I offer private classes, small group sessions and workplace yoga.
I specialize in Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, Women's Yoga and Meditation.
During a one-on-one session I will customize the class and use elements of Yoga Therapy to meet your individual needs.
When our mind and body is in balance, we generally feel energized, happy, vital, full of life and have a sense of clarity of mind. When we are 'out of balance', we tend to feel anxious, short-tempered, angry, restless and often overreact to simple situations. Hatha yoga is all about rewiring your energy to bring back a sense of balance, harmony and connection so you can respond rather than react to life's situations.
In this classic yoga practice you will focus on finding the mental and physical balance between effort and ease. You will move through poses mindfully but dynamically to engage and strengthen the muscles, improve circulation and build endurance. You will also hold longer postures to allow for deep release of tension in the connective tissues (think: ligaments, fascia, tendons) which tend to be relatively stiff (think hips, inner thighs).
You will bath your internal organs in lots of breath (prana) which helps calming the mind, opening you up to new possibilities.
YIN / RESTORATIVE YOGA
Our modern lives are filled with stress and anxiety. So many demands and commitments. So many beautiful ambitious goals clashing with too much self-doubt and fear. Do you constantly feel like you are living in the pressurized world struggling to find satisfaction, joy and happiness? This class is all about detoxing your nervous system and providing techniques that will allow you to navigate the world in a balanced and mindful way.
In this class you will explore long held therapeutic yoga postures and breathwork that cultivate peaceful relationship with your mind. We will focus on soothing the organs and glands involved in stress hormone production, while simultaneously nourishing the parasympathetic nervous system and all the organs that help you renew and restore.

WOMAN'S BALANCE YOGA
Women's yoga is such a special practice and is open to all levels of students who identify as female. This soothing, gentle class will calm your nervous system while activating the flow of blood and energy to specific organs and endocrine glands that are involved in maintaining hormonal balance. In this class you will learn more about your female body and develop a stronger connection with the natural cycles.
The gentle, longer held postures promote healthy menstruation and menstrual cycle, as well as helps alleviating the PMS symptoms such as heaviness, bloatedness, lower back pain, irritability, mood swings, anxiety and general discomfort
More than just a good physical workout
I have been practicing yoga on and off for over 5 years and have tried a wide range of studios and styles. Along the way I’ve been exposed to many special teachers. Gunta is one such teacher - she combines a sense of gentleness in even the most rigorous of asanas. Gunta is detailed and meticulous in her approach, but made me feel that there was a warm outer layer to her class, and more than just a good physical workout. I highly recommend her style and approach!
