I began practicing yoga in 1988 and have been teaching since 1994. I was one of the original founders of the Alameda Yoga Station, which opened in 1995. I graduated from the Berkeley Yoga Room's Advanced Studies Program in 1996. I am also an elementary school teacher and am on a women's rowing team. I live in Alameda with my husband, teenage daughter, two dogs, six chickens and one horse (okay, the horse actually lives in Oakland). I have found yoga provides equanimity to my full life. I find great joy in assisting other people in their quest for self-awareness through teaching yoga. I teach restorative classes the last week of every month as an antidote to our busy lives.
