"It seems I have always been a student and am deeply grateful for the wisdom shared by my many instructors. I am excited and hopeful to share this knowledge of yoga, etc. with others, to enable them to find balance, harmony, and greater personal awareness, giving them a break from their hectic lives as well as tools to help maneuver through life’s challenges as they present themselves. I look forward to helping others to customize their yoga practice to fit their needs and allow them to realize the wonderful, all-encompassing benefits I have experienced.
You can expect my classes to be lighthearted, yet mindful, catering to each individual, encouraging modifications as needed.
When not sharing yoga with others, you will find me playing with my grandchildren, teaching indoor cycling classes, walking, bicycling, and doing my favorite pastime – baking cookies!"
