Recently completed the beginners L1 series with Deborah, she is “AWESOME” learnt so much from her. So disappointed that I wasn't able to continue to L2 but, I will definitely try other classes in my spare time.
Yoga Certifications: • Iyengar Yoga Teacher with Junior Intermediate II certification and 5,000+ hours of study.

My Teaching Philosophy: Helping other people is the key to becoming a better person. This idea is the basis of karma yoga, using work and service as a way of awakening one’s self, and others. The wisdom of the Yamas and the Niyamas of the Sutras of Patanjali points us in the direction of understanding how to approach our teachers, our students and our own practice. I choose to teach for my journey, on my journey to becoming that better person.
My Happy Place: is a warm morning on my front porch with a view of my garden, feet on the railing, a novel in hand, tea on the table beside me, my cat on my lap.
I am available for Private Yoga Sessions
