Yoga has been a part of my life for more than 30 years. I have practiced a variety of traditions and styles including Hatha, Kundalini, Vinyasa, and Aerial yoga. I completed 200-hour certification training at Columbia Yoga Center, MD. focused on postural alignment, sequencing, and precision, based on B.K.S. Iyengar's teachings. My Advanced Teacher Training (RYT500) included a therapeutic approach at Body Balance Yoga in Annapolis, MD. I also participated in teacher training for VaihAyasa Aerial Yoga, Levels I and II. Yoga has become a lifestyle beyond the physical benefits of the practice of asana, including mindfulness, compassion, and acceptance of self and others. In addition to my passion for yoga, I teach online courses for Wilmington University, enjoy traveling, bicycling, and gardening, and I’m married with three adult children.
