In her words:

I found Yoga at an impressionable age of 15, around 1977, a small class in Queens, NY, thanks to my oldest sister who wanted me to experience yoga. I was on and off practicing through career, marriage, and motherhood, but never taking the practice seriously. Stress began to build from work, family, and just overall living. I got sick at 40, bell’s palsy, the right side of my face fell, my right eye stayed open, my memory skipped, neck swelled, and I could not speak. I had difficulty eating, drinking, and thinking. I heard of a nurse teaching yoga in a small strip mall sponsored by the YMCA. I showed up. I was extremely grateful. I considered it a miracle that this class was being given in my small town. With help from my mother, sheer desperation and yoga class, I healed.


I never stopped yoga. I felt liberated with a progressive yoga studio, but after 2 years of continuous stress on my body, I felt this type of vigorous yoga was not for me. I started teaching at my home, my way – slower, instinctively and with more knowledge. I received 200-hour RYT certification through My Vinyasa Practice in Austin, TX. Then in 2022 received a 300 hour RYT, and registered by Yoga Alliance at the 500 hour level.


I am also certified Yoga for Trauma, twice certified in Yoga Nidra, Neuroscience & Yoga in treatment of Complex Developmental or Repeated Trauma. I am approved as a Yoga Therapist by MVP in Austin, Texas and am currently working on a certification by International Yoga Therapist Association, as well as finishing up 1000 hours of Yoga Education.


I practice and teach all types of yoga modalities. My expertise and favorites are Vinyasa, Yin, Yoga Nidra, Restorative Yoga and Chair Yoga. I am truly grateful for Michele Young at MVP School of Yoga. She is the founder and my mentor. Her lineage of teachers is very impressive, and I am proud to say I am part of that lineage.
