I am thankful to have been studying and teaching yoga for more than twenty-five years. I began practicing yoga in 1991 and teaching from BKS Iyengar's philosophy in 1996.
I choose to study and teach in this style of yoga because it requires teachers to understand and share the many layers of knowledge that are found in the purity of ancient yoga texts.
Along with yoga, my greatest passions include healthy communities, exploring natural and sacred places, backpacking, walking (especially in the woods), and cooking.
I received my Bachelor's degree in Geography from Florida State University, where I created a sustainability focus with emphasis on many ways of reducing carbon footprints and supporting local food.
I am grateful to explore and share in the teachings of BKS Iyengar, who truly found the purpose of asana as a way of self-study to cultivate optimal connection into layers to soul or self.
Iyengar Yoga is a refined art and science, teaching us to take more time to be in the body to receive the many rewards: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
Yoga practice reminds us to seek to understand ourselves, humanity, and our natural world with clarity and compassion.
