I love yoga because…
I personally have found healing and deeper meaning in my life through yoga, as both a practice and way of life.
are welcoming, encouraging and challenging. My intention in every class is to provide the opportunity for my students to be healed of the stresses of daily life through their asana and meditation.
When I’m not teaching…
I am blessed to be coaching, spending time with my family, hiking with my two crazy dogs and reading books on the latest in neuroscience & mindfulness (seriously!)
My favorite yoga pose…
is Pigeon Pose. As a runner, tight hips and hamstring muscles make Pigeon Pose challenging (even painful in the early days). But, utilizing the breath and surrendering to this pose has helped me to experience the possibilities of yoga as something transformative.
I'm inspired by…
people’s generosity, the change of seasons, how the human brain works, my kids, my pooches, and most of all by my husband-selfless and caring, who gets up every day at 4:40 am and heads into his 14+ hour workday and never complains!
Eileen McCabe instructs the following:
Candlelight Yin/Restorative Yoga
Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. Poses are passive and held for a longer duration. Props are utilized and the class is suitable for all levels.
Level I/II is for beginners with some basic experience, those with some experience in the foundational poses and those looking for a less intense practice. Level 2 variations of poses will present more challenge. Both options are given.
