TRY yoga is a style I developed inspired by my former teachers “maintenance yoga” classes, by stretch therapy, with trauma informed agency ques given. I always aim for participants to feel safe, comfortable, and challenged if they choose to be. Because my background is yoga therapy, energy awareness, and stretch therapy, I also aim to offer relief! Relief from stress, physical, mental, and emotional.

I have been teaching chair yoga for 10 years!! Every time I take a vacation, my body misses it. Over the years I have developed many sequences to utilize literally every body part, so that they keep working!! The common request in chair yoga is “head to toe” and we get it all. Sometimes, we don’t have control over certain body parts, but we still benefit from thinking about it, and strengthening that mind body connection. Chair yoga has helped students maintain their ability to shoulder check when driving, increase pain tolerance, to exercise with degenerative disease or any limitation. That is my favorite thing about chair yoga, anyone can do it, and any one will benefit from it:)

Suitable for students comfortable with balance, and getting up and down to the floor smoothly. We will work on a variety of yoga exercises, to create a balance between strength and flexibility, and with confidence so you can practice at home safely.
A movement based class inspired by the LYT method. Every class begins with a reset to stabilize our core and then we move into a challenging alignment focused flow. This class will improve posture over time, increase energy and leave you feeling empowered!
