About Us

Job responsibilities; family obligations, however joyous; the unexpected change of roles as we care for our parents; the surprising adjustments of retirement.  Finally, we reach the end of our rope physically, mentally or emotionally. That’s when yoga can help the most. At Halfmoon Yoga, we believe in bringing yoga to you, where you are today. With a welcoming community; with a sense of fun; with honest expectations; without competition; without tying yourself in knots; without trying to be perfect.  Join us for authentic Indian, breath-centered yoga in the tradition of Desikachar and Krishnamacharya.  Calming, centering yoga in a serene, spa-like atmosphere. Studio1Studio3 Because ability to pay should never prevent anyone from benefiting from yoga, Halfmoon Yoga holds free community classes at Christ Presbyterian Church.  We also support the not-for-profit outreach, “The Heifer Project”, which provides the tools impoverished families and communities worldwide need to generate economic stability and improve their lives.
Join us!  We can’t wait to see you!

She is currently enrolled in Halfmoon’s 300+hr Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Training course. Her style is unique, but influenced by many. Her classes seamlessly blend asana practice with timely lessons in yoga ethics and philosophy, all in good fun. Expect to dive deep, and emerge with a smile.
