In 1998, I took my first yoga class and began teaching asana classes in 2002. I study and practice Hatha Yoga in the tradition of H. H. YogiRaj Swami Bua Ji of India, under the generous tutelage of Patricia D’Angelo.
I am an initiate of the Himalayan Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy, where I received my 200 and 500 hour teaching certifications and draw on their expertise in pranayama and meditation.
I have been certified by Baxter Bell M.D. and Melina Meza to teach Yoga For Healthy Aging. I am also certified to teach Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga.
These additional certifications support and inform my goal of sharing the benefits of yoga with everyone, regardless of age or mobility. Classes are welcoming and taught within a friendly atmosphere.
My mission as a yoga teacher is to inspire all students so that they may experience more strength, balance, flexibility and comfort within their bodies. I use asana to begin the discussion of the eight limbs of yoga, and invite students to look within themselves and discover their own path.
