Hello and Namaste! Originally my education and professional goals were on track for a career in counseling.  However, a few years after completing graduate school and working in higher education, I had the privilege to experience yoga ( pranayama and asana) for the first time during an extended trip to India. It was the catalyst to making profound changes to my life.  Practicing yoga postures, and working with the breath, played an important role in my recovery from post-partum depression. Motivated by the transformative shifts within myself, I began teaching yoga in 2004. Over the years, I have taught yoga to a variety of different populations; from teens to seniors, and I have experience teaching a few different styles of yoga; from power yoga to the more restorative and gentler practices.  After teaching for more than a decade, and personally experiencing all the permutations that my own practice has moved through, I realize that regardless of the style of yoga – one’s practice is ultimately and completely about transformation of the inner self. This has propelled me to study the philosophy of yoga in more depth and to explore the teachings of meditation, particularly in the Buddhist Vipassana (Insight) tradition. I have completed 300 hours of study and practice in Mindful Yoga and Meditation, which is the beautiful blending of Yoga and Dharma in one’s practice of postures and in sitting/walking meditation. Nowadays my practice and teaching methodology is to nurture compassion for the inner being and to cultivate a mindful attention to the full experience of the present moment in both movement and in stillness. I welcome the opportunity to share my love for the Dharma and Yoga with you.
