I began to study yoga in 1988, and never intended to teach. But in 2002 my instructor moved away, convincing me to take over her classes. Unexpectedly, I found a calling.
Over the years I've experienced a variety of yoga styles, and taken workshops and classes with respected teachers such as Andrey Lappa, Jason Crandell, Felicity Green, and Paul Grilley. I completed a 200-hour Ashtanga vinyasa teacher training in 2003 and a 70-hour prenatal teacher training in 2005. But I think all of this is less relevant than my personal style in the classroom. Than all the things a resume can't tell you.
If you want an all-powerful, external authority figure to tell you what to do, and claim to know what's best for you, then I may not be the yoga teacher for you. I want you to listen to yourself and your body, really pay attention and, primarily, figure things out for yourself. This takes time and dedication and self respect. I want you to be real — not perfect — and unique. I don't want your yoga to look like everybody else's. I want you to be you, just as you are.
I look forward to the opportunity to share some yoga with you.
