I am a YOGA:

My main yoga teacher / studio / style is...
Anusara inspired Vinyasa Flow
One of the funniest (saddest, bizarre) thing that's ever happened (to me) in class is...
Something funny happens in each class, I hope to always create a playful environment where we can giggle at ourselves. I crack myself up all the time so you'll likely hear me laughing out loud in class for no reason.
Why do you 'do' (and/or teach) yoga.
Yoga has been my faithful companion since I was run over by a car as a pedestrian more than a decade ago. As part of my recovery, I started practicing yoga. My body and spirit were transformed through my practice and I dedicated myself to live more fully every day since. My loving Anusara-inspired Vinyasa Flow teaching style is influenced by more than 10 years of Hatha yoga study and I am gratefully committed to my three primary teachers: Shiva Rea, John Friend, and my students whom I truly love so dearly.

My classes are upbeat and fun, serious and informative, supportive and authentic. I use my own intuition along with people's questions, past injuries, and demonstrations to deepen the learning process. I hope that when students leave class, they are inspired to be good to themselves and thereby kinder to others.
More about me & my (yoga) work:
I am deeply honored to serve my students with the intention that while connected to their breath, they might feel each pose with an open heart and a quiet mind. Yoga then becomes a means to explore oneself more deeply in order to better face life’s challenges; many find that beauty and strength naturally emerge as byproducts.

To me the heart of teaching is as Neem Karoli Baba says “Love everyone, serve everyone” I believe yoga is for everybody! I truly hope folks take something meaningful with them into their daily life - an ability to live in the moment with love, honesty, patience and passion!


What other hobbies do you have aside from yoga practice?
I love going to the movies! - any of them really (comedy, action, drama etc). Photography, especially black and white - capturing the simplicity of each person's unique beauty, then using them as gifts for loved ones. Painting both on canvas and experimenting with the walls in my home. Traveling to seek out new experiences both near and far from home. Mostly I just like hanging out and seeing what happens...

What is the title of a book that you have read recently that you could strongly recommend?

Stroke of Insight by Jill Taylor
The Alchemist!!
The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari
It's Not About the Bike, Lance Armstrong
Wherever you go There you Are, John-Kabat Zinn
The Geography of Bliss (talks about happiness)

What is one of your all-time favorite movies

Can't pick just one...Singing in the Rain, Fiddler on the Roof, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, West Side Story, Shawshank Redemption, Philadelphia Story, Cinema Paradiso

3 REASONS WHY YOGA TEACHER TRAINING CHANGES YOUR LIFE

Posted on September 19, 2011 at 10:11pm 0 Comments

Something magical and mystical happens when a group of high-intentioned individuals make the decision to gather together for 200 hours with the purpose of uplifting their lives & expanding their consciousness into radical authenticity. The result is something beyond words.  It is, as best as I can explain it, the Alchemy of Yoga at its best.  Chapter 2 verse 1 of the Yoga Sutras sets forth how the Alchemy of Yoga actually works. "Tapas svadhyaya ishvara pranidhana kriya…

HOW TEACHER TRAINING IS A BLESSING

Posted on August 30, 2011 at 7:52pm 0 Comments

I love to start class with a sweet exercise called The 10 Blessings by Dr William Holden author of the book BE HAPPY.

"It goes like this, look over the last week of your life and think about 10 blessings you experienced in the last seven days.  It's not much to ask because all we need to do is find one blessing per 16.8 hours of life.  Now think about 10 ways you blessed others lives.  Ok that means you are consciously thinking of goodness every 8.4 hours. 

Now…

TRUST YOU CAN DO THIS

Posted on August 30, 2011 at 7:51pm 0 Comments

Yoga cultivates trust.  I am drawn back to the mat everyday to remind myself of this.  This practices helps us to trust ourselves: our thoughts, our feelings, our actions. Thereby lessening the volume of self-doubt.  As an author described Trust it is, "spiritual and emotional maturity." And when we trust what we think, say and feel then all our actions consistently support our personal growth.

To trust is to be grounded.

To trust is to be…
