“Withdraw into yourself and look. And if you do not find yourself beautiful yet, act as does the creator of a statue that is to be made beautiful: he cuts away here, he smoothes there, he makes this line lighter, this other purer.... So do you also: cut away all that is excessive, straighten all that is crooked, bring light to all that is overcast, labour to make all one glow of beauty and never cease chiselling your statue.... until you shall see the perfect goodness surely established in the stainless shrine.” ― Plotinus
Hatha Yoga is more than just poses. And it’s not just a style of yoga that is often misunderstood as gentle or basic. It is a preparatory stage for cultivating a vessel for uncovering our innate state of wakefulness and non-separateness.
My Hatha Yoga classes are informed by Prana (vital breath), Bandhas (energetic locks) and the Marma system (vital energetic junctions), as well as physiological and anatomical understanding. These understandings serve to free the body of blockages, enhance the circulation of the life force, and stabilize the mind, to skillfully prepare the ground for more subtle work of Hatha Yoga.
nner-Body Yoga is not Iyengar yoga, although both feature cultivation of the felt-sense with an exploration of healthy alignment recognized from the inside out. Inner-Body Yoga uses the felt-sense to monitor the relationships between gravity lines, connective tissue tone and practitioner awareness to elicit the greatest expression of health available in each pose. This process empowers the practitioner to discern proper alignment and working methods from their own direct perception instead of relying upon alignment dictates.
KiCheon is an ancient Korean system of self-cultivation, spiritual discipline, and meditation.
It utilizes a balance of static and dynamic positions, and a unique method called “Yeok Geun” to target every joint of the body, and coordination between them, to cultivate a free flow of life force known as Gi (Ki, Chi, or Qi). Over time, one learns to harness and channel the powerful internal life force for physical and mental health, inner and outer strength, harmony and longevity.
Similar to Hatha Yoga, it is a body-centered practice to purify the body and cultivate internal energy, which then becomes the doorway into the mind and spirit.

Free-form dance is very simply, people dancing with no planned steps or moves, no choreography, no memorization, no goals, no expected form or sequence.
Here is a place to explore the world of moving, with thinking, without thinking, being who you are, in this moment.
There is nothing required. No steps, no instructions, no choreography. We support each other without words, on the dance floor, in being exactly how we each are. This is living spontaneity, a place to be without words, without plans.
