I've been helping people live more comfortably in their skin for over two decades. I'm the founder and owner of Stamford Yoga Center (Stamyo), where we emphasize moving well over classical yoga postures and Body Positive Yoga. Moving well means that everything you do on your yoga mat should translate into making everyday life better.
I'm often told my yoga studio, and yoga classes, are comfortable, safe places to be, which makes me feel really good. The world could use more comfortable, safe places, don't you think?
Fancy-shmancy poses? Not so much my thing, but if they're your thing I can refer you.
For me, studying anatomy is a spiritual practice. The human body—your body— is wondrous; it's warm, sophisticated, intelligent, and alive. Making your body required every single one of your ancestors.
If the human body is sacred then studying it is a sacrament. Yoga poses are questions to ask your body. Expect as many questions as answers when you take my class.
(You can also expect an uplifting message, surgically precise anatomical instruction and inquiry, a little flow here and there—and the occasional profanity.)
I primarily offer programming at home at Stamyo, but I travel around a bit too. You'll find both yoga students and yoga instructors enrolled in my programs.
One of my specialties is offering private yoga sessions for people who want to address therapeutic concerns.
I work with elite athletes who looking for better performance based results, or to rehabilitate injuries. Stamford Yoga Center gets great results using yoga with young and/or elite athletes.
My studio also offers corporate yoga in Stamford, CT. We'll send an instructor to your location so that your employees benefit from yoga, and you benefit by having a focused, efficient staff.
