Instructor
 
Ever since I can remember, dancing and any many forms of movement has been a primary part of my life. My transfer for my love of dance easily transferred to the love of the movement of yoga. The reason I started doing yoga was due to an injury, when I was able to stop going to the chiropractor due to my yoga practice is when I knew there was something so much more to this movement to be explored. This lead me to want to share my love of yoga with others and thus led me to teacher training at St. Paul College. Yoga is something I love and crave to do daily. Having trained for over twenty-five years in a diversity of dance disciplines, I bring an innovative, expressive, and soulful element to my teaching style. I have been developing a strong Yoga practice for the past twenty years, and decided to get Yoga alliance certified training to instruct Yoga in 2012. Being able to help people develop and grow through their own yoga practice is an especially rewarding experience for me. Helping people to connect to their body, mind, and spirit through their yoga practice is what I love to do!
