Yoga Philosophy. The main philosophy of yoga is simple: mind, body and spirit are one and cannot be clearly separated. I deeply believe that people need to experience life on a mental and physical level. For me yoga is the perfect expression of both. I want to teach yoga to help people discover themselves, to connect with their breath and their inner sanctuary of peace. I hope to guide students to see that there is power in softening, grace in stability and that life is in every breadth.
Yoga student: I found a sanctuary at Yoga in the Pearl, Portland, Oregon and became a dedicated student of Power Yoga. My teachers included the Lauren Ingram, Tiffany Cruikshank, and Sarah Lakey.
