Describe yourself in three words: Optimistic, determined, direct.

Why do you teach Yoga? It’s made such a difference in my own life. I really wanted to share.

Something surprising about you: Tough marketing professional by day. Confident, compassionate yoga instructor by night.

 

What inspires you? People’s ability to see the best in any situation, to overcome challenges and adversity and to experience life to its fullest.

What's the scariest thing on your bucket list? Hmmm, dying to do flying trapeze but not sure I have the nerve.

Where did you get your training/certifications?
I have several certifications and have attended yoga workshops and trainings in all different styles since 1987. The biggest influence on my skill as a teacher has been from teaching yoga to thousands of students over the last 13 years at Thrive. My style is derived from the yoga tools that are the most effective and most pleasurable ways to live a conscious, healthy and loving life.
