I am a retired licensed Social Worker, and an advanced yoga teacher.
I have been enjoying yoga since 1988, and teaching yoga and meditation since 1990. My initial yoga teacher training was completed in Quebec, Canada, thru Sivananda, where I became a registered yoga teacher with 200+ hours training (RYT 200). My advanced training was completed thru the Institute of Progressive Therapies in San Diego, CA, bringing me to the 500+ hour level of RYT 500.
I work gently with all levels of students, from brand new beginners, thru experienced teachers. I work with people who are fairly healthy, as well as people with physical limitations and/or dis-eases. It is a pleasure and a joy to share yoga, and witness what it does for people.
My yoga is gentle and deep, and is an ecletic combination of many styles and flavors of yoga plus what I have discovered on my own. I have been influenced by Iyengar, Sivananda, Scaravelli styles, and by Judith Lassiter, Esther Meyers, Angela Farmer, June Burden, and many other wonderful yoga teachers. I like to assist others in learning to live better in their bodies with yoga principles, and discover how yoga can be a wonderful tool for repair, restoration, empowerment, strength, energy, balance and joy, not to mention helping us integrate body, mind, spirit into the fullness of wholeness. It is fun and it is good and it is surprising what yoga does for us when we give it just a bit of time.
