I teach hatha yoga, a blend of meditation, breathing, asanas, and relaxation. My personal yoga practice is rooted in the Iyengar tradition which inspires me to teach with the principles of alignment while offering students a nurturing and open, friendly class. I am  playful and lighthearted while  encouraging students to explore their own patterns to discover a deeper experience of yoga and life. I like to begin and end class with readings ranging from Rumi to the Yoga Sutras, and from the Bhagavad Gita to contemporary poetry.

I have been practicing yoga since 1986 when a friend invited me to a class after my son was born. Over the years my practice has varied, stopped completely, and been revived. After many years of contemplation, I finally saw that my path was in teaching.  I received my 200 hour teacher certification in May 2010.
