Yoga Barn - the essence of yoga


The yoga sessions and classes are holistic and reflect the individual needs of the students.  In giving care and attention to a healthy body, mind and spirit I encourage  clients and students to find their own approach to practice, to be empowered and to feel the positive benefits of yoga practice and lifestyle. 

We have the ability to be our own best teacher, we  need the right experience to connect us with the ability to create an optimal state of our own personal health and well being. In my yoga teaching, I provide an informed yoga class that gives the student a yoga experience that suits their personal goals and needs

As a  practitioner of yoga with over 20 years of experience in teaching and yoga practice I share the benefits of the lifestyle with my students.   I use my experience and authentic traditional yoga training to teach a range of yoga practices and lifestyle techniques people can use to improve health and wellness.
