Yoga has long been known as an effective way to both heal the body and calm the mind, but many people are put off by its reputation as "hardcore" or intimidating. We want to change that.
That's why we created Lotus Theory Gentle Yoga. This program is designed to help you gradually move into a more active lifestyle.
The low-impact nature of this program means that anyone can join in. It's ideal for beginners who are looking to ease into their practice or those looking to incorporate yoga into their lives without jumping right into a full-on studio class. And because we incorporate meditation into movements throughout the class, you'll be able to engage both your mind and body at once.
By the end of each session, you'll leave feeling calm, empowered and physically stronger than ever. And with each practice, you'll begin to feel mentally stronger as well as well-versed in techniques that stretch and strengthen the body, help connect breath with body and make us more mindful.
Always consult with your physician before starting any exercise program

My yoga journey started over 15 years ago as a college student in New York City. Like many, I was a bit hesitant about this new experience. Fortunately over the years, I found myself drawn closer and closer to the principles of yoga. With each practice, my love for yoga grew and began to understand I was working on myself, physically, mentally and emotionally. Yoga has helped me to settle my mind. I took my passion a step further and completed my Yoga Teacher Training with the Yoga and Ayurveda Center.
As a yoga instructor and working mom, with countless daily challenges, I want to share my love for the practice, spread positive energy and hope to teach others to find their peace, to live strong in body and mind and to be kind to yourself, always.
