Pilates, Yoga Therapy, Yoga Tune Up®
Join me in Dubai for all levels vinyasa with alignment classes, Therapeutic Yoga, Yoga Tune Up®; and, Reformer and Pilates mat classes!
Learn to embody the body you live in! My classes are alignment based and combine exercises and poses from Pilates, Yoga and Physical Therapy to increase mobility, lessen or eradicate pain and improve performance. All classes end with at least 10 minutes of relaxation and breath work to help switch off the on switch! I also use Yoga Tune Up® Therapy balls for myo-fascial release via self massage.
I am certified from the PhysicalMind Institute on Pilates mat and apparatus and am an E-RYT with Yoga Tree San Francisco. I am an Integrated Yoga Tune Up® Teacher (www.yogatuneup.com), and am registered at the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). I also have hundreds of hours assisting my mentor Harvey Deutch, PT, at his clinic, Redhawk PT San Francisco, in teacher trainings and workshops, and retreats in Esalen, Big Sur.
I know from personal experience that you never wat to stop moving. Two spine surgeries brought me to Pilates and Yoga and have taught me what a gift it is to not only be able to breathe, but also to move, and to feel.
I have experience working with individuals with various spinal conditions, including herniation, fusion and stenosis as well as hip and knee replacement, ACL surgery and frozen shoulder. I combine my knowledge of Pilates, Yoga and kinesiology to tailor private sessions to specific needs.
