About Me

Yoga changed my Life and it's just too good a thing to keep to myself! I have been practicing yoga since 1995 and am a certified yoga instructor. I teach a combination of classical Hatha, Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow. My teaching style is safe, compassionate and challenging at the same time. I teach at a number of studios, and also offer private and group lessons!

In addition to my schedule, I post other writings here, about yoga and Life in general. For private or group lessons, contact me at: workofheartyoga@gmail.com .

Kids Yoga Teacher Training Memorial Day weekend!

Jules Hogan of UPDOGdowndogYoga is a yoga teacher I met at GODA Yoga. She's not only a great yogini, she's spunky, has a great sense of humor, and loves kids. She teaches kids yoga classes at GODA that are great for your little ones to burn off some of their energy, get comfortable moving their bodies and to have some fun and learn the art of mellowing out. She also does private lessons and kids parties and lots of other great, creative stuff. So check her out.

Also, she's now conducting her first ever Kids Yoga Teacher Training.If you love yoga, and you love kids, you should check it out! Feel free to pass this notice on to anyone you think would be interested. Here's the details:

April's Yoga Playlist, and private yoga lessons...

Dearest Yogis and Yoginis,

By popular demand, I am including one of my yoga playlists for you below. I have to be honest, I'm not a wiz at making playlists. It took me about 7 hours to put it together. I had no idea how popular it would be, but why keep a good thing secret? Speaking of...

I am now available for private yoga lessons for individuals or for groups.

No, they are not just for Madonna and Sting. They are for beginners who want a little more one-on-one instruction in particular poses, they are for those recovering from injuries that want specific instruction on safety, they are for more experienced yogis wanting to deepen their practice, as well as for those that want a more private, and "on their own schedule" lesson that will give them an excellent work out. In other words, they are for you. And they also make great presents for others. I'm just sayin'...

If you or anyone you know is interested, please feel free to email me at: workofheartyoga@gmail.com or call me at (310) 559-2570.
