Yoga for your Dosha – “DoshAsana” – Fee-based, currently on Zoom Saturday mornings, 9:30 – 10:30, $12/class
Deirdre’s approach to yoga will empower every student to get closer to their life force and appreciate how the mind-body and breath are seeking harmony.
“Yoga is not a pose – it is a condition of awareness and collaboration of all aspects of one’s being. At its best the condition of yoga is the greatest love affair of a life-time.
Deirdre is a masterful yoga teacher, referring to her classes as the yoga partnership of students learning together what the messages of the mind provoke in the body and what the messages of the body are seeking to awaken in the mind. All levels of experience are welcome, and while vigorous at times, you’ll be exploring and excavating illusion and cultivating truth in being.
