Yoga Pose Library

Reading Time: < 1 minute

It’s finally here! I decided to make better use of all the photos I take of myself in activewear and compiled them into a Yoga Pose Library. Please use this resource to expand your yoga practice whether you are a beginner or advanced practitioner.

All poses and entries that are linked will redirect you to a detailed tutorial on how to get into the pose and what its contraindications are. I will continue to add poses to this library when I can. If you have a pose in mind, please let me know! I am always open to shuffling things up.

If you’d like to practice with me in person, please visit my yoga teaching schedule for group yoga class dates and times. I am located in the Seattle, Washington area.
