I was a full-time homemaker and after my 3 daughters were in school full-time, I realized that my life had changed and I to needed to redefine my role in life. I began taking massage classes at MTTI and discovered that I love helping people heal. So I completed the curriculum and became a Certified Massage Therapist. Meanwhile I took my first yoga class in 1998 while finishing my certification. At first I loved it as a self-care for myself as a body worker, but began to see how the relationship between massage and the wisdom of yoga could also benefit my clients.
I received my 200 RYT with Suzette Schultes’ Yoga School of Therapeutics. Through her certification I have studied with many amazing teachers like Doug Keller, Aadil Palkhivala, Rod Striker and many others. I am also certified as a “Relax and Renew” teacher by Judith Hanson Laster. I love to share the therapeutic and restorative qualities of yoga.
Recently, I attended a workshop by Gary Kraftsow. I experienced his “Viniyoga” and was transformed. This form of yoga is deep, gentle, powerful and life changing for me. I have attended the first of 4 two-week intensives to become a Certified Viniyoga Teacher.
I love learning and sharing with and from my students. I hope I will always see “through the eye of the student”.
