Hi There! I’m Bonnie Golden and…
…I want you to practice your yoga!
I craft individual and group offerings for people across the lifespan. I have seen first-hand that yoga will enhance our health and well-being holistically: body, mind, and breath.
For each person I work with, I design a personalized yoga practice. I’ll interweave my vast experience and training in yoga, fitness, prenatal/postnatal, bone health, and more to serve you.
Why do I teach yoga?
I’ve been an adult educator my entire career, as a higher education faculty member and a yoga teacher. I’ve taught scores of rooms full of students like you ranging from age 18-89. Holistic yoga and related disciplines have helped me and my students survive and thrive through a number of different challenges in life.
I teach because I love sharing the tools for holistic healing that have helped me!
Healthy management of low bone density/osteoporosis through fracture/fall prevention
Back pain and chronic sacroiliac joint issues
Yoga for Pregnancy and Postpartum Recovery
Pelvic floor health
Anxiety and stress
Balance, flexibility, strength
Meditation that works for me
I’ve cultivated the perfect combination of skills, training, and experience to offer an interdisciplinary and creative approach so you can practice your yoga.
Don’t hesitate to reach out for any questions you might have!
