ashtanga yoga: the 8 limbs

yoga heals from the inside out. I began a devoted practice and study of yoga in 2001, and have practiced Ashtanga Yoga daily since 2012. Over the years, I've explored many yoga traditions and have always remained a dedicated student. I teach yoga classes, private sessions, and workshops in the Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota area. view upcoming workshops
