The word prajna in Sanskrit means insight, deep understanding, and mindfulness. It suggests a dynamic, embodied wisdom that permeates every cell and every tissue in the body. Prajna Yoga is a profound journey inward. I, as a Prajna Yoga teacher, believe that yoga is a pathway that begins in the outer layers of body and mind and navigates inward to the mystical, subtle and rarely seen interior. Prajna Yoga classes combine meditative practice with the power and grace of asana training. In a process that requires sensitivity and inner listening, we will collectively explore the sheaths of connective tissue, muscle and bone in order to bring about greater wakefulness, luminosity and space within.
Hatha Yoga is the dawn of the practice that awakens more subtle practices. I experience this practice as the sun rising in the body, with emphasis on physical effort (not strain) cresting to breath work, energetic engagement, and meditation. This class draws from a variety of traditions but is inspired predominately from the Iyengar, Ashtanga Vinyasa, and Prajna Yoga paths. I find this inclusive approach encourages me to offer practices that most effectively meet students where they're at. I encourage heavy propping as I find, more and more, that our fast-paced and overwhelming world doesn’t lend itself gracefully to supporting oneself, let along asking for support. Using supports in yoga, both physical and metaphorical, creates a bridge to using supports in the rest of life.
