I graduated from a 5 month long residence teacher training program as a certified Prana Flow Yoga teacher on June 1, 2012 and have been teaching yoga in the Rio Rancho area ever since. I'm continually amazed at the power of yoga practices in my life and my goal is to share this practice with others. I am on a path of life long learning, always trying to expand my own practice. The style of yoga I am trained in is vinyasa or flow yoga, rather than hatha yoga. In Vinyasa there are special patterns of movement and transition from one pose to another is done gracefully; whereas in Hatha yoga, a series of individual poses is done one at a time, on the right and then left side of the body, Vinyasa is more like a dance -- and in this case, a nice slow dance. We take our time, and don't rush it. When practiced with attention breath, and to aligning breath with movement, this style of asana practice also helps calm and focus the mind. Additionally, instead of running in circles on a treadmill, which targets only a few muscles groups, asana practice and flow sequences work every muscle in the body as well as reviving important subtle processes in the body that keep us vibrant and functioning at our best.
