In 1991, I took two summer classes: DOS Programming and Yoga. The computer information didn’t stick, but yoga captured my attention from the very first class: I felt taller and quieter.
I was a student of Denise Benitez at Seattle Yoga Arts for many years and I began to teach yoga in 2003. I am a Registered Yoga Teacher (Certified Yoga Teacher, E-RYT® 200, RYT® 500, YACEP®) through Yoga Alliance.
I've been inspired by those who explore and teach in related fields: biomechanics, deep tissue release, and strength education. The flavor and content of my instruction reflects this inspiration, and I feel that this supports people in their bodies in a more holistic way.
My clear instruction style stems from a desire to make what I teach as accessible as possible. The classes I offer build students’ capacities to trust their own innate intelligence, which is alive in the body, breath, and mind.
I'm grateful for this path and for all that I've learned, consciously and accidentally!
