What is the meaning of yoga?

What does Yoga mean to you?

"to unite"
"to tie the strands of the mind together"
"to attain what was previously unattainable"
"acting in such a way that all of our attention is directed toward the activity in which we are currently engaged"
"to be one with the divine"
                                      -The Heart of Yoga by T. K. V. Desikchar

Welcome to Yoga with Effie.

I specialize in private yoga lessons in the comfort of your own home.

I am a highly trained and certified yoga instructor passionate about helping people and am committed to promoting great health and wellness for the mind, body and spirit.  I have been practicing yoga for the past ten years and currently practice various lineages of yoga including Hatha, Ashtanga and Kundalini which I bring to my teachings.

I motivate students to build a deeper connection with themselves and I love to bring a burst of energy to every session.  I like to create an environment that inspires healthy bodies, minds and spirits.  My calming meditations will leave you relaxed and at peace with yourself.  

Regarding my other passion, I give warmth, compassion, and insight to patients as a psychotherapist dealing with chronic pain, anxiety and depression.  I have always been an active person with a background in competitive gymnastics and dance.

Smiles and blessings,
