I am a certified yoga instructor and a registered E-RYT. I am the owner of Namaskar Yoga Studios and teach classes in Hatha, Restorative and Yin. I am passionate about the practice and benefits of yoga. I love helping others discover the deep spirituality of yoga and sharing the life philosophy that blooms from the physical and mental practice of yoga. I teach both adult and children's yoga classes. I teach various community classes and travel to teach at special events. I also offer private sessions to introduce the practice to individuals who are new to yoga to help them become more comfortable in group classes or assist students of yoga refine their practice. I am a certified yoga instructor with Lifepower Fitness and the National Yoga Alliance. I have taught yoga at a variety of venues and to people aged 4 to 90. My education extends beyond my passion for yoga with a BS in Psychology and a Masters Degree in Pastoral Ministry. I have also been employed as a Youth Minister, Director of Children's Religious Education and continue to volunteer with youth. I have led various spirituality retreats and been involved in community leadership programs. My focus has always been on exploring how we, as dynamic human beings, attain fulfillment, health and a strong sense of well being. I am most concerned with social justice, equality and using yoga to facilitate progress in these area. I also work hard to make our studio space accessible and inclusive. I hope to encourage others to explore yoga, stimulate those already practicing to go deeper, or simply provide useful information to promote healthy life habits.
