My yoga journey began with a free Kripalu class in 1998 at the Richmond Free Library with Pat Weaver. From that moment, I was hooked.
Here is the summary of my training…

Sprinkled in there, and not listed, are various workshops, either attended locally, at Kripalu, or at Omega. I have my full Reiki Master’s training and additional experience with Yin Yoga, Partner Yoga, and classes in spirituality.
There are many aspects to yoga that I love. I guess the most important for me right now is that it “puts me back together”. Simply living life pulls and reforms us, sometimes not in the direction of health & happiness. Yoga lets me get into who I am and realigns me, not just physically.
My intent in teaching is to guide others so that they may find greater health & happiness.
