Paula

Paula uses a mindfulness based practice to guide students into a place of receptivity that develops sensitivity, intuition and self-acceptance. Paula has a background in counseling, rehab and bodywork. She has been practicing yoga regularly since 1982 and meditates using the Pureland Buddhist tradition. Her yoga background is diverse and she continues to study with senior teachers believing a beginner's mind is a fresh mind. She believes that yoga is a medicine for the body as well as the mind, and she incorporates her background as a yoga therapist and mindfulness based psychotherapist into her private practice.

 

She has training through the Iyengar tradition, certified at the Intermediate Jr.2 level, and the Scarvelli method through Namaste International, and is registered at the 500 hour level with Yoga Alliance.



Paula instructs the following:
  • Iyengar Level 2-3
  • Level 2-3 classes presume students are familiar with intermediate yoga postures (including inversions and backbends). In these classes you will use your knowledge of postures and breathing to practice exciting, physically demanding and challenging sequences and variations.

    The pace of these classes is faster, you will go deeper, and your teacher will help you achieve breakthroughs in your practice and your self-awareness. We recommend you have a year of solid yoga under your mat before you join 2-3 classes. Expect to be transformed.


     


  • Iyengar Level 1-2
  • Focus is on correct posture, alignment & symmetry. Poses are refined with the use of props. Beginner and Level 1
    classes will introduce students to a range of beginning postures including standing postures, and preparations for inversions.

    Level 1-2 classes will delve further into more advanced postures and students should be comfortable in inversions.

    In this series we will have a chance to connect with each other in a supportive group, practicing chakra based mind/body techniques. We will be reading an excellent book written by Jacquelyn Small and practice some of Anodea Judith’s work, both teachers of Paula’s.

    Through sharing in a group setting, lecture, book study and self-reflection we notice where the energy is held in our body when we are fearful jealous, insecure, sad, or anxious as emotion is held our connective tissue.

    Observing our energetic charge we can shift cellular memories that are stuck, depleted or scattered. We are able to connect & experience being in our body in a new way. Witnessing our thoughts/feelings together and allowing them to be acknowledged without judgment, we release the tension of our holding patterns to relax into a deeper connection to ourselves. The sacred place that has been waiting to be touched by self-acceptance. A forgiveness that welcomes grace and the reawakening to sense our life force in a more connected way.
