I discovered yoga as a teen when I found a record describing yoga poses at the library. Afterwards, I bought a few books and practiced at home using the illustrations. I was very drawn to yoga but couldn't understand at the time quite why.

Over the next 30 years I practiced whenever I could but was busy teaching and raising my daughter. After 22 years I took an early retirement which gave me the opportunity to become immersed in yoga.

I began teacher training in order to learn more about the philosophy, psychology and spirituality of yoga for my own personal growth without the intention of teaching. Gradually, I discovered that I wanted to share my love of yoga, far beyond the physical practice. Yoga has completely transformed my life and has given me peace, balance, presence and joy.

I am very grateful to all of the teachers with whom I've trained and the many whose classes I've taken. They have each supported me on my path in ways they can't even imagine.

I am also certified in yin, restorative, trauma/addiction yoga, wall vinyasa, chair yoga, and reiki. I also love teaching yoga nidra meditation.

"The quieter you become the more you can hear." -Ram Dass

Yin yoga is a deliciously deep, meditative and reflective practice in which floor-based postures are held for an extended period of time.

Unlike a dynamic yang practice that works the muscles through repetition, Yin works the deeper layers of the body such as the fascia, connective tissues, joints and bones. Yin is a deeply healing and nourishing practice with profound physical, emotional and energetic effects. During challenging times in our lives, our emotions can deplete our bodies of energy. The nourishing practice of Yin yoga helps to restore that energy for overall wellbeing. 

Enjoy nurturing hands-on assists that move you towards a peaceful replenishment of body and spirit. Yin yoga is a wonderful compliment to any level of practice.
