Why Yoga with Flamenco?
Because Flamenco builds strength and resilience as we go, so too does it challenge us to develop the ability to trust ourselves, to face our fears, and to become a spiritual warrior ready to bring our full selves to the table. This process is not easy, especially when we may have learned to be hard on ourselves in our pursuits and many of us may have a fear of doing it wrong, or looking silly in front of others. Additionally, as we progress in our studies we develop strength and endurance befitting an athlete and need to care for our bodies accordingly, for injury prevention and longevity.
The physical and mental/emotional skills we develop with Yoga are the perfect complement for befriending our bodies and minds as we progress with Flamenco. This leads to increased body awareness, balance and muscular support/mobility, while bringing a balance of drive, perseverence, playfulness and enjoyment to the process.
Hello! I am a RYT-500, E-RYT 1000 Yoga teacher and performing artist with over 25 years experience as a professional in the field of somatic arts, including Yoga, Flamenco and Belly dance. I am a lover of movement, an anatomy and philosophy nerd, and a professional Flamenco dancer and teacher.
I believe that our bodies hold an innate capacity and wisdom for healing, if we can but learn how to truly listen and communicate. The art of Flamenco is for me both a personal practice, a creative outlet, and one of the great loves of my life that continues to challenge, delight and inspire me every day. I am passionate about incorporating somatics and mindfulness techniques into my work with Yoga and Flamenco, so that we can get out of our own way and learn in a way that is fearless and fun. I am blessed to guide others in the sacred work of tending and befriending their bodies with dance and Yoga for a more fulfilled and embodied life.
