I was first introduced to yoga as therapy for an injury when I was 18 and have been practicing ever since. I fell in love with the benefits of yoga and became certified as an instructor in 1996. Since then, I have deepened my investigation of the body’s subtle energies: I am also a reiki practitioner; have created several visualization meditations; and have developed workshops involving yoga, meditation, the mind/body connection and creativity—all of which have deepened my understanding of integrative health, relational physiology, and body awareness. I am a certified yoga instructor through the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center and hold a BA in Art and Creative Writing from Hunter College.
My style is gentle and very much about mind/body awareness. Besides gentle hatha yoga, restorative, and meditation, I teach live and online workshops exploring writing and the body connection. I am an artist, writer, avid mountain biker as well. I love living in Flagstaff!
