200 yoga teacher training completed at the Dallas Yoga Center, Dallas, Texas, June 2019.
Registered with the Yoga Alliance as a RYT200.
Continue to be an avid student of yoga teachings to better serve my community of students.
Previous experience as a trainer in the business world and as a ESL teacher help me guide my students and focus on their needs in yoga practice.
One of my guiding principles in teaching beginners is: “It is not how well one does a pose but rather how does a pose feel and what is it doing for someone who is new to yoga." The goal is for students to gain self-confidence in yoga practice, to explore and understand individual abilities and limitations, so as to develop awareness of movement and be able to enjoy the benefits of yoga practice both on and off the mat in every day activities,
I offer a blend of traditional Hatha yoga, Vinyasa and Movement Awareness. Instruction is focused on giving students the opportunity to practice yoga at their own pace and ability by offering modifications and creating awareness of functional movement. Restorative yoga is an option offered for those that need a more relaxing and focused practice.
I offer classes in English and Portuguese, and use my Dutch and other languages to help guide students where necessary if English or Portuguese is not their first language.
