Moira, owner and director of River Rock Yoga and Pilates in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, is a Certified, Professional Level Kripalu Yoga Teacher & Teacher Trainer. Her classes offer students compassionate self-observation, gentle alignment cues and empowering vinyasa flow. Breath awareness and exploratory, joint freeing movement are also emphasized. The nurturing, supportive environment, she creates in her sessions, inspire an open body and a relaxed mind. She has been teaching yoga full time since 2001. Moira is honored to have taken over 200 hours of alignment based yoga & philosophy workshops with Doug Keller. She has also studied with Erich Schiffman, and finds his freedom based yoga inspirational. Moira completed Shiva Rea’s Vinyasa Flow Teacher training in 2004. It continues to be a major influence on her teaching style, as do her studies of Jivamukti yoga with Sharon Gannon & David Life.
“I encourage students to make peace with present moment, and to recognize their innate wisdom, and wholeness.” Moira is continually inspired by the transformational, healing capability, and peace generated by the practice of yoga. She sees the connection of mind, body and breath as means to experience integration in each moment.
Moira received an MSW degree from the University of Southern Mississippi, is a licensed social worker, and is pursuing her LCSW. Moira has been using yoga professionally with patients and clients, and military personnel in clinical and medical settings since 2010. Her sessions are designed to help ease symptoms of anxiety, depression, panic disorder, PTSD and substance addiction. An English Literature graduate of The Colorado College, she has minors in Dance and Elementary Education. For the past twelve years, she has joyfully co-directed the 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training Program at River Rock Yoga with her sweet friend, Laura Tyree of Dragonfly Yoga.
