She has had the honor of sitting next to Larry in over 40 trainings, and each day lives in gratitude for the many gifts her marriage and practice with Larry has bestowed on her life. It is with this sense of love that she continues to share the gifts of It’s Yoga with the international community and travels the globe to practice and play with the It’s Yoga Family. Her style is sweet, strong and wise as she extends the benefits of Rocket Vinyasa Yoga. She is based in Toledo, Ohio where she opened It’s Yoga Toledo in March of 2012.
