I graduated from Zenya Yoga Academy in Newport News in April of 2013 with my 200-hour RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher Certification with Yoga Alliance). I have been been teaching yoga since May 2013.
After running track in high school and continuing on for several decades thereafter, I found that my maturing body yearned for a kinder and gentler physical workout program. For the past seven years I have participated in yoga and found that it not only filled my body’s need for exercise but opened in me an awareness that body, mind and spirit are interlocked. I believe that each class belongs to the participant and I cultivate an atmosphere where each individual is challenged, yet comfortable in their pose. I retired from NASA after a career in Government procurement and training. I am in my sixth year working as a volunteer at the Gloucester Mathews Care Clinic assisting patients in securing medical care. I am a wife and mother and currently reside in Gloucester with my husband and puppies; a pug and a mauser.
