Yoga/Pilates Teacher

Perhaps the most spiritual thing any of us can do is simply to look through our own eyes, see with eyes of wholeness and act with integrity and kindness.

My story: I began practicing yoga in 1999. The classes were on a Sunday in a local gym. I confess back then I didn&;t even know what yoga was. It was not long after that I began to look forward to Sundays with anticipation, excited to go to the gym and practice. Oneday, I took the plunge. I approached my teacher and asked “Where can I learn more about this?” Her answer was: “Go to India to this ashram in the south…”. Two months later I was on a plane to that ashram in India to cultivate my practice and hone my skills. On that journey I explored different styles, teachers and places. The rest is history. The vastness of this subject; its depth; and its beauty can be overwhelming. I tried and practiced many different styles before I found the style that speaks to me best: Iyengar Yoga. A type of Hatha Yoga that focuses on alignment, strength and unity of body and mind . Iyengar Yoga was developed by Guruji B.K.S. Iyengar whom I met in Pune, India on several occasions. I feel gratitude from the depth of my heart to all my teachers: The Iyengar family, Hart Lazer, and Radjiv & Swati Chanchanis. Their graciousness in sharing their knowledge with me has allowed me to experience the joy of Yoga.
