The benefits of yoga and meditation are accessible to everyone. My goal is to help each student find the approach that works best for them. My teaching methodology is not only nourishing and light-hearted, but practical and intelligent. When people understand the practices in their own body and it also makes sense intellectually, success is insured!
The progress. Watching people understand and progress both physically and mentally is incredibly gratifying, and why I teach something I am so passionate about myself.
Barbara is super patient (i'm a beginner) and explains things so they make sense. My yoga lessons with her were very beneficial to my other physical activities and I saw a lot of progress during our time together. I loved that is was both serious and fun. And although I'm not really a meditator, she threw some of that in as well and I have to say I loved how it made me feel. HIghly recommend!
Barbara provides a safe and calming space for all students to learn and explore yoga no matter what level. She is personable, professional and truly cares about your progress and experience. I highly recommend her for beginner or advanced yoga instruction.
Understanding the students particular goal is paramount to my approach. Both yoga and meditation provide an array of available methodologies and one of my fortés is finding the right means for each particular student's understanding and application. Communication is also a critical component, so I tend to ask a lot of questions about how my student is experiencing the practice both during our sessions and afterwards.
