Who I am:
A lifelong explorer of Yoga, meditation and healing.

What I teach:
Embodied Meditation

Why I teach:
To share yoga as a pathway to the unfoldment of our human and spiritual natures as an integrated whole. My class is gentle, Exploratory, Subtle, Spacious.  It includes study as well as movement inquiries into physical body anatomy and subtle body anatomy.

What brought me to Yoga:

Favorite Pose:
Sitting Meditation brings me great joy and peace in the midst of the ups and downs of daily living.
