I have enjoyed a rich and deep yoga practice for most of my life. My mother practiced yoga when I was young and my sister and I would relish the shoulderstand pose throughout our childhood, if we could keep from giggling at the same time. I trained concurrently in dance and understood the importance of balance in movement--for safety, for beauty. As I have evolved, I have experimented with many different schools within Hatha Yoga and love them all for different reasons. I relish the gym yoga classes where we would collectively power and flow through the most challenging poses. As I have gotten older, I have learned to appreciate a slower practice that focuses on posture that I can incorporate for longer yoga sessions. Recently, I have been blown away by Kundalini Yoga and the freedom that the discipline has opened up in my spine. I bring all of these influences to my work with students. It is truly a blessing to be able to share with others the health that yoga has brought into my life.
