I began  practiced yoga in  2000 and found Parayoga in 2003 when I began studying with my teacher Yogarupa Rod Stryker – life changing!  Study with him continues – I am  inspired by his dedication to growth, his reverence for his teachers and the teachings, and his great sense of humor!   Love being a certified Four Desires trainer – 1 of approx. 25 students who have been trained to offer this life-changing work based on Rod’s book The Four Desires. I appreciate all I learned from Sarah and Ty Powers , and the study of  alignment based yoga with Jordan Bloom.Curious and passionate about learning,  I became an Ayurveda Health Counselor in 2015, completing the NAMA certified 650 hr program with Dr Rosy Mann – director of Kripalu’s School of Ayurveda and Kathryn Templeton of Yoga International fame!

To share with others the gifts I has received from all my teachers is what inspire me to teach!

In her own words…

The 3 Words that describe me are … Curious, Committed, Exuberant

My favorite quote is … “Your inner teacher is connected to the same stream of consciousness that all the great teachings and great teachers have come from…”

Lately I’m inspired … by the elegance and intelligence of Ayurveda

My favorite style to teach is … Parayoga – Alignment oriented – with an emphasis on creating steadiness in both body and mind.
