Super Core Classes are specifically designed to strengthen your core and deepen your flexibility. Most poses are relatively easy and straightforward, and movement is choreographed to music. Each class has a theme that's in alignment with a particular idea or philosophy as related to yoga, or the union of mind, body and spirit. My class goals are to empower you to physically and mentally overcome life's challenges and find your joy. I teach modified versions of the sun salutation for those with specific injuries and physical challenges. The classes are based on the vinyasa style of yoga (also known as power yoga), but certain aspects of bikram and traditional strength training are incorporated as well.
I am the founder of Super Core Yoga, and I am a certified 200-hour Yoga Alliance instructor and a long time practitioner.
I became an instructor to pursue my interest and passion for yoga, and also to heal my back, or at least buffer it with muscle. I have several serious back issues, including two deformed vertebrae, which cannot be fixed. My doctor gave me two options, 1) strengthen your core or 2) get invasive back surgery.
Shortly after the diagnosis, I enlisted in a yoga teaching training course and developed sequences in alignment with the strength training routines that my physical therapist had recommended. After five weeks of training, my pain had nearly disappeared, my body had changed shape, and I could calm myself when under stress. I also discovered how much I loved teaching and creating classes. Yoga is a wonderful resource for renewal, recovery and reflection, and I hope can offer that to my students.
