A native of the east end, and a Channing Daughter, I have completed over 500 hours of teacher training with Colleen Saidman and Rodney Yee. I like to sequence dynamic alignment into a flow class that focuses the mind and ignites heat in the body. I want my students to enjoy the most challenging postures and leave feeling relaxed, clear and even. When I'm not on my mat (or your mat), I'm probably in a garden drawing lots of earthly inspiration for my asana practice.

After a short tune in, I will start the class with a traditional vinyasa flow through sun salutations to greet the day, get our energy flowing, and to synchronize our movements with our breath. I will guide you through through familiar asanas combined with some lesser known, but powerful anti-aging techniques that stimulate the meridians to increase the quantity and quality of prana to the vital organs. Our vinyasa flow will bring us to the ground where will set the navel, strengthen the lower back, and increase space in and around our hips, winding down and working towards total stillness.

This is an open level class with more challenging positions presented optionally. The more you put into this practice, the more you will be able to surrender to the sacred sounds of the gong during the final relaxation. We will tune out with the prayer for love, peace, and light to hold the space for our highest and best heart-centered intentions for the day.

Bruce started practicing yoga at the age of 15 to optimize his body and mind for surfing and to heal from injuries when he pushed himself too far. His first certification was in 2006, Warrior Yoga, a power yoga that blends the principles of martial arts and yoga into a complete healing arts discipline. Bruce then travelled the path of Kundalini, the yoga of awareness, and Naam Yoga, the yoga of sound. Shakti Naam, Bruce's latest certification, is known as the yoga of immortality to those who practice it in the east, but is mostly unknown to the western world. "The practice of Shakti Naam can grant access to an endless energy supply that has the potential to revitalize the blood, reduce stress, increase strength, balance the hormonal and nervous systems, fortify the heart and increase one's lifespan." His teaching will challenge the body, tune the mind, and allow the spirit to integrate the benefits of this unique practice with the sacred sound of the gong in final relaxation.
