Public Classes

Currently, all public classes are taught at Purple Yoga in Long Beach and Fullerton. Classes are for all levels; options are given to accomodate students independent of previous experience. Please do not eat before class. No need to sign up or register.

The classes do not teach Shadow Yoga (see below). However, they can be used as a preparation until you feel ready to sign up for a course.

Private Class

Private classes are very effective for students who want to improve their practice, or work with an injury. You will get most out of a private class if you have been taking classes with me for a while and then require additional attention when feeling "stuck".

If you are interested in a private class and are a student at Purple Yoga, please call Purple Yoga and book the private class through them. Otherwise, contact me directly.

Workshops and Courses

Workshops are designed to give you a deeper insight into a specific aspect of Yoga like alignment or placement of your hands. All of my workshops can be taken independent of the Yoga style you practice and will be useful even if you don't take my public classes.

Courses are for students who are ready to make a deeper commitment towards Yoga, including the willingness to do a daily practice at home. This practice can be quite short to begin with, the quality of the engagement is much more important than its duration. These courses allow for more personal instructions and deeper adjustments than possible in a regular class setting. Over the course of a few weeks, the individual classes build on each other.

Shadow Yoga Courses

The traditional Hatha Yoga form Shadow Yoga as imparted to me by my teacher Shandor Remete is a practical teaching of the classical Hatha Yoga texts. I use the term Hatha Yoga here in its original meaning which refers to the preparation of the body and mind with the goal of attaining Rāja Yoga.

Because of its complexity, I teach Shadow Yoga only in courses which require students to also practice at home on a daily basis.
