently, and effectively.

Joint Strength: While improving mobility and movement potential, the FRC® system also acts to ‘bullet proof’ (or safe-guard) your joints so that movement can be executed safely.
 
Body Control: Training with FRC® improves the function of your nervous system. This leads to a reduction of pain and injury, joint health and longevity, as well as an increased ability to move freely and easily.
