Classes Designed to Help You Transform

Whether or not you are an experienced yogi or just getting started, I know that trusting a new teacher is difficult. For the last 25 years, I have had the honor of teaching students of all levels and training teachers in the ancient practices of yoga. 

My classes are taught in a Fusion Yoga style. This combines easy Vinyasa flow, alignment based Hatha, Kundalini, Relaxation, and Meditation. Practice brings you closer to your essential nature and will help you break free of tendencies and habits that are no longer helpful to you. This is transformation. 


A Healthier Future Starts Today

At Sheltering Skys I know you want to do more than exist. Instead you seek to live a vibrant and authentic life so that you can discover the life that you were born to live.

In order to do that, you need a yoga practice rooted in quality instruction so that you can experience the immense benefits throughout your life.

The problem is most people believe that they don’t have what it takes to develop a truly fulfilling practice, leaving them feeling stuck and unable to move forward.

I believe you deserve to have a regular practice that allows you to feel healthy, strong, and at peace in your body.

I know there are a lot of options to choose from and trusting a new teacher with a new practice is difficult. I have spent over 25 years training students and instructors at my previous studio in San Francisco in the life changing art of yoga. I am now bringing my teaching expertise to the online space where I love to create community, teach, and inspire others to experience the transformative power of yoga.
