I’ve been practicing yoga for over 19 years, and am now a certified Structural Yoga Teacher. My Teacher is Zoe Kowalchuk.
Structural Yoga seeks to adapt yoga to fit your body’s abilities. It is yoga adapted to your body – not everyone else’s – and seeks to align your body within its limits. Structural Yoga also emphasizes Vinyasa (the practice of flowing transition between poses), breath work, and developing strength through asanas (poses).
I continue to expand my yoga knowledge by attending workshops, classes and monthly Sadhana (“journey”) with local, national and international teachers. Most recently, I have attended the Iowa City Yoga Festival, the Estes Park, CO Yoga Journal Conference, the Denver Chant Fest, Sounds True – Wake Up Festival
Yoga is very grounding for me. As I have gotten older, and busier with a wider variety of tasks, my practice keeps me centered. Before focusing my time and energy on teaching yoga, I worked as a photographer at newspapers and exhibited art shows at galleries. Now, I’m currently raising two very energetic young boys.
My logo is from my family name. The GRIFFIN, a mythical creature with the body of a lion and wings of a eagle, has its origins in the ancient east, where it was said to guard the gold of India. In Christian iconography it symbolizes the dual nature of Jesus – the divine represented by the bird, and the human by the lion.
