I started yoga over 20 years ago when I was in the final years of school, mainly because I loved fitness and running, but it had left my body feeling tight and inflexible - and I really wanted to be able to touch my toes! I eventually discovered the vigorous practice of Ashtanga yoga, which I have been dedicated to for over 10 years and I love the strength and progressive nature of this style of yoga.
I also teach yin yoga, the perfect complement to busy lifestyles, and I love the meditative aspect of this practice. Over years of practice, I can appreciate the tremendous spiritual and mental benefits yoga has brought to my everyday life.
My classes combine my anatomy and science knowledge from my 17 year career as a pharmacist, as well as my massage training and yoga experience, to create yoga sequences for athletes as well as the general public, including therapy ball work to release trigger points and knots.
I have studied and trained with many Ashtanga teachers including David, Simi and Youngblood Roche, Gregor Maehle, Monica Gauci, David Swenson and Kino Macgregor, as well as Yoga Therapy with Flo Fenton. I have studied Yin Yoga with Jennifer Crescenzo and Jo Phee. I am an eternal student and look forward to bringing you a cumulation of knowledge in my classes.
