My relationship with yoga began with my first class in 2000, and like every good relationship, it has grown stronger and more committed with time.  I completed my teacher training in Orlando, Florida in 2004. I’ve been fortunate to have studied with many inspired teachers since then, and have been committed to these practices, day in and day out, for many years. I am a perpetual student and always studying, reflecting and learning! I am also a student of Buddhism, and have a regular meditation practice. In my experience, Buddhist philosophy dovetails beautifully with the teachings of yoga.

I’m most interested in how the practices of yoga allow us to be more embodied, more connected to ourselves and the world, and more at ease in our life. In a physical sense, yoga asana practice should be sustainable over the long-haul, and help us to be functional in our bodies. Strength, mobility, and varied movement are important for whole body health. In my classes, expect some traditional yoga poses, mixed with other kinds of movement. My classes follow my own study and practice, which is always evolving — but I endeavor to provide a clear and steady combination of feeling, breath, alignment and awareness.
