Tina’s life got sweeter when yoga came into it eight years ago. Being a massage therapist for 20 years and enjoying the gym, yoga at first was all about the exercise and getting stronger and more
flexible, but it soon became much more. Being committed to her own practice, she will
always consider herself a student first. Tina loves the mindfulness and the work “in” that
takes us into now. Her style of teaching is slow. Saturating and rooting in the pose to
navigate with breath to steady the mind and the body. Sprinkled with meditation and
inspiration to help bring yogis to the present moment. She gives options (not
obligations) to deepen the pose but to always honor the body. Tina wants her students to
keep deep steady breaths and to do what is right for them and their practice. She says to
“Remember that there is no such thing as being bad at yoga. We are all students, and we always will be.”
