I am a certified yoga instructor and a KRI certified Kundalini yoga instructor. I enjoy taking my students to places deep inside where they can tap into energy they didn’t know existed. I teach my students to always honor their bodies and rest when needed, ultimately with a goal to allow them to become their own best teacher.

Within the Mysore-style practice space relationship is paramount to fostering a balanced [and by extension a sustainable] approach toward the physical and mental aspects of a “practice." As an instructor, I strive to establish an environment of support, trust, and open communication. I facilitate the individual’s path of growth which these rich traditions hold and impart to all who seek their limitless knowledge. It is a journey aided by the wisdom imparted by those who practice(d).

My first goal is to help students relax. From there, you get to choose your own yoga adventure: my classes have elements of strength, balance, stretching, breathwork, and meditation, and are tailored to suit many levels. Through gentle cues on alignment and breath, I create a space for students to access calm, clarity of purpose, empowerment, and play. Yoga is a tool for liberation — nothing can take your self-connection from you! (E-RYT)

My goal as an instructor is to help students feel balanced, strong, and calm on their mats, able to respond to everyday challenges with more patience and self-compassion. As a runner and soccer player, I enjoy teaching athletes and other "tight and tired" folks, how to modify poses so they can balance effort with ease. I focus on building poses from the ground up for a strong foundation, but then weave in lightheartedness (and occasionally laughter) into our alignment-based practice so we can have some fun on our yoga journey.

Yoga teaches us to observe from steady ground, then ACT. What would we say if we knew the entire universe was listening? What would we do if we knew the stars were aligned with our actions? I am an experienced yoga educator and connector. Over the last decade, I've brought my whole-person approach to yoga teaching in Minneapolis & St. Paul, Minnesota, as well as in Denver, Colorado. I'm currently pursuing a Master of Science Degree in Yoga Therapy at Maryland University of Integrative Health.

I’m committed to holding a brave and accepting space for all kinds of people with various bodies, backgrounds, and abilities to find joyful movement and breathe deeply.  Practicing with me will offer you a sweet time to notice where you are at, to then be in your best place to love the world well in the way only you can. In 2006 I fell in love with all yoga offers and have sought ways to share! Since 2017 I have taught in and out of studios and from new students to veteran SilverSneakers yogis. In early Spring 2022 I completed my Yoga for All certification. I believe yoga is for you (yes you) and can't wait to see you there!

A wise person once said "yoga is serious fun" which I believe is a pretty good start in describing this transformative practice. It’s fun and hard work, sweat and tears! A glorious alchemy that leads practitioners into a deeper understanding of themselves and can result in more peace, contentedness and empathy, among other things. This last part happens naturally even without any dedicated intention over time! It is seriously awesome.

Regardless of who you are, what you look like, or whom you love, creating a space for everybody is very important.  Society places many expectations and roles as to how, what, when, where, and why you are doing something instead of simply being. Through conscious movement connected to breath, you have an opportunity to learn how to be in this moment. Yoga is an opportunity to create, rediscover, and connect to the experience of being human and overcome the obstacles that stand in your path. I invite you to join me.

Yoga is a gift in connecting - connecting to our breath and connecting to our inner awareness. Community classes also give us the opportunity to connect to the people around us. Yoga invites us to show up and check-in with our internal experience. My teaching goal is to support people in connecting to a place of steadiness and comfort in their yoga practice. I hope to share the experience of this connection in my classes.

I see every yoga practice as an opportunity to infuse daily living with vitality, balance and curiosity. I hold space for students to dive into the richness yoga has to offer, to explore their edges and listen deeply. Through intentional sequencing, breath practices and mediation, we awaken to what is alive within and walk more boldly in the world.

My teaching is a reflection of my life - I support students in awakening the full potential of body, mind and heart in service of Self-Realization. I aspire to transmit the timeless teachings of yoga authentically and accessibly. I specialize in in-depth study, practice and personalized/ therapeutic applications of yoga. www.vincentyoga.com.

Minneapolis-born, I am a yoga and meditation instructor with a rapidly expanding resumé. My mastery of language-arts provides accurate, relatable, and informed guidance for beginners and advanced practitioners. With transcendent descriptions my classes blend ancient wisdom and contemporary science that not only explain how to practice but also the many reasons why.
