A Deeper Look into your Practice (Workshop)

This class is taught by:

Hometown: Grafton, MA

Favorite inspirational quote: Depends on what day you ask me really. I have so many! As of late, “Dance in the Rain”. It implies that we can find good in all things.

When/where/with who was your first yoga class? Quincy, MA – in 1980 at the local YMCA. It was the first time I realized that I could bring calm and peace into my being.

What / who inspires you? My children, Yoga teachers that stay genuine and true and committed to the practice.

What I love most about yoga is: Yoga not only helps me feel more confident physically, it strengthens me spiritually. I walk through life with more confidence, optimism, self awareness and with a more positive joyful attitude.

What you can’t live without? My children. They are my greatest teachers and no one can make my belly laugh the way they do.

What you might not know about me: I once was a Color Guard in a Marching Band.

Best advice you’ve ever received (from who?): “Make it Good”. Whenever I find myself having an especially bad day, I try to pause and think about what’s gone well that day. What happened that was good. What’s good about my life. When I do I find it shifts my whole perspective.

My favorite book: Again, so many! A Path with Heart by Jack Kornfield, and “How Yoga Works” by Christie McNally and Michael Roach

Favorite Word: “Grace”

Local escape: Hopkinton State Park

My favorite thing to do(other than yoga): Watching the sunset preferably by the ocean.

Metrowest yoga will be offering a workshop series dedicated to deepening your understanding of specific poses. This comprehensive series will allow our skilled Teachers to go beyond the scope of a regular class in order to help make sense of difficult to grasp poses. For example, inversions can be challenging, and yes a little scary but we will give you the tools you need to find new strength and perspective in achieving these often challenging poses. Each week one of our Teachers will lead a class geared towards a different pose, tailoring a sequence specifically focused on the pose at hand. Understanding the principles of the poses and how they relate to each other can help clear some of the mystery behind the practice. Strengthen your practice by expanding your knowledge.
