Having worked in mental health services since 1994 with a focus on family therapy, depression and attention deficit disorder, I am well acquainted with a variety of healing modalities. Nonetheless & ONLY after delving deeply over the past 6 years into the practice of asana (poses) and pranayama (yogic breathing) within the Iyengar tradition, do I now feel empowered with a veritable toolbox of practices for physical and mental health that positively enhance quality of life. These practices are a gift to share with others searching for grounding, inspiration and an overall sense of well being.
With 5 years+ experience teaching the Fundamental series, Level I and Level I/II asana classes and 3+ years conducting private one-on-one sessions, it’s been my privilege and education to witness myself and others with unique bodies, histories and ailments develop greater health from the inside out with the kind of substantive growth you can see and feel.
