    Her teaching style is eclectic, a fusion of breath work, vinyasa (flowing linked movements), mantras, meditation and Thai massage. She focuses on energetic anatomy along with physical alignment to create an experience of mindfulness and reflection of the individual as not simply a human “machine” but as a celestial being. She refers to her students as Jedis and her classes as #JediTraining.
