Yoga Instructor (E-RYT500), and Healing Touch Certified Practitioner


My philosophy is to introduce and instill the basic foundations of yoga within my students.  Assisting them to integrate their mind, body and breath while developing awareness. And in this awareness, to feel their strength and release tension; as well as, recognize and accept their limitations, taking advantage of modifications in their practice. Each individual learns to adjust their practice to complement their unique body, mind and spirit, whatever that may be for them.

I have practiced yoga for over 22 years primarily in the Iyengar style.  For 12 years I have taught, and continue to teach, public classes as well as semi and private sessions primarily to seniors; and, people with neurological disorders and immune deficiencies like, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's, Fibromyalgia and Arthritis. In addition I develop restorative and strengthening exercise plans that may be beneficial for the have back, neck, shoulder, wrists, hip, knees, etc.  I also assist cancer patients providing mediation and visualization techniques.

I acquired my 500 hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Certification in 2009.  I am a member of the International Yoga Alliance with a rating of experienced 500 hour training with over 2,000 hours of teaching.  I am also a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists and attend annual conferences.
I became an Healing Touch Certified Practitioner in 2012.  Energy healing is an energy based technique that balances the body, mind, emotions and spirit.  I assess the magnetic energy centers of the body, and outer magnetic fields around and above the body, to determine what needs the body has to function vibrationally and energetically sound.  Blocks or stagnant energy in the body's energy centers or outer fields can cause physical pain, even if the root of the problem is emotional or mental.  healing Touch is safe for babies, animals and adults and works in harmony with standard medical care and other alternative modalities.
