Fairview Yoga

Come and enjoy an outdoor yoga practice on a deck among the trees and birds, overlooking the San Francisco Bay.  Gaze down a hill to a quiet canyon with a pond and seasonal stream, relax on a chair or a yoga mat and let the calming Beauty of Nature seep into your bones.  Release stress and strain through movement therapy tailored to your body.  Join a meditation circle and help create a supportive community for enlightening our spirits.  Learn about myriad natural ways to build health and wellbeing.  Enjoy an escape from the urban scene, right here in your own back yard!

Free Yoga!

Please contact me if you are interested in joining my free periodic yoga sessions at the Fairview Yoga Retreat Center. We will be outside under the sky, in the fresh air, on a personal rug on the deck overlooking the bay.

The yoga is gentle and aimed at relieving stress, gently building strength and creating peace of mind. It includes breath exercises, awareness exercises and soothing flow practices as well as mindful held poses, moving into stillness and guided meditation.

I’ll be practicing on weekend mornings and occasionally at dusk, as the weather permits. I’d love to share my practices with you if you are interested in doing yoga for your health and wellbeing.

Yoga Therapy and Ayurveda

I am also available for individual yoga therapy sessions and/or Ayurvedic consultations. These are appropriate if you have specific health concerns or conditions that would be best addressed through a tailored yoga program and/or diet and lifestyle coaching that is designed specifically for you. These programs involve 3 preliminary sessions. First, we will design an initial protocol to practice on your own (yoga therapy and/or diet or other healthful practices) and then we will meet at least twice more to evaluate how you are responding and how the practice may be modified as you go to optimize your progress and enhance the benefits. Suggested fee is $150 for the first three sessions, offered on a sliding scale and no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Yoga for Seniors

I currently teach yoga to seniors at Mt. Eden Presbyterian Church and Eden Issei Senior Housing in Hayward. I am interested in expanding my work with seniors, especially in the area of yoga therapy and health coaching. Please contact me if you are a senior looking for a yoga teacher who will take the time and attention to help you establish a practice tailored to meet your needs and goals.

My purpose

I intend to spend the rest of my life learning, practicing, and teaching about these healthy practices to optimize my own health and wellbeing and that of my friends, family and students. As I once read on a Yogi Tea bag tab, “To learn, read; To know, practice; To master, teach”. I am blessed to have continuing opportunities to do all three and I welcome you to join me on this path toward an ever-unfolding sense of wholeness, wellbeing and joie de vivre.
