**Please note that I hold myself to the highest standards and believe in having the utmost integrity when it comes to teaching others and serving my community.  My classwork and chosen certifications were not gained in a one-day workshop.  I carefully select well-respected and governed licensees by nationally recognized certifying bodies like YOGA ALLIANCE, ACE, and the AMTA.  I work hard to embody my practices and will always do everything in my power with best of intentions for everyone involved,**

Benefits of doing Outdoor YOGA (scientifically backed):


When spending time outdoors, connecting with the EARTH and nature the following may happen:

  • Your Vitamin D levels will go up

  • Your Concentration will improve

  • You may Heal Faster

  • Improves Self-esteem and Feelings of Well-being

  • Boosts Creativity

  • Boosts Energy

Our immune system works its hardest when it's supercharged with electrons, which can be obtained in abundance in a surprisingly simple way: by being barefoot on the earth which, we do in YOGA. Because our feet are locations for the connected muscular webbing known as fascia, absorbing energy through the feet—a practice called grounding or earthing—promotes healing throughout the entire body.

Additional benefits of joining a YOGA class is that it builds community.  KARMA YOGA is a way of giving back and getting involved in your community.  At Sunshine Upon You  we promote caring for others and being loving.  We want to cause a ripple affect.  Believing that small gestures such as cleaning up litter that was not placed by us, or, by doing all we can to reduce our own waste and impact on the Earth will set a tone that others can follow.  We can make a difference and being a part of a community that supports these ideas.  It is something you can feel so good about and will make others feel good too!  That's all about creating some good KARMA and being beautiful beings!
