About Me

Yoga has always been present in my life growing up in one form or another; through my Mother and her friends. However it wasn’t until I first went to India before it really spoke to me. I had the great fortune of learning from a really speacial human, teacher and now friend.

I came to Yoga carrying injuries and tension in my body and walked away feeling full of light , rejuvenated and strong. As I delved deeper into my practice I discovered the more subtle benefits of the Yoga such as mental clarity and patience. Also a deep compassion for myself and other beings.

Life long journey from the self through the self to the self. Strength and integration of the body mind and heart

It is my wish as a teacher to share the light and peace that I have found through the weaving together of breath and movement. Also tools of patience and clarity we all need to ride the waves of life.
