TEACHING PHILOSOPHY: I blend the ancient wisdom of yoga with mindful innovation to teach a yoga class that is both accessible to the general public and adaptable to the unique demands of our modern lifestyle. The heart of my teaching lies in helping others stretch their bodies and their lives to the healthiest and most balanced state possible.
