I have been practicing yoga for more than 30 years and have been teaching since 2009. I have deep compassion for those who have experienced trauma. Trained with the Veterans Yoga Project, I learned mindful resilience techniques to help those who are experiencing PTS and/or moral injury as well as anyone who has experienced trauma in their lives.
I also have 50+ hours of training in anatomy and therapeutic yoga practices and believe that anyone can do yoga regardless of limitations. Honoring your body and celebrating its capabilities is key to an injury-free yoga practice.
500 + hours of certifications. My training includes a 200-hour yoga instructor certification from the Pacific Yoga Teacher Training and Advanced Studies Program with Theresa Elliott and Katherine Payne; a 300-hour certification in Yoga Psychology with Ashley Turner.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in special education from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. In addition, I spent 20 years as a video producer and have written two children’s books with another one in the works. Yoga is a way of life for me. When I am not teaching yoga, I enjoy my own yoga practice, time
on the dance floor, being in nature, and spending time with my husband, children, and 90-pound labrador retriever.
