Favorite Yoga Phrase: "When your body is healthy, your mind is healthy and anything becomes possible."
Favorite Yoga Posture: Trikonasana
Yoga is a practice that enables us to reconnect with our bodies - to see imbalances and patterns which are or will become detrimental to our wellbeing and to address them - to keep our joints healthy and "juicy" - to build the strength and fluidity that keeps us upright and mobile as we age. And we can do all of this and have fun at the same time:
I teach in an informal style, and I try to bring humor and compassion to the serious pursuit of uniting body, breath and mind. Laughing is allowed and welcome.I have been teaching Yoga in the MOV since receiving my Yoga Alliance certified Teacher Training Certificate in 2004. Continuing my education since then, I’ve studied with Donna Farhi, Cyndi Lee, Doug Keller, Stephanie Pappas and Sianna Sherman. These and other teachers, as well as my students, have influenced and inspired my teaching and my yoga.
