The translation of the word YOGA from Sanskrit means ''unity'' or ''oneness'' of all that we are, body, mind, spirit.
Yoga is a practice developed in ancient India over 3000 years ago. It made its way into the west through the physical aspects of it - the yoga poses or asanas. But truly, Yoga is a holistic practice of unfolding all human potential- physical, mental, spiritual.
It is very important for me as a yoga teacher in modern days, to share the knowledge of this practice authentically honoring all of it in the best way possible.

After many years of traveling abroad in India, Latin America, and Europe practicing with different teachers and styles of yoga, I incorporate a variety of traditional practices in movement, breath, chanting, and meditation to help each student practice their own unique form of yoga.

Yoga is a mirror to look at ourselves from within.
The Sister Science of Yoga
Ayurveda is a medical science from India deeply focused on healing and maintaining the quality and longevity of life.
Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences that developed together and repeatedly influenced each other throughout history.
They are integral parts of the great system of Vedic knowledge which states that all the universe is One Self and that the key to cosmic knowledge lies within our own minds and hearts.
As Vedic disciplines, Yoga and Ayurveda work together to enhance their great benefits on all levels.
Seasons have a profound effect on us all, and as the environment evolves from one season to another, so our bodies follow the same rhythm.
Winter is one of the most challenging times for most people. And yet very necessary for the balance of life.
Winter is the end of a cycle, a time for a pause, rest, and restore the energies, a moment of contemplation and observing the self.
In this time of darkness, we might face our own dark side, fears, and emotions. Water teaches us to trust and to let ourselves flow with life. Is the full expression of Yin energy.
Text from Swara Yoga School
Massage therapy is used to help manage a health condition or enhance wellness. It involves manipulating the soft tissues of the body.
Massage has been practiced in most cultures, both Eastern and Western, throughout human history, and was one of the earliest tools that people used to try to relieve pain.
There are studies showing that basic warm touch calms cardiovascular stress, activates the body's vagus nerve, which is intimately involved with our compassionate response, and a simple touch can trigger the release of oxytocin, “the feel-good hormone.”
People use massage for a variety of health-related purposes, including to relieve pain, rehabilitate sports injuries, reduce stress, increase relaxation, address anxiety and depression, and aid general wellness.
