I have practiced yoga since 1976, when I first stumbled into the Integral Yoga Institute in New York. Since then, I have been certified through Integral Yoga to teach Basic and Intermediate Hatha Yoga, along with Restorative Yoga. I have also practiced Iyengar Yoga and taken classes with teachers who have eclectic styles. My own teaching is largely grounded in the Integral Yoga approach, emphasizing "comfortable and steady" postures, alignment, breath, meditation, and deep relaxation. I recently completed another 200-hour teacher training with Mary E. Byerly at Panacea de la Montana in Costa Rica.
