In 1999 I discovered yoga when a friend asked me to go with her to a yoga class at the gym. I was hooked after the very first class. I wanted to know everything about yoga. The poses challenged me, and the philosophy intrigued me. In 2004 I took my first yoga teacher training, and in 2007 I made my first trip of many to Mysore, India to learn this ancient pathway towards enlightenment.
Since then, I have been teaching yoga in gyms, studios, in people's homes, and online. In 2011 I lead my first Yoga Teacher Training. My small and intimate yoga training groups allow students to get individualized attention and be able to have a close relationship with me, their teacher and guide.
My personal journey is to teach to individuals and small groups, although I still lead large classes of students in the yoga studio. I feel that my small group and private students get a better understanding of yoga and the many benefits it can offer when they have a close relationship with a knowledgeable teacher.
In 2016, after my first 4 trips to Mysore, I received Authorization to teach Ashtanga yoga from the Ashtanga Yoga Institute. In 2007 I completed my first 200-hour teacher training course, and soon afterward completed a 300-hour yoga teacher advanced course with Yoga Alliance Accreditation.
Currently, I run a small yoga school with several exceptional teachers leading small group yoga teacher trainings.
In addition, in 2020 I completed my 300-Hour Meditation Teacher Certification, and currently guide individual students and groups in office settings (in-person & virtually) through meditation practices to help them calm the body and clear their minds.
If you are looking to heal your body, and calm your mind, contact me for group or individual lessons. Each inquiry will be met without judgment, wherever you are on your path in life. Before our first meeting, we will chat on the phone to discuss your goals and reasons for pursuing meditation, yoga, or both. If the consultation goes well, we will begin lessons right away in a manner that is acceptable and convenient for you.
I look forward to hearing from you.
