I teach yoga because I enjoy fun we have in class as well as the way we feel after class. I am happy to begin teaching a 7pmBalance yoga class on Wednesday nights. Please note that there is no morning class Wednesday, May 26 that class has been moved to 7pm.

These spring evenings provide an awesome opportunity to open ourselves to balance and peace. Did you know that my intention for class is just that? -That we experience balance and peace within.

We begin our yoga practice by centering ourselves and setting our intention. An intention is a dedication, prayer or positive affirmation. Using intention in our yoga brings us to the present moment. Opening the door for us to tune into the subtly of our mind, body & spiritual needs.

I invite you to explore the power of intention throughout your day. To the left are links to articles about living in the present moment and using intention. Below I have included sample intentions that you may find beneficial.

I invite you to use intention throughout your day. We begin and end our yoga practice with this powerful tool. Intention can be used in small and big ways. Below are some intentions or affirmations that might speak to you:
  • I love fearlessly.
  • I trust myself enough to let the voice within me be stronger than any voices outside.
  • I am beautiful inside and out.
  • I am worthy of receiving love and support.
  • I use my time wisely.
  • I make healthy choices.
  • I am strong.
  • Vulnerability is strength, today I will be vulnerable by accepting love & support from others.
  • I am peaceful.
  • I am is more than enough.
  • I find joy through service. I find love through letting go.
  • I am worthy of receiving all of life's splendid gifts.
  • I am balanced.
  • I am grounded.
  • I enjoy the present moment.

To practice yoga with intention, moves your heart as well as those around you.
