I was attracted to yoga because of its vigorous physical expression yet calming and meditative qualities. After practicing for 7 years I decided I wanted to share the gift of yoga with others so enrolled in a 2 year teacher training program at Inner Dance Yoga Studio. I have been teaching for over 6 years, with over 500 hours of teaching experience. I combine different disciplines that offer an eclectic experience to my students. I am fascinated by the body and continue to learn through self-study and attending workshops offered by master teachers. By integrating the most current research on body mechanics with the traditional teachings I try to keep my classes constantly evolving. Specializing in teaching students over 50, I offer vigorous classes yet am mindful of the challenges that aging brings to our bodies. Overall I emphasize proper positioning, deep stretches and moving with the breath to connect, hopefully bringing my students to an outwardly exerted but inwardly blissful state by the end of class.
