I began studying yoga in graduate school, at Smith College in 1973, before there was such a thing as yoga certification. My from Smith College is the certification. As a professional modern dancer, from NYC, my practice of yoga has always complemented my career. I have taught yoga off and on since 1976, but until recently have concentrated mostly on teaching modern dance at universities throughout the United States, Canada, and Hong Kong. I was Director of Dance at University of Colorado, Boulder, and then taught at UC Santa Cruz for 16 years, as well as at Cabrillo College. I taught Yoga at Gavilan College in Gilroy and currently teach at Minorsan Fitness and Self Defense in Santa Cruz.
