My practice began mostly out of curiosity regarding the physical practice of
yoga. I had been training for triathlons and realized my natural
biomechanics were going to cause injuires over time so looked for an
activity with more longevity. I continued, however, mostly because of the
mental, emotional, and spiritual effects of yoga. It has become a way of life
and guiding force for me since then.
With over 15 years of experience teaching, my practice is eclectic drawing
from yoga traditions such as hatha, vinyasa, power, Iyengar, and Kundalini,
while also incorporating my training in naturopathic medicine, Ayurveda, and
Jyotish. My own daily practice is long and deep offering personal insights
into the yoga experience.
I have been fortunate to teach yoga to many people over the years and see
how it supports children in learning how to self-soothe, women in becoming
mothers, people with injuries recovering their physical health, others with
cancer maintaining their center through a challenging emotional process.
At it's best yoga is a deep, authentic vehicle of transformation for the body,
mind, heart and spirit...this is the yoga I aspire to teach.
