My goal is for my students to understand how to integrate efficient breath patterns, mindfulness practices and proper postural body mechanics into their daily activities.
Over 20 years ago, I sought after yoga to learn how to calm myself. From those weekly classes, I noticed physical improvements. I vowed to always be a student and teacher of yoga as it brought balance to my life. I logged over 1000 hours with guru's of Iyengar, Integral, Kripalu, and Anusara styles of yoga way before there was a governing body like Yoga Alliance.
An injury from a shoulder stand sent me to a Physical Therapist. I knew that I wanted to help others learn their body and how to prevent and treat pain/injury. I attained a Doctorate degree from the University of St. Augustine and practiced in the areas of Pediatrics, Neurology, and Outpatient Physical Therapy.
I continued to study yoga philosophy, form, and therapy. In fact, I will always study yoga and integrate it with my professional background. I love Ray Long's Bandha Yoga but balance the structural with the philosophical foundations of yoga. I teach yoga at corporations, in studio, virtually, and private parties. I love Aerial yoga classes to use the prop to benefit the body in ways non anti-gravity poses just cannot.
