Regardless of your abilities, beginner or experienced,
man or woman, shape or size, all are welcome.  
Classes are aligned with the traditional roots of yoga
and are accessible, challenging and uplifting.  This is
your place to tune in and chill out.  
I honor the love, truth and kindness that
is within you because it is also within
me. In sharing these things there is no
distance or difference between us. We
are the same.  We are one.

My first and favorite teacher was my mother. As a
child, I watched her practice intriguing and beautiful
poses. I found physical and emotional relief as a yoga
student in the 1990s.  I committed to a practice and  
physical misalignments corrected and overuse injuries
healed. What wasn't anticipated was the lifting of
anxiety and dissipation of grief.  I could finally
breathe.  
I am grateful beyond words for whatever tiny role I may
play in helping students discover their light and mean it
with all my heart when I say, Namaste:
Yoga has changed my life, in different ways, over and
over again.  And, I've witnessed profound changes in
others as their bodies rehabilitate, minds open and
hearts heal.  Must be something to this life changing
body/mind science; Five Thousand years isn't a fad.  
I uncovered  strength, confidence and wisdom, and
found myself exploring things that at one time would
have been unthinkable.  In 2001, I
began teaching.   
I bring 15 years of teaching experience to my classes
and draw from a variety of yoga styles including
Vinyasa, Asthanga, Hatha, Kundalini, Tao, Yin and
restore as well as core strength based on principles of
Joseph H. Pilates.  My classes are also influenced by
many local, national and international teachers and
studios.   
Yoga is a practice which means that no one ever gets
to the top or graduates.  It is not a workout although it
has positive effects on the physical body, nor is it a
religion although it can help to connect to others and
to a higher power.  Rather, it is the way to tap into the
light that lies within and it is in that light where you will
find all that you are seeking.  Its only requirement is
that you show up and roll out your mat.  
In the words of Ashtanga Founder K. Pattabhi Jois,
"Practice and all is coming."
