I opened Harmony Yoga in 2004 and am very grateful to our students and teachers for their loyalty and good will that allows us to live up to our name! I like to have fun and enjoy interacting with people while I teach. It's important to me to offer ideas for people to take the practice of paying attention off the mat and into theirs lives in simple brushing your teeth with your non-dominant hand or using good alignment while working in the garden. My certification is in Amrit Yoga which emphasizes meditative breaks after each pose. I also have studied with teachers from the Iyengar tradition and value the alignment focus of that way of practicing. Beyond that I draw from my years of Martial Arts training and more recently the work of Kathleen Porter, author of Natural Posture for Pain Free Living.
