Like many of you, I was born able to touch my toes. Only later did I realize that this natural gift requires maintenance!
I started to practice yoga and meditation on a trip to Nepal between high school and college in 1987. Through college and afterward, yoga helped me feel better physically and also became a lifeline to the best parts of myself - the aforementioned toes and, more importantly for me, mental and emotional balance. I received my Kripalu certification in 1997 and have been teaching since then, based in White River Junction, Vermont.
My teaching blends compassionate awareness of moment-by-moment experience with self-inquiry to dive deeper into what it means to be alive. I am fortunate to continue to learn from my students and many wonderful movement and meditation teachers, including Peentz Dubble and her heartfelt translations of the Iyengar method, and Carrie Owerko, whose joyful and playful approach to movement is all about increasing our capacities to do what is meaningful for us.
I look forward to seeing you on the mat and playfully re/discovering the best parts of ourselves. Namaste.
