Over 25 years ago, under the tutelage of a very wise, experienced yoga instructor, I learned the proper alignment needed to create a solid foundation for a lifelong yoga practice. For the past 20 years I have fulfilled the desire to reconnect myself, and others, in mind, body and spirit by teaching and living yoga. I bring to the practice a gentle and self-nurturing approach to opening the heart, connecting the body and breath and allowing the spirit to fill with the joy of being alive.
In addition to yoga, I began my journey with Thai Body Therapy. I studied at The White Lotus in the beautiful hills above Santa Barbara with Paul Weitz and Phoebe Diffler. Since my initial training in 2005, I have returned twice to the California hills to further my training with Saul David Ray, the King of Western Thai Massage, in Ojai, California. Recently I have continued my Thai Body Therapy education online with an instructor in Thailand.
Experience includes: certification in Mind-Body Alignment Yoga, 6 month teachers training @ the Boise Yoga Center, workshops with Judith Lassiter, Mariel Hemingway, Christi Brock, Michelene Berry, Norman Allard, Max Strom and in 2013 completed 200 hour certification with Shannon Wells-Femenia. Studied Thai Body Therapy with Jeffry Clark, Saul David Ray, Phoebe Diffler, Paul Weitz and Deon DeWitt.
