I believe in the transformative power of yoga. Having received my first of many Teaching certifications in 1999, I have been passionately sharing the multidimensional facets of yoga practice with my students and clients.
Drawing from my studies and experience in Hatha yoga, Yoga therapy, Ashtanga yoga, and Yin yoga, my intention is to create a space for students to practice safely and intelligently while offering the deep inner calm and insight treasured by the very first yogis.
I began my professional massage career in 1988, after graduating from Holistic Healing Arts Center in Doylestown PA. Through the years I have amassed many hours of continuing education in various modalities of treatment.
