I consider myself an 'Accidental Yogini’. Years ago, as an admitted gym rat and not understanding the importance of stretching, I found myself in physical therapy. A short time later, while still in PT, I attended my first yoga class and realized that my ‘physical therapy’ exercises were also yoga asanas, or postures. Enjoying the physical aspects of yoga, I continued to practice and realized that yoga offered what I felt lacking from my gym regimen; that whole mind, body, spirit connection. I'd also, at that point, suffered for years in silence with severe anxiety and debilitating panic attacks. The more I practiced the more peace I found and the anxiety and panic attacks all but disappeared. It wasn't long before I fell head over heels with what I lovingly describe as “this beautiful thing called Yoga” and have dedicated myself to bringing this practice to people of all ages; believing fully that yoga benefits everyone.
I gently and playfully guide people of all ages and fitness levels through various forms of yoga including Hatha, Hatha Flow, Gentle, Beginners, Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, Children’s, and Chair yoga; fully believing that if one can breathe, one can practice and experience the benefits of yoga.
Studio classes offered at Aja Yoga Flow are for those students who enjoy sharing a 'class' experience but desire a more informal, cozy environment. Class sizes are small and each is followed with an opportunity to sit, chat, share a light bite and a cup of tea if desired.
Private sessions, be it Yoga, Meditation, or Reiki, are tailored to the individual client's needs; whether you're a seasoned yogi or just starting out, understanding that no two students or clients are alike in their physical, emotional, or spiritual needs.
Getting started may seem daunting, but if you have a desire to achieve a fuller, healthier, more balanced and peaceful life, you'll find it here.
