I began practicing yoga in 1994 and was immediately hooked.
When I learned I could study to become a yoga teacher with Marni Task, my favorite yoga teacher in the Cleveland area, I decided to take the plunge. I graduated from Marni's 200-hour Jivasara teacher training program in June 2009, and I've been happily teaching ever since. I am a certified yoga teacher and am registered as an E-RYT (experienced registered yoga teacher) with the Yoga Alliance. I am also a certified Thai Yoga Massage practitioner.
In the classes I teach, students are invited to explore and deepen their practice as I guide them with detailed alignment instruction, suggestions for modifications, and hands-on assists and adjustments. I work with all levels of practitioner, from brand-new beginners to advanced students. All are welcome! Students will hear inspirational and uplifting music as well as silence, do some devotional chanting, learn how the teachings found in ancient and sacred texts of yoga can be applied to modern life, be asked to bring awareness and focus to their breath, be encouraged to find optimal alignment in their postures, and be invited to bring mindfulness to all areas of their practice.
