I am in the process of putting together a 6 part video series on Acu- Yoga (streamed online). This class integrates the knowledge of two ancient holistic methods of health maintenance, accu-pressure and yoga.
Yoga does this by using the breath and posture. Acu-pressure does this by manipulating energy through strategic points and meridians in the body.
Both modalities release tension and balance the energy of the body. When tension accumulates in the body it blocks energy from flowing properly, creating excess or deficiency in certain areas of the body. By combining the two modalities it creates a dynamic way to stimulate energy in the body, promoting healing from within.
Each Acu-yoga pose naturally presses and stretches certain nerve and muscles, releasing tension so that energy can flow freely. This balances the body and assists in healing.
Think of Acu-Yoga as a preventative care for your body. Use Acu-yoga as a means to radiant health. When Energy is balanced and circulating properly we feel alive, healthy, happy, and in harmony with ourselves.

Why take a yoga class?
Yoga has many benefits for the mind and body. The gentle stretching assists in limbering up the muscles of the body to prevent muscle strains. Many of the poses uses the bodies weight to strengthen bone density. The balance poses help promote better internal balance which leads to less falls. Yoga done consistently with a sensible eating plan will result in a toned body.
How does yoga help the mind?
The mind if left unattended or unchallenged will run you. If you are in a constant state of unawareness you are powerless to change. In yoga you are taught to sit silently, breath and listen to the internal chatter. Once you start listening you become surprised by what you hear. Much the fear, worries, self esteem issues of your life will bubble to the surface. It is through this gentle awareness that you will learn to shift unproductive chatter into ones that are more in line with how you want to live your life.
Is yoga a religion?
No. At first is appears just a simple stretching class with deep breathing that assists with stress relief, but as you progress further into the benefits you will realize it is much more. The word yoga means "union". Union of body, soul and spirit.
Do I have to be in good shape to take yoga?
No. In my classes you can start at any level. I encourage my students to do what they can and each session will become easier. I believe in listening to your own body and never pushing to a point of discomfort in any yoga pose. Some students will be naturally more flexible than others by virtue of their age and body structure. There is never a competition within the class. We are all at different levels and assist each other.
What do I need to bring to a class?
Yoga mat and a bottle of water. Wear loose comfortable clothing. Stress is optional, plan on leaving that at the class:)
