I started practicing yoga in 1978 while living on a Greek Island, where classes were free. I received my first teaching certification in 1995 from Kripalu. Since then, I have studied Iyengar, Ashtanga, Hatha and Anusara yoga under many wonderful teachers in many places. In 1997 I spent a year in Mexico, studying Ashtanga yoga under Barbara Luboff as well as Anusara under John Friend when he was first developing the system. A few years ago, I traveled to Mysore, India to study at Patthabi Jois’ institute when he was still alive. And this winter, I was fortunate enough to travel to Rwanda to teach yoga to people who are HIV positive & victims of domestic abuse, an experience in which I feel I got more than I gave.
