For 30 years I have explored yoga as a path to healing and wholeness.
My career as a yoga teacher began with my first training, under Judith Lasater at Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco. During that time, I made my first journey to India to practice with B.K.S. Iyengar and his family. When I moved to Bellingham, I earned two levels of Certification under Senior Teacher Ingela Abbott of Yoga Northwest, each of which requires a year of preparation.
I was inspired to become a Yoga Therapist because of my own experience in psychotherapy and physical therapy, I could see there were connections not being addressed by either separately, and that I could achieve in a one-on-one setting.
To that end I became a Certified Yoga Therapist with over 800 hours of training through the International Association of Yoga Therapy, and I continue to enrich my practice with ongoing trainings.
As a Yoga Therapist, I really listen and reflect back to my clients. My intention is to teach my clients to view themselves authentically, with compassion, patience, more open-heartedness and less judgment. My calling is to guide clients to hear their own inner wisdom and feel true confidence, empowerment, and ultimately find “their place in the family of things.”
